"Truth resides in every human heart, and one has to search for it there, and be guided by truth as one sees it" - Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)


When we are caught up in the psychological arrest of a merciless inner critic and/or suffering inner child, our experience of the world is very limited and negative. Inner peace and joy seem somewhat evasive.

The adult is the experience of the present moment. It is our ability to take in our immediate surroundings as well as notice our inner sensations. It is also our ability to identify the range of choices we have at any time, and decide how to proceed. When we have a healthy adult headspace we are noting with neutrality everything around us and within us, and are respectfully assertive about how we would like to proceed; we are compassionate towards the inner child and even the inner critic, and we can healthily prioritise whatever is needed for our personal wellbeing, and experience peace, contentment and happiness.

Psychotherapeutic counselling is an opportunity to reflect on your journey thus far, to explore your disordered thoughts and feelings, and to choose a healthier path on which to continue your journey.
