WHAT IS GUIDED INTROSPECTION?
Guided Introspection is for anyone who has a desire to reframe how they see their lives and who is in control of it.
Having a skilled and compassionate guide to help you uncover the origins of your worries, sadness and frustrations, often lets you see that you don’t need to be trapped by them.
Once you’ve taken this first step and gained a better understanding of yourself and the problems you struggle with, it’s possible to start work on how to do things differently.
Guided Introspection is different to therapy.
Therapy seeks to treat complex mental health difficulties and or past traumas. Guided Introspection steps away from the idea that professionals possess all the answers and invites you to become your own best healer through education and self-awareness.
In my work with individuals and groups, I draw on my own experience of healing and transformation, along with evidence-based insights from psychology and neuroscience, to mindfulness and communication techniques, to cultivate collaborative and meaningful change.
To develop awareness and learn new skills, we need compassionate role models, safe opportunities to explore and to practice – that’s where I come in.
DO YOU NEED HELP WITH
• Honouring your wants and needs
• Communicating courageously
• Setting boundaries
• Healthy relationships
• Confidence and self-esteem
• Reframing your story
The areas listed above represent common problems that I have substantial experience in. Of course, when we first chat, we’ll discuss the challenges as you see them and the options available to best meet your needs. Where your requirements are beyond my areas of expertise, I am able to signpost and make alternative suggestions to support your preferred future.
I firmly believe that we are our own best healers, but sometimes we need a skilled and compassionate guide to help shine a light on opportunities for change and new ways of being.
To cultivate change, we must first become aware of what the problem is and how it’s being maintained. When we acquire insight, we gain access to ‘new’ information about ourselves, our circumstances and the choices that we are making. It’s this that supports self-understanding and provides the opportunity to choose differently, if we want to!
Being aware doesn’t necessarily mean well equipped. Where do we develop the knowledge and skills to live life well? We only know what we know, but that doesn’t mean it’s what’s helpful or healthy. Once we have insight on our side, I work with people to upgrade their attitudes and develop more productive and positive responses to dealing with life’s inevitable challenges.
Change is the by-product of continual learning, reflection, conscious and committed action. In the initial stages of change, experiencing discomfort is natural, along with feelings of hope and excitement for the future. Change should not be prescribed by others, only determined and pursued by you, in service of the life that you choose to lead!
