About Active Healing Counselling
Counselling is a gentle form of psychological healing based on a collaborative dialogue. I provide a safe and warm environment for self-exploration, approaching life’s troubles in a spirit of curiosity and compassion. My methods synthesise Eastern wisdom traditions with humanistic psychology to help you find your own way to a more fulfilling life.
I help couples find a new approach to intimate relationship, the path of conscious love. The difficult challenges that sometimes accompany relationships can themselves be utilised to call forth our deepest strengths and resources. In this respect a qualified guide can show us where to look but not necessarily tell us what to see. I assist couples in creating a fertile atmosphere in their relationship for their own innate wisdom to arise and lead them forward.
