As a therapist, my role in working with high-achieving individuals is to be present; witness you as you are without judgment; dissolve your isolation; embody empathic understanding grounded in experience; assist you to gain the skills & perspective to overcome obstacles; support you through necessary change; guide you in reclaiming authenticity, joy, & creativity. Through our work in the synergistic process of Gestalt & Somatic Therapy, you will sense yourself becoming more deeply attuned to your body & feelings. From this heightened state of awareness, you will be supported in integrating repressed, disowned, parts of yourself.
Heart-centred therapy is a powerful experience. It provides a safe space to discover & identify the roots of trauma, suffering, & how your unintegrated past strains your present. Life’s ongoing challenges present opportunities for growth. In the therapeutic process, you are supported to transmute your pain into strength creating agency to reclaim vitality.
You know when you feel unfulfilled, stuck, & you can no longer cope alone, you desire & seek effective strategies for relief. Your crisis is a door, ready to be opened. Being at this threshold invokes fear & wonder, yet your pain is your path to liberation. The only way is to go through it. I welcome your contact to support you in taking your next steps.
En tant que thérapeute, mon rôle dans le travail avec les personnes très performantes est d'être présente ; de vous voir tel que vous êtes sans jugement ; de dissoudre votre isolement ; d'incarner une compréhension empathique basée sur l'expérience ; de vous aider à acquérir les compétences et la perspective nécessaires pour surmonter les obstacles ; de vous accompagner dans les changements nécessaires ; de vous guider pour retrouver l'authenticité, la joie et la créativité. Grâce à notre travail dans le processus synergique de la Gestalt et de la thérapie somatique, vous vous sentirez plus profondément en phase avec votre corps.
À partir de cet état de conscience accrue, vous serez aidé à intégrer des parties de vous-même refoulées et niées. La thérapie centrée sur le cœur est une expérience puissante. Elle offre un espace sûr pour découvrir et identifier les racines du traumatisme, de la souffrance et de la manière dont votre passé non intégré remet en question votre présent.
Les défis permanents de la vie offrent des opportunités de croissance. Le processus thérapeutique vous aide à transformer votre douleur en un agent créateur de force pour retrouver votre vitalité. Vous savez que vous ne pouvez plus vous débrouiller seul, et vous désirez et recherchez des stratégies efficaces pour vous soulager. J'attends votre contact.
