~ transpersonal, earth/nature based, holistic, and person-centred. All of you is included in a session; body, mind and spirit. This is also true for tarot and collage sessions.
~ family systems theory, somatic, shamanic and mindfulness based practices. I may incorporate guided meditation/visualization and experiential exercises or offer tools where appropriate.
~Your session is always about YOU. My role is to support you to the best of my ability. Together let's find a path of healing that honours you and aligns with who you are.
~ you are the best authority on your experience, and I recognize you as being fully capable of fulfilling your own potential for growth.
~ I will see YOU as the unique and beautiful individual you are, not the labels or patterns you may identify with.
~ the places you may feel stuck or the crises you experience are profound opportunities for growth and change.
~ I believe in going to the root of a problem or pattern rather than focusing only on surface symptoms.
~ I work organically and choose to be curious rather than certain, open rather than fixed on any one way of relating with you.
~ I encourage you to set intentions and do your work to grow, however the choice is always up to you.
