My inspiration – ‘We’re all just walking each other home” – Ram Dass
My motivation to be in this profession – Modern world has given us all the information we need right at our fingertips, and at the same time has separated us from the one thing that nurtures us, connection; connection to ourselves, our loved ones, and nature. We can find out what’s going on in another corner of the world within seconds, but our own hearts and minds remain puzzling. I have been lost trying to piece the puzzle of my life one piece at a time, and I can now say with gratitude that through the support of some very caring people in my life, I have been able to look through some of the haze and arrive at this juncture where I can offer some help and support to others that may be going through challenges of their own. Suffering is a human condition, and it is my belief that the only way through that suffering is along side each other.
My approach – I offer my counselling services through a non-pathological and non-diagnostic framework. I do not offer quick fixes and “tools”. I work from a person-centered and experiential approach as I follow you through your journey of self-discovery. You may come to me with a specific issue, e.g., anxiety, and almost always as we work through it you discover more about yourself. Therapy can be hard and rewarding. It requires time, patience, and commitment. Is this something that you need and are ready for? If yes, please contact me.
I can help you navigate following issues – Low motivation, low self esteem or self image issues, work conflict, life transitions, relationship issues, isolation, loneliness, burnout, feeling stuck, finding meaning/purpose, attaining and defining goals, dealing with loss, generally feeling down with no specific known cause, or, would like to work on self-improvement and discovery.
I use the following methods in my counselling practice – Person-centered, Gestalt, Existential, Somatic, and Coherence therapy.
