I work with people on a weekly basis.
We will generally start with me getting to know a bit about your history—your family; your childhood; the cultures and communities you are part of; your experiences in work, relationships, play; the effect that living in this world has had on you; and anything else that you believe is important for me to know at the outset about who you are.
Once I have some of this background information, you will take the lead in our sessions, bringing forward what is most present for you when we meet. I will listen to you with all my faculties, and I will share with you what comes to me when you speak.
We will pay attention to your inner world, the outside world we live in, and the interplay between the two. I believe that our lives are deeply shaped by both, and what our conscious and unconscious does with it all.
I aim to co-create a space for honest, brave, and free inquiry, where you can explore and honour your experiences, and with another person, make sense from them. To do this, it’s important that anything at all can be discussed in our conversations, and that all of your feelings in their full complexity are welcome—your fear, your anger, your shame, your joy.
I take you and this work seriously and ask the same of you—which certainly doesn’t mean that our time together will be humourless. It simply means that what you bring—all that you bring—is important and will be treated that way.
