IFS Psychotherapy and Supervision, EMDR and Counsellor CPD in Honiton
As a BACP Senior-Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist, Supervisor and EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner, and Certified IFS Therapist, I offer IFS psychotherapy, IFS supervision, counselling supervision, EMDR and counsellor CPD in Honiton, Devon (less than 20 miles from Exeter). I have experience of working with many issues in a variety of ways. Whether we use IFS, EMDR, EFT, mostly "talking therapy" or a combination of approaches will depend on preference, aptitude and suitability for the presenting issues. I have experience working with the following issues (in alphabetical order):
We all face challenges at various times in life. These may prevent our growth or throw us back into ways of behaving that don't seem true to ourselves. I am trained to help you remove blocks to growth and fulfilment as we work together to your agenda. Counselling can be a therapeutic and empowering experience in which you will let go of memories, beliefs and behaviours that do not serve you and discover and use your inner resources, experiment and develop new ways of coping and being in the world.
Why choose me as your psychotherapist
An assessment process will form part of the initial sessions of therapy, during which time we will discuss your preferences, goals, symptoms, history and current circumstances. Together we will determine as best we can an approach to take to meet your goals. This will be reviewed regularly and adjusted accordingly. If necessary, I have colleagues to whom I can refer clients for other forms of therapy.
Although I will be active in the therapy, as client so will you be. One of my favourite quotes regarding how (in particular) longer-term, in-depth psychotherapy works comes from Ron Kurtz in Body-Centered Psychotherapy: The Hakomi Method Updated Edition, p. 25:
"Psychotherapy is healing and healing only happens to living organisms.
You can fix a car or a bookcase, you can repair a television set or a computer--
but you don't heal them. And they don't heal themselves. Only living systems heal;
they don't get fixed or repaired or anything like that. An MD can set a fracture,
but he cannot heal it. He must wait and see if it will heal. He can help, but he cannot heal.
Healing is an act of self-recreation. One being cannot heal another.
The other can only help or hinder. The organicity principle places the locus of healing
and control within the client and the client-therapist relationship. The client's growth
and unfolding, his or her answers and resolutions, completions and new directions,
are all within. The therapist is there to help manage the process through which the
client goes there and gets them."
Also, part of my role as a psychotherapist is to make myself obsolete as I assist clients to self-heal and find their own inner resources for therapy and for life beyond therapy. If this is of interest, you might like to read a short reflective article I wrote which was published in Therapy Today, April 2010, pp. 30-31, called DIY Therapy.
