I know that taking the first step to begin therapy is not easy but it’s reassuring to know that progress is possible.
One of the first questions that my clients ask when seeking counseling is “Will I really see change and can it be lasting”?
My own curiosity about which methods promote enduring change has given me enthusiasm for what are now called the “power therapies” such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Re-Processing), EFT ( Emotional Freedom Technique), TAT (Tapas Acupressure Technique) to name a few.
These therapies are powerful because they work efficiently and thoroughly. Such advances do for therapy what the laser has done for medicine.
However, it is important to note that regardless of a therapist’s tools, or their theraputic orientation, it is the relationship with the client that heals.
So, my approach is to facilitate healing by maintaining a safe and nurturing relationship while working with the “mind-body” interactions. It is rewarding to witness the relief which flows as clients move through overwhelming emotions and dissolve limiting beliefs.
Once grounding has been restored and the barriers which block growth have been diminished, or eliminated, then true self-actualization can occur.
