Counselling, Psychotherapy & Neuropsychotherapy for Individuals
Neuropsychotherapy and Neuropsychoanalysis are talk-based forms of therapy based on the assumption that our brains and neural connections are plastic and thus, can be changed during the psychotherapeutic process. Often, past losses, wounds, and traumas are stored in our bodies and brains leading us to maintain difficult patterns of behaviour and thoughts and feelings that keep us stuck, leading to depression, anxiety and other forms of suffering.
Neuropsychotherapy integrates the physiological and psychological so that a fully holistic form of healing can occur. This process is done by experiencing feelings in real time while being mindful of the physiological reactions that may occur within the body. As clients put words to their emotional and physical feelings in a safe space, they bring unconscious automatic and uncontrolled thoughts, feelings, and behaviours into awareness. This results in more control over one’s thoughts and behaviours, a more highly developed sense of self-understanding and empathy, and enhanced emotional control or regulation.
