Generally we start in a supportive, problem solving structured treatment and increasingly engage in understanding and developing inner strengths via a more psychodynamic psychotherapy.
is an approach for someone facing on-going mental health challenges. We work on finding meaning in your life by meeting the issues as they present themselves.
Clients with symptoms of social isolation, depression, acute states of mood swings are welcome. Associated flights of ideas, low concentration abilities, feelings of lack of recognition from others, self-medications and self-reproach are addressed. Together we begin and continue to learn about the self and how best to live, given who you are and what is important to you.
If you are exhausted by how brave you must be to survive day to day – you will find support and understanding to improve the quality of your life.
Clients who identify with schizophrenia and the associated experiences of voice hearing and extreme fears are helped to cope, accept and create opportunity to shift the meaning of this gift to better suit their needs. What are you doing to stay tethered to this world?
Generally, what is your mission in this life? Who is your private self and the self the world knows? How do people love you? Do you love?
