In-Harmony Counselling & Equine Assisted Therapy, believe that a welcoming, safe, and supportive therapeutic environment is the key to emotional healing, wellbeing, and personal growth. We will work together in the ‘here and now’ in order to make sense of whatever immediate problem or enduring issues you bring and how they are impacted by your past. When facing uncertainty, uncontrollability, and unpredictability or experiencing a lack of direction, crisis, impasse, or other stressful life situation, my hope is you will not only gain clarity and insight but know you have been understood in the context of your history, gender, sexuality, and culture. I will be genuinely curious about who you are, how you came to be this way, what is troubling you, and what makes you thrive.
“I value individual difference, honesty, integrity and connection, you will be supported in finding your own path in making sense of whatever made you seek counselling as I strongly believe that all individuals have the ability to become empowered in finding their own answers. I know that I am not a fixer, and I don’t have all the answers, although I might have a suggestion or two. I know that I am OK to sit with people in chaos. I can tolerate stuckness, and I am not afraid to be afraid, nor walk alongside you into an unknown place.” I will endeavour to work In Harmony with you at all times.
“You can’t really know where you are going until you know where you have been”
Covid-19 StatementApril 2020
It comes down to the three C’s: control, connectedness, and competency. These are fundamental elements of mental health in humans, and the lockdown heavily impacts all three. The entire pandemic — its sudden descent, the way it’s changed our routines — shakes our sense of control. Social distancing takes away our connectedness. While technology and social media give us the ability to connect verbally, we lose physical touch. We as humans have an evolutionary need to connect. Finally, we can’t do what we usually do to feel competent, effective, and instrumental in our own lives: We can’t plan, focus, or manage our emotions. Whatever your concern, we are here to help, being In-Harmony is our goal, please get in touch.
