There are many different types of counselling from Person Centred to Transpersonal, to Psychodynamic to CBT ( used by the NHS) or an eclectic or “integrated” approach used by most counsellors.
Whatever type of counselling or therapy you decide to embark upon the results should be the same, a sense of transformation, energy and purpose. A life which is not restricted by anxieties, or fearful of the past, a life that allows you to follow your chosen path.
My experience in working with patients over the years is that the heart tends to rule the head and my approach reflects this, “It is the heart which needs to be healed not the head alone.” I notice that therapies which try to reframe life from an intellectual perspective are not always successful.
My core approach is in the transpersonal field, however I find that the Person Centred approach fits in with most patients needs and my homoeopathic approach too.
Person Centred means that I am guided by that persons needs at that moment in time.
How does this fit with homoeopathy?
I find that some patients, although feeling much better from their homoeopathic treatment need someone to talk to or be alongside them on their journey because they are seeking a deeper sense of self in their quest for their life’s purpose. Some people simply need more ongoing support because of their life situation and in some homoeopathy awakens a sense of spirituality which they want to explore.
I specialise in bereavement counselling. During this counselling I use homeopathic remedies which help the grieving process substantially and give the person a reason to move on far more quickly than with counselling alone.
Overall my approach is holistic gentle and Person Centred.
