Relationship Counselling Point Chevalier - Auckland
Relationship Counselling Point Chevalier - Auckland:
I have lived and worked in many different cultures and enjoy working with people and couples from all over the world. I am LGBTQI+ friendly. I encourage my clients to work at their own pace and in the most natural way that suits them.
I work with individuals, couples and families, listening to the feelings and needs to get to the heart of the matter.
My work combines Person-Centred listening for that which has meaning for the client and Focusing-Oriented, how meaning is experienced in the body. This way change often happens safely, without willingness and curiosity rather than struggle and effort and in surprising, enlivening ways.
For couples I often use Gottman style assessment to help plan the sessions and structure experiences around learning to communicate more openly with your partner as well as more spontaneous therapeutic work which is particular to each couple.
I have the Gottman Level 2 training and have three days training in Presence Oriented Relationship Training (PORT) with the Relate group of therapists led by Steven Dromgool.
I have many years experience of working with people with Nonviolent Communication and use this in all my work to mediate between individuals and between different parts individuals experience inside themselves.
If needed we can pay attention to broad cultural contexts and the specific norms each family has. My work is guided and influenced by Internal Family Systems and Emotion Focused Therapy but always personal to individuals who come to work with me.
I begin working with you with a meeting where we get to know each other, you can tell me what you would like to get from our work together and I can explain more about how I will be supporting you. It’s a time to ask questions and get some clarity on anything which is holding you back.
I offer free 10 minute calls to people unsure if this way of working will be a good fit for them and for any questions about all of the above.
