Have you tried everything to find answers or a way to make your life better, yet you still feel lonely, anxious or depressed or withdrawn?

 

Often, unresolved experiences including grief, trauma, anxiety, abuse, disappointments … can contribute to your feeling miserable, as you have taken on the stories and self-beliefs and thoughts that are now unhelpful to you.

"One of your greatest strengths is that of empathy which allows you to be connected with your client and to guide gently in the safe space that you create, towards the solution that will allow them to maximise themselves.

 

What you have to offer is unique and so filled with heart energy."​ Barbara

Trauma, and/or grief, is approached gently

A note regarding work with trauma ... trauma must be approached gently.
The same with grief.

Other processes are only used to change thought patterns and habits when the client is ready, especially with working with children. No-one is ever forced to remember or re-live trauma.

My work is person-centred, and I create a safe space so that the child or person can remember in their own time, and process the trauma safely and gently.
Only then can we do processes to help change unhelpful thoughts. These can include a mixture of creative processes, Mindfulness, CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), and ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy) processes. Each client is an individual.
