Personal Growth Therapy
You don't need to be sick or suffering you just need to have an inner yearning for more.
I have worked with personal development for over 20 years using Gestalt therapy, Energy Medicine and many other ancient wisdoms to help my clients (and myself) become fuller, livelier and more present human beings. I am skilled in mindfulness and understand from the inside out the many blocks to personal growth.
It is never too late to start working to release your true inner self and live a life of joy and contentment.
Personal Development is about working on our 'issues' and becoming a fuller expression of our true self. It is about regaining our energy and spontaneity through the process of integration ~ working through where we are blocked to regain parts of our-self that have been lost or damaged over the course of our lives. As we do this we gain access to the energy that was tied up in keeping things down while we 'held ourselves together' and as result feel freer and a greater sense of inner peace.
How did you get to be this way?
As we grow up parts of our self get stuck. Depending on the quality of our early relationships and the interaction of life events with our unique personality we can safely say that not many have had an ideal childhood or lives. As adaptive humans we developed strategies to cope with the negative things that may have happened to us over the course of our lives. Eventually, however, these strategies become redundant and start to get in the way of us moving forward.
What happened in the past matters, but what matters more now is how the past interferes with your present.
Many people worry that psychotherapy means regression to their childhood and blaming their mother for not being loving or their father for being too harsh, but that's not the way I work. The fact is what happened in the past does matter, but we can't go back and change that. However, we can look at how those things might be playing out in your life today, and thats where the real source of change lies.
By looking at what's happening in the here and now, (not necessarily regressing to the past), problems, conflicts and divided selves can be identified. Until you are aware of what's really going on inside you, you don't really have any power to do things differently.
We all have a natural urge to heal and grow. Personal growth isn't just about overcoming obstacles it's also about becoming more effective and free to live out our full potential.
