support moving through developmental challenges
Knowing freedom from psychic dependencies and stuck pattern
Growing towards what really matters
Moving through addiction, grief and depression, codependency.
Untangling knots in our psyche and soma can be a confusing and difficult process. We all, myself included need help to grow as human beings and sometimes it can help to take a fresh look at prevailing challenges.
I offer therapeutic and mentoring service for people wanting freedom from addiction behaviours, grief, depression, anxiety, and self-limitation cycles. I enjoy working with people around boundaries, personal freedom and integrity.
My approach is called psycho-motor therapy. It means tracking and supporting the movement of the mind through the body and relational field. This allows for healing, growth and fulfilled expression of the human soul or body/mind/will system.
I use this approach to help people address, integrate and transcend psychic dependencies like addiction, stuck thinking and behaviour patterns and clear the way for the natural growth of their soul (body/mind/will system).
Ultimately it is a METHOD for growing and expressing integration or wholeness of the body/mind/will system.
I have a Graduate diploma in gestalt therapy, and am currently completing a masters degree in the same.
More than anything my qualification comes from personal experience moving through drug and alcohol addiction, bulemia, shame, grief and depression. I know how painful it can be to be in the grip of self-damaging cycles and my heart wants to help others move through these issues.
If you would like to talk more about your needs, where you’re at and what you’d like help with, feel free to get in touch and we can start a conversation about how I might be able to help you.
What is the growth of the soul to me?
IT IS ADDRESSING THE UNIQUE DEVELOPMENTAL NEED REFLECTED IN my CURRENT LIFE SITUATION AND what i notice happening in my Psycho-Motor ENERGY BODY.
IT IS THE JOURNEY OF ANSWERING THE QUESTION:
HOW DO I USE THIS MOMENT TO MAKE DEEPER CONTACT WITH WHAT TRULY MATTERS?
I currently know it as 12 things, subject to change and revision:
- Discovering what truly matters
- Purifying the heart through the truthful word
- Feeling primary emotions
- Integreating the Body | mind | psuke
- Observing faithfully
- Reporting honestly
- Living creatively
- Investigating and taking responsibility for our own shadow
- Embracing vulnerability
- Resting and Letting go
- De-tensioning the nervous system
- Growing Godwards, Lovewards and Truthwards
When it comes to this soul work, this soul school, as my friend Josh calls it, I am both student and teacher. I am a flawed man, like any other, with some wisdom to share and plenty of work still to do. But the great thing is, it is a natural process.
We grow, like the trees, out of the darkness, and towards the light.
WANT TO GET SOME SUPPORT WITH YOUR SOUL GROWTH?
If my words resonate with you, feel free to get in touch with me. I am a certified gestalt therapist with a background in education and 40 years of life experience under my belt. I offer consulting/support sessions in what I call Natural Movement Therapy and Education. Basically it means supporting the latent, intuitive wisdom of the body|mind to naturally emerge. I take an eclectic approach, which means using the best from variety of systems: Christianity, Spending time in Nature, Gestalt therapy, somatic intelligence, prayer, emotional processes and creative expression. I work in the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane region of Australia.
An old teacher of mine at Interior Design school once said to us,
“To be successful in this business, you need to live, breathe, eat and shit this work”.
I quit the course that week.
I don’t know if i’ll ever be successful in business but there is a kind of work I do live, breathe, eat and shit.
That work is simply and nakedly, the growth of my soul.
