Counselling Point Chevalier - Auckland
I have lived and worked in many different cultures and enjoy working with people from all over the world. I am LGBTQI+ friendly. I encourage my clients to work at their own pace and in the most natural way that suits them.
When possible I facilitate clients to use their body sensations, memories and images in a creative form of self-discovery called Focusing (Gendlin). In my opinion, it is the safest, most effective and enjoyable form of therapy which is very useful for trauma or experiences of being stuck.
Clients I work with are often very surprised at their ability to use their body sensations and images in a session. I am excited to be starting to offer Brainspotting to my clients, this is the work of David Grand which uses points in the visual field to help access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain, I believe I am the only person offering this in Auckland right now, though it is widely used internationally.
Individuals, couples and families
I work with individuals, couples and families, listening to the feelings and needs to get to the heart of the matter.
My work combines Person-Centred listening for that which has meaning for the client and Focusing-Oriented, how meaning is experienced in the body. This way change often happens safely, without willingness and curiosity rather than struggle and effort and in surprising, enlivening ways.
For couples I often use Gottman style assessment to help plan the sessions and structure experiences around learning to communicate more openly with your partner as well as more spontaneous therapeutic work which is particular to each couple.
I have many years experience of working with people with Nonviolent Communication and use this in all my work to mediate between individuals and between different parts individuals experience inside themselves.
I work with small family groups paying particular attention to broad cultural contexts and the specific norms each family has. My work is guided and influenced by Internal Family Systems and Emotion Focused Therapy but always personal to individuals who come to work with me.
I begin working with people with a meeting where we get to know each other, you can tell me what you would like to get from our work together and I can explain more about how I will be supporting you. It’s a time to ask questions and get some clarity on anything which is holding you back.
I offer free 10 minute calls to people unsure if this way of working will be a good fit for them and for any questions about all of the above.
