After years of participating in and studying the healing arts, I find that the best approach to helping people make the changes they want in their lives, is to use a combination of life coaching, counselling and spiritual healing. This approach is a more flexible and powerful way to help you effect more lasting change than can be achieved through a single therapy approach alone. I believe each individual has a unique way of learning and it is the therapy that needs to be tailored to the individual, not that the individual should adapt to the therapy approach. I approach counselling from a spiritual perspective, which covers not only standard counselling work but also healing and intuitive approaches. You can find out more information about how I approach helping people make the changes they want, by reading the what-is-core-energetics.html , what-is-nlp.html and what-is-theta-healing.html blog posts. As I continue to evolve on my own journey and take on additional study other modalities will be added to these methods.
What happens at the First Appointment?
I view the first meeting as an opportunity for you to explore whether working with me will help you find solutions to tackle the challenge(s) you are facing and achieve what you want. During this meeting I like to obtain a basic outline of the issue(s) which made you seek me out and identify what a good therapy outcome would look like for you. This meeting is also an opportunity for you to discover my style of working. I like to answer any questions you have about the way we work. I will let you know if I think the skills I have will make me effective in supporting you to find a solution to your problem. If I do not think I can be of help, I will make recommendations for alternatives that may be more helpful to you.
If I believe I can help you, I am aware that you might like to go away and think for a while before making a decision to work with me or not. Alternatively, you may like to organise a further meeting or more at the end of the session. I will usually give you some "homework" to do and some things to think about before the next session.
What is the difference between a Breakthrough Session and a normal Coaching Session?
Once you've decided to work with me, the 3 hour Breakthrough Coaching Session is recommended as the initial session. It is an NLP tool roughly divided into 3 sections (with coffee or tea breaks in between as necessary)
What other techniques do I use?
While verbal communication plays a major role in any therapy, as a Core Energetics practitioner, I also use the physical body as a vital tool for making diagnoses and gauging treatment. Many types of therapy treatment involve the person in treatment reclining on a couch, but in Core Energetics therapy, individuals are encouraged to stand upright and ground energy through their feet and legs. This position symbolizes an awareness of the present, making contact, and taking responsibility by standing on their own two feet.
A typical Session might include:
How many Sessions will you need?
Everyone's journey is different, however, if you wish to set a finite number of sessions from the beginning, I am pleased to give you an idea of what can be achieved in different time periods. Additionally, you can review the work regularly with me. This gives you time to experience how my approach can help you and develop an idea of how long you might need to achieve the outcome you want.
