WITH STEVE ALTMAN
I am a psychosynthesis therapist - a fully accredited member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy.
After years of experience in respite care, I offer a safe space to assist you with a range of issues, including anxiety, depression, loneliness, suicidal thoughts, low self-esteem, low confidence and anger management.
Dream work and finding inner strength through nature are also approaches that I bring to our sessions, in addition to simply being present with you as a safe space to reconnect with your true voice of inner knowing. Your authenticity.
I often find sessions can be intuitive from both sides. Simply trusting what comes up as we go along and allowing insights to spontaneously arise can bring awareness and light to what was previously hidden in the shadows.
THEMES WE EXPLORE INCLUDE
How is the way you interact with people in your childhood still impacting your life now?
What is it that brings you joy?
How would you like to improve your relationship with yourself and others?
How attuned are you currently to your spiritual side?
THERAPY IS A PROCESS OF REMEMBERING WHO YOU ARE
A DISENTANGLING FROM LIFE'S CONDITIONING
SO THAT YOU CAN BEGIN TO TRUST YOUR OWN WAY OF SEEING THE WORLD
WHAT IS PSYCHOTHERAPY?
Psychosynthesis is grounded in traditional psychology and recognises that at some point we all suffer and that through that suffering we can grow into deeper, wiser people. By making meaning of our suffering we can begin to express ourselves more fully and authentically.
This psychological approach focuses on understanding who you are most essentially and when connected with that, how would you choose to express that in your work, in your relationships and the choices that you make in your life. It is a developmental approach which can help guide you towards understanding personal motivation and purpose.
All the parts of the person are valued and included: the unconscious, the past history, the here and now and the dreams and visions.
Sometimes also, someone may never have received good listening and appreciation of who they really are, and the forming of a relationship with the therapist over the course of treatment, can repair and heal deeply within, as the client feels loved and honoured, and truly heard and seen.
