During initial sessions I gather information as to the nature of the problem and the outcome desired. Together we assess strengths, and then obstacles to be overcome, whether environmental, relational, emotional or physical. It can take a single session or a number of sessions. At this point I recommend specific therapeutic modalities to be used to support client(s) to attain their goals. For some, the process is slow and delicate, for others vigorous and brief, a place to come back to when life's crises inevitably occur. For all - an experience in discovering a larger life of Resilience and Reconnection.
As the "story" proceeds, it becomes possible for client(s) to experience new spaces opening in oneself as insights emerge, imagination unfolds and imprisoned emotions are released and expressed. A partnership develops into a supportive relationship that fosters a growing independence as the Self becomes more conscious of its own Needs Desires, and Capabilities.
Techniques to be utilized include deep listening, clarification, reflection, use of relaxation techniques, recognition of client strengths, emotional support, progress indicators, visualizations, body psychotherapy, gestalt, communication, and experiential exercises, hypnosis, new information, use of Myers-Briggs, games, stories, drawing activities, community outreach where indicated.
