So much criticism and judgement is learnt in childhood...
Because of this I like to work with people to let go of their inner critic whilst nurturing their inner child. This often creates a type of inner safety and security that previously may have been projected onto others. So rather than take responsibility for ourselves, we render ourselves vulnerable as we ask others and life in general, to make us feel better and reassure us of our worth. If you did 'x', I would get to feel 'y', if you were more loving, I would get to feel more loveable and special. We learn that we are loveable and worthwhile no matter how we are being treated and no matter what is going on in our lives. We become fortified!
This processing gives my clients the inner freedom they need to accept and love themselves more wholly. We learn to esteem from within and enjoy the emotional independence this gives us. This inner freedom allows clients to live more boldly and confidently without fear of 'getting it wrong', without shame and that often early learnt criticism.
I have extensive experience in working with:
I enjoy working with both men and women. I have found that the process can be quite different and the results freeing. I also enjoy working with couples. This work is done with a slightly longer consultation as there is often more ground to over.
