Welcome to my Integrated Therapy & Coaching Services
It is great to meet you, and welcome to my website. I work with clients on a wide variety of topics, mainly using the beautiful and powerful methodology of Internal Family Systems integrated with Somatic Experiencing®. I also offer Integral Coaching® and weave in coaching tools and skills to serve my clients deeply as required.
If you would like to have a free chat to see how I might be able to support you, I would be delighted to meet with you and see how I can help you move towards greater freedom, enjoyment and integration in your life.
Here is a 5 minutes intro video where I talk a little bit about how I came to do the work I am doing and how I can help you.
I also talk briefly about how I integrate Internal Family Systems with the two other modalities of Somatic Experiencing® and Integral Coaching®.
Areas of Expertise
Internal Family Systems, Somatic Experiencing® & Integral Coaching®
I help my clients transform a wide variety of topics into greater experiences of calm, clarity, compassion, creativity, confidence and more. Some of the topics my clients work with are:
Anxiety or Overwhelm in current life situation
Relationship problems or Communication issues that feel stuck
Depression or Burnout
Low self-worth and the Desire for Personal growth
Stress - at Work or Personally
Pain Conditions or Chronic Conditions with no obvious physical cause or with a physical cause, but pain might be chronic or healing delayed. Parts can play a big role in these conditions.
People pleasing and the Desire to be better able to set Boundaries or be more Authentic
Phobias and obsessions
Difficulties at work
Issues from the past and Grief
Dental Phobias and Dental Anxiety
I recognize and work with multiplicity of mind, and I support my clients to get to know their "inner family system" of parts or subpersonalities. This is deeply transformative and healing work that also opens up for more Self energy to emerge in their system. Self energy is what and who we are at our core, and it is recognized by its unique qualities of inner calm, compassion, curiosity and more.
Our inner parts can show themselves in a number of ways, from somatic sensations to emotions to thoughts to impulses or movements in the body. And as my clients get to know their parts they will typically understand more clearly why they behave the way they do or think the way they do in various life situations. And as parts or subpersonalities are connected with and understood, they can release some of their burdens they often carry, which allows for a more inner harmonies system to emerge.
The main feedback I get from my client is how this work actually allows for the baseline of well-being to go up over time, meaning they get to relax and enjoy their lives more fully with less inner conflict and stress.
Integrating the powerful methodology and wisdom of Somatic Experiencing® with Internal Family Systems also allows for the nervous system to regulate more deeply and contributes to increased resolution and transformation of traumas stored in the body.
I offer sessions for individuals, and with my background in Integral Coaching®, I am also keen to supply my clients with various ways of developing capacities in their lives and topics when required. This can take the form of identifying one or two capacities for clients to work with in between sessions, and it can be something for clients to work on that we agree verbally or it can sometimes take the form of a written practice.
