What is “Metaphysical” Counselling?
I’m often looked at with slight confusion when people hear this title, and, to be honest I would have done the same a few years back! After much deliberation though, I chose to keep the title, because for me it IS a different approach to counselling, to life even, and thats its strength.
So, let me explain…..’Metaphysical’ means to “go beyond the physical”, hence I am approaching your situation/issues not just from a mental & emotional point of view, but importantly also from a spiritual point of view. Mind, Body, Spirit is the important complete connection we often miss, and this approach allows all three to be considered in the process.
The work includes counselling in the traditional sense, so alongside the psychological approach and tools, I use various experiential techniques such as visualisation, mediations, etc along with some practical more down-to-earth tools. BUT – it goes deeper, in that it recognises the energy, the Spirit within us to support the process, to allow the root causes to be gently found and healed at mind, body and spirit level. This makes it an empowering process, because we are engaging all aspects of you and shining a light on what is required for you to heal, emotionally, physically & spiritually. To allow a life in flow, ease and an inner confidence.
So, when we say metaphysical counselling, we are talking about a unique, fluid, powerful approach to therapy, that takes us beyond our ‘thinking’ mind, to allow you to connect with your Inner Wisdom. This gains you increased clarity over what you need, what you need to heal, and recognise what has perhaps been contributing to your pain, your stresses….ultimately you are healing yourself at a deeper level, not just at the mind level, which brings lasting results.
This approach requires you to be willing to “do the work”, we’ll be uncovering deeper layers of beliefs, reactions and thinking, gently, with patience. I’ll be guiding and supporting you so you can find that level of courage to enquire within. All you need, is a willingness to explore so that we can bring about a level of acceptance and peace with what happened, or what is happening, and start to create long lasting shifts in ourselves, and ultimately in our lives.
