All living beings have a natural inner drive to transform and evolve. Just as the seed contains all that it needs to grow into a whole fruit-bearing tree, or as the caterpillar takes itself trough the painful process of metamorphosis so it can spread its wings as a butterfly, so does every human being already own the capacity to manifest its full potential in this life.
However, at times, we might find ourselves lost, or stuck. Even though we can't really put our finger on it, there's a deep feeling that something's missing from our lives. Perhaps our relationships aren't going the way we'd like them to, or our work lacks meaning. Inner work is a deep process that aims to bring you closer to your inner wholeness. In this process we work on dismantling the beliefs and traumas that are holding you back, finding what truly gives you meaning, and inhabiting your life more (joy)fully.
How does it work?
Inner work is a form of psycho-spiritual coaching that aims to answer deeper questions about who you are, support your healing, and catalyse transformation. It's a deep dive into the unconscious in order to resurface the hidden gems of your character, and find the wholeness that already exists within you.
This is a co-creative process. Much like regular coaching, we will work on shaping meaningful goals and clearing your path towards achieving them by working with your beliefs, emotions, the nervous system and the body. Throughout our sessions, we may use a few different approaches, including belief work, interactive guided meditation, creative imagination, dream analysis, trauma work, storytelling, and psycho-education. I will hold you accountable throughout, and may give you exercises to do in between sessions in order to deepen our work. My aim is to support you in connecting on a more profound level to yourself, so that you can live life in alignment with your purpose.
*While this type of coaching has many therapeutic elements to it, it isn't and shouldn't be considered a substitute for psychotherapy. Our work will focus on bringing you more fully into the present by accepting the past and orienting towards achieving meaningful goals in your future. I cannot offer diagnosis or treatment for pathologies, but I would be happy to refer you to appropriate specialists.
** I offer concessions on a case-by-case basis - please get in touch before booking and we can discuss a rate that suits your financial situation.
“One should never think that man can reach perfection, he can only aim at completion – not to be perfect but to be complete. That would be the necessity and the indispensable condition if there were any question of perfection at all. For how can you perfect a thing if it is not complete?"
- Carl Jung
“In order to become whole we must try, in a long process, to discover our own personal truth, a truth that may cause pain before giving us a new sphere of freedom. If we choose instead to content ourselves with intellectual ‘wisdom’, we will remain in the sphere of illusion and self deception.”
- Alice Miller
