Therapeutic Modalities:

At its heart, Relational Life Therapy is guided by the principle of what Terry Real calls, "full respect living- the artful way of handling yourself that allows you to assert your truth and your needs while at the same time honouring the truth and needs of each person with whom you interact- especially those you love". Learn to understand and un-hook from patterns of thinking and feeling that can prevent you from experiencing the connection you want to have.
Narrative Therapy.
Narrative therapy takes its roots in the idea that people are made up of interacting stories that influence their sense of who they are- that the issues they bring to therapy are shaped by cultural discourses about identity and power. Narrative therapy centers around the rich and hopeful process of re-storying a person's narrative by re-considering, re-appreciating and re-authoring people's preferred lives and relationships (Stephen Madigan).
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy focuses on the interactions between our thoughts, behaviours and emotions. Learn how to interrupt the 'loop in your head', and make your choices more intentional.
When trauma happens, our nervous system is wisely designed to protect us by freezing up, running away or fighting if we can. Over time, and in the absence of an empathetic witness to our struggle, this can create a continued disconnect between our thoughts, emotions and bodies. Using curiosity, compassionate inquiry and mindfulness, learn how to listen to and safely reconnect with your whole self in ways that allows you to re-claim the values most important to you.

If you love what's in your way, it will transform...
