In addition to more traditional sessions, I offer two different services, Guided Focusing sessions andDialogue Facilitation.
Focusing : Focusing is a powerful way of supporting decision making, deepening relationships, being able to take action, getting past stuck places in life. It encourages and guides people in listening to their bodily sensed meaning and wisdom that often gets passed over as insignificant or confusing. Often these places hold the key to stopping recurring patterns, and making better decisions. This process was developed out of research that looked at what actually led people change in psychotherapy. It is a form of listening deeply to one's own sense of life issues. The name refers to the clarity that comes as something fuzzy becomes clear like a blurry image coming into sharper focus. Sometimes having guided Focusing sessions may be what a person needs in order to get the clarity they wish around a decision or a situation. If you would like to get more information about Focusing feel free to give me a call or check out focusing.org.
Dialogue Facilitation : At times we all need support in having an important conversation or solving a seemingly intractable problem with people important to us. This may be a partner, a sibling, a parent or even a coworker. We can have facilitated dialogue meetings, specifically geared to areas in your life where communication has become particularly painful, where getting the support of a third party can shift things. In these meetings the focus is on facilitating conditions for each person to be heard and understood and developing action steps. My practice is informed by restorative practices and Imago relationship theory and practice.
