ASPIRE is an acronym for A Supportive Partner in Recovery, which I believe describes my approach well.
I specialize in supporting people to learn to learn to heal themselves. I am an Integrated Therapist which means I draw on various modalities of working, but my passion is for Internal Family Systems Therapy or IFS. I hold a Level 1 in specialized Internal Family Systems training from the IFS Institute.
Is ASPIRE for me? Yes if….
You are ready to do a deep dive into self awareness to free yourself from anxiety, depression, constant conflict, flat lining or other experiences that are making it hard for you to live in your own skin.
If the ways you’ve been trying to deal with a painful experience or history of loss or trauma have become unsustainable in your life.
If you have the courage and curiosity for this work and just need a trusted guide.
I work most with CPTSD (complex post traumatic Shock), histories of adverse experiences, intimate partner violence, behaviours of addiction, systems trauma (systems like dysfunctional families, social systems such as the child “protection” system, the justice systems for example).
