Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy encompasses a wide variety of humanistic and psychoanalytic approaches, theories and practices. Work may be with individuals, couples, families or groups. These broadly related, typically interactive approaches may engage the modalities of thought, feeling and spirituality. Enhancement of insight and awareness are sought and encouraged. The focus is upon the discovery of meaning through exposing patterns, personal metaphors, myths and stories with a view to individuals coming to a fuller comprehension of fundamental questions of identity, relationship and direction. Life may then be lived more zestfully and authentically (more in touch with one's self). KAYE BARR
