Transpersonal counselling for people who don’t fit in
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”rumi
Imagine that you are looking in a mirror that is dirty and maybe has cracks in it. The image looking back at you will be a distorted version of you. If you believe that what you see is the real you, this will impact how you are in the world and how you connect with the people around you.
Discover and accept the whole of you
I hear the expression “Just be you” so many times, but this is not an easy thing to do for many humans. In fact, from the moment we are born, without even realising it, we get bombarded with conditional messages about how we should be: gender norms, beauty and performance expectations, family, cultural, and spiritual beliefs. Therefore the person you are today is a result of all your unique life experiences. Some of these experiences might have been beautiful and supportive, some quite painful and scarring. And they helped you develop deep buried beliefs about yourself, the world, and what love is or what is not; think of them as the dirt or cracks in the mirror.
Fall in love with your imperfections
Throughout your life, various parts of yourself have developed to help you deal with these experiences. However, these parts will have different and sometimes contradictory beliefs and “wants” about life and are hiding underneath your challenges. They have formed at various stages in your life and have their own story to tell. I will give you a safe and nurturing space to help you understand how they developed and allow their stories to unfold in a way that feels right for you. I will be by your side as you begin to clean your mirror and discover your true self.
I believe that your struggles and challenges are not diseases that need curing but are clues about something trying to emerge in your life
The therapy model I use is Psychosynthesis, a transpersonal psychology model created by the Italian psychiatrist Roberto Assagioli. Psychosynthesis is a beautiful blend of psychology and un-dogmatic spirituality. I look at the human journey from two perspectives. A human being is a Soul on a journey of Self-discovery with a unique purpose and meaning in this life. A human being has challenges and struggles in her life to overcome so that she can fulfil that purpose. I see my role as a guide to help you explore your challenges and discover that purpose.
Our work will be more long-term and in-depth. We will explore your struggles to get to the root of what is causing them. I use a neurodiverse and intersectional framework holding the belief that every person is unique. Furthermore, I use a holistic view that includes the connection between the mind, body and feelings. My work is intuitive, and apart from talking therapy, I might use creative techniques, meditation and energy therapy to help you explore your challenges and inner world.
