I've worked for over “20 years as a psychotherapist, counsellor and coach with a private practice in Sydney’s EasternSuburbs.
It is always useful to have an initial chat on the phone which provides an opportunity to address specific needs. Our initial session would be looking at ways of working deeply on shifting any anxiety, balancing moods and strengthening inner core.
I offer practical tools and resources tools in addressing the shifts you are seeking to create in your life circumstances. These tools include exercises and awareness practices that help improve communication, de-escalate relationship conflicts and create pathways for deepening connection and intimacy. I am also experienced in using process oriented and mindfulness practices that support and empower you around shifting old patterns. and stuck belief systems and creating long term change.
I believe we are innately drawn towards living our wholeness – that our relationship conflicts, physical and emotional disturbances and dreams are our unconscious attempt to do so. I offer my knowledge and experience with compassion, safety and awareness.
Dr Arnold Mindell, the founder of Process Oriented Psychology, was originally a physicist and later a Jungian analyst in the late 1970’s. He developed a framework for encouraging clients to identify with unconscious experience through ‘unfolding’. Mindell found that body experiences and symptoms, life disturbances and recurring relationship issues mirror our night dreams and are meaningful expressions of the unconscious.
The unfolding process develops a heightened awareness of how we communicate and engage with the world around us. When we approach with curiosity and respect we are able to discover an inner order and coherence that can bring new meaning and positive purpose to our personal and collective growth.
Below is a beautiful infographic that details the elements, influences and principles of Process Oriented Psychology, which is know as an awareness model in counselling and psychotherapy.
Some of us may describe feeling a sense of healing when we’ve released something painful or difficult in our lives. But healing can also take place when we start to awaken our consciousness around our blindspots and blocks. This is particularly true of areas we don’t like and try to push down. We may try to ignore or repress our fears, jealousies, feelings of selfishness, resentment or revenge. They may be operating in our lives unconsciously and come up as chronic relationship issues, physical symptoms or disturbing dreams.
When we consciously unfold the energy of these qualities we can start to discover where they may actually be useful in our lives. This is part of integration and living from our wholeness. For example, if we find ourselves feeling bad about always feeling angry we may find releasing it as an energy helpful in feeling more in the flow, more relaxed or happy. But we may also need to learn how to unfold the energy of our anger and learn where it may be useful in our lives. If we started to consciously access its passion, power, drive and dynamism, we may discover areas where this energy could be more productive in our lives.
This is part of the law of the conservation of energy in physics, which says energy is not created or destroyed, but transformed. This is often a more useful viewpoint in long term healing than the notion of release.
My practice is in Coogee and is easily accessible via excellent bus routes from the City, Central Station and Bondi Junction. There is plenty of on-street parking.
