Your problems do not define you, and crises are temporary in nature. Separating yourself from your crisis enables you to better understand and overcome your situation.

How we help:
Transpersonal Counselling

Transpersonal Counselling provides psychological support in a holistic way.

This way includes the body, mind and spirit and uses all types of therapies. TPC takes into consideration that individuals have their own paths in life, all being unique, at the same time that takes into consideration that we are all interconnected.

Focusing Oriented Dialogue

How we feel, both emotionally and physically can shine a light on difficulties, opinions and traumas.

Drawing attention to the body itself can illuminate how we feel about a given issue, or something we are unwilling to face. Through Focusing on our feelings and our body as a whole we can get back in touch with the felt sense. This sense represents memories and parts of us that have been traumatised, forgotten, suppressed and or neglected.

Empathic Listening

Empathic listening is to hear another person while holding them in high regard at the same time that we are non-judgemental (to them and us).

This stance provides a safe space to the other person so they can be themselves without the need to tailor themselves to you. This unconditional listening frees them to share and reflect openly on their experiences, thus gaining further self-insight.

Sandplay Therapy

Sandplay is a process by which the person, given a safe place, recreates scenarios (in the sand tray) where his/ hers imagination takes form.

This is done using miniature figures and the sand itself. This process allows for a fast access to parts of the mind that otherwise would remain hidden to the conscious and active in our day to day lives.

Sandplay was developed by Swiss Jungian Analyst Dora Kalff who can be watched working with children in YouTube.

Sandplay is for all ages, easy to engage with, uses the senses, allows for the imagination to unfold and shortens the counselling process; making it more efficient a less costly.
