A soulful approach to life and meaning
Psychological therapy began its life as a modern day reappraisal of working with those who had experienced ‘Soul Loss’, yet on many occasions it may seem that much of what is offered merely ruffles and reorganises the surface of the things that trouble us. I find it useful to take the view, that people who are experiencing psychological suffering are not complex machines to which we can apply a set psychological theories, but rather, and most essentially, Souls. Souls in need of connection, meeting, meaning and renewal.
With this spirit, and resulting from my many years of experience of working therapeutically with a broad range of therapeutic material; bullying, trauma (including severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder such torture and sexual violence), physical, psychological, emotional and mental, and spiritual forms of abuse, substance-misuse, death and dying, anxiety, depression, self-harm, and many other complex clinical presentations, I offer long-term open-ended therapy, and can also provide brief psychological interventions. Both interventions at the depth needed to affect healing and renewal.
I also offer a ‘robust’ approach to post-traumatic growth. What I mean by this, is that deep soulful healing needs to be engaged with at depth, often clearing the rubble left in the wake of a personal disaster, before one can move on and find a way to come 'fully alive’ again. There is no point doing half a job!
