Currently in my practice I use an evidenced based type of therapy that has been embraced for years. Compassion based therapy provides the client with a total acceptance and validation for their well being. People who experience them may struggle to feel relieved, reassured or safe. Research suggests that a specialized affect regulation system (or systems) underpins feelings of reassurance, safeness and well being. It is believed to have evolved with attachment and in particular, the ability to register and respond with calming and a sense of well being to being cared for.
This mistrust can often create many relational issues throughout our lives. One of the key components of Compassion Therapy is to use compassionate mind training to help people develop and work with experiences of inner warmth, safe and soothing, compassion and self compassion.
I can offer you a non judgmental, caring and accepting environment that I feel will improve your ability to trust once again. I look forward to meeting with you and starting your healing process together. Presently I am also offering Christian Counseling for those who use their faith as a support system.
