The Shape of a Private Session...what happens. Duration is 90 mins.
Some people come with specific questions or issues. Some have a more undefined sense something is not right. Some are just curious. How it is you come directs whether a goal is set or not.
Just as dreams can reflect important aspects of the self and be doorways into your unconscious, so can images and shapes that you make or attract you.
Initially through talking and checking in with what is happening for you, an aspect of your life will come to the fore. While this is happening an art process will come to mind that offers a way to explore whatever has ( or hasn't!) arisen in our conversation. I describe the process to you and invite you to engage with it. It might involve crayons, paint, texta, collage, clay or something else! If it doesn't appeal there are many other processes to choose from.
As you explore, play, create I sit with you and we might talk a little during that time or not. Mostly it is best to allow the creative process to absorb you and keep talk to a minimum.
When you are ready...usually the art process takes about 20 mins..I ask you questions about what you've created which draw out any associations you may have or an emotional hot spot in the work. In this way we go deeper and often something quite surprising will arise that your conscious mind wasn't aware of, more surprising than if a session was only relying on words. Hidden aspects can be revealed.
Your own answers are within you so I am there to help you bring them to the fore. There is never any forcing, imposing, insistence, or analysis.
There can be releases just through the power of expression particularly when something has been pushed out of consciousness. At other times unravelling a conundrum or a set of unhelpful beliefs clears energy that is unknowingly tied up. All situations, people and sessions are different but the same in that self reflection helps to keep us closer to our truth, helps us drop unhealthy beliefs that can also affect our physical health and keep us from growing and deepening.
At the end of a session I might suggest processes you can do at home and we might also talk about you committing to a set of sessions in order to settle into the process and follow through to attain a goal you have.
A session is $ 100 or if you commit to a set, the costs are reduced.
