My philosophy Solutions for Emotional Connection

One of the most devastating experiences for people, if not THE most devastating, is to feel disconnected from those around them and/or from themselves. Being alone, feeling alone even when you’re around people is very painful. I collaborate with you to give you an experience of emotional connection and assist you to identify both what prevents that for yourself and in your relationship and what you can do to reconnect. You will receive practical tools and skills to deepen your emotional connection in your most important relationships and with yourself.

My approach

My approach is grounded in Emotionally Focused Therapy EFT. In a safe environment, I collaborate with you to find I see myself as a process consultant to assist and guide you to deeper understandings. collaborate with you to address matters in the following four areas:

  • Resolving repetitive arguments in your relationship and creating more intimacy,
  • Improving your mood and developing self management skills for depression, anxiety, anger and grief,
  • Getting past debilitating traumatic memories, and
  • Helping with the challenges of medium and long term addiction recovery

My training is up to date in the evidence based approaches of Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples and Individuals (EFT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for trauma.
