Most people experience difficulties at some stage of their life, such as overwhelming distress, feeling of ‘stuckness’ or lack of meaningfulness. Thoughts and feelings can be difficult to identify alone and come to terms with alone. Talking to a therapist in a confidential and supportive environment is a space to understand and address your difficulties. My view is that the role of the therapist is to explore with the client their core beliefs, in order to identify their feelings of ‘stuckness’ and relationship patterns.

If you are feeling stuck – unsure, overwhelmed or confused about the choices you have made, and your life right now, therapy can help. Give yourself space, to breathe, slow down and explore what patterns might be in operation out of awareness. You may be feeling that you are surviving, not thriving and that life is difficult to navigate. Sometimes painful experiences from the past can get in the way of fully responding to what happens in the present. Working together we will explore how you make sense of the world you are in and let go of what might be keeping you stuck and holding you back.

Core Process is an integrative therapy that engages with all forms of suffering. It works with body and mind, meeting how and where we are in each moment. By listening to our inner sense, we begin to see where we are stuck. This can empower us to make new choices about how we are living, to reside more often in our truth. This in turn brings us closer with the creation of meaning in our lives and connects us with a greater sense of our authenticity and freedom.
