We offer a range of counselling modalities that can be of help to you, including Holotropic Breathwork.
As humans we tend to 'project' our problems, likes, dislikes, emotions, onto others,often making 'them' responsible for our feelings.
Processing the emotional content of one's issues leads to a release of the negative impact on the individual resulting in a more positive approach to life.
From our experience clients develop an inner understanding and personal trust of the process.
Over a period of time our clients discover within themselves resources that enable them to deal with and understand the challenges and situations, take personal responsability where appropriate or seek professional or legal assistance, instead of 'putting up' with abuse or ill treatment for example.
Counselling for children and teenagers, who may be learning to adjust to, and understand their emotions, comes with respect and acknowledgement of their feelings.
We offer the opportunity to discuss any presenting issues or, if that is unacceptable, a silent setting using techniques that are non-invasive yet allow the client time and space to explore and gain understanding from the process.
At one time a couple of young people presented with volutary mutism, there were, no spoken words. Yet they worked well in a quiet setting and eventually were able to express themselves effectively.
Adults of course have many concerns; about themselves; their children; aged parents; health and so on.
When there is a 'loaded' emotional content to current issues, and this is explored in a safe setting, it is often found that there are strong links from back in the client's own childhood and formative events that took place at that time.
Given time for the 'inner exploration', a positive emotional understanding (emotional intelligence) and congnitive resolution to those troubling or puzzling issues can be achieved.
We work with children, teens and adult clients covering a wide range of issues
We encourage free expression of emotions, in a safe and supportive environment.
