Inside Out Therapy

Inside Out Therapy for individuals and couples is about restoring your connection with yourself, your partner, and life.
Most of our difficulties come from things that happen in relationships, whether our first relationships with caregivers, later relationships with friends, lovers etc. Therefore, the way to repair the ruptures is through relationships.
When there have been ruptures, and abuse/trauma has been part of someone’s life, relationships become extremely difficult to hold and trust. Working in a relationship with you is how we attend to your needs and how you can begin to heal. The one-to-one therapeutic relationship is the vehicle for transformation and change to happen.

Individual Therapy:

We all have a story that makes sense to our experiences, but the problem is when we get stuck in parts of the story and repeat over and over behaviours that keep us feeling sad, alone, afraid or angry.
Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy explores how our story and communication with others are based on our relationship with ourselves and the past.
It works by:
• Listening to our stories and challenging maladaptive decisions that have been made that have blocked our awareness, intimacy and spontaneity
• Inviting healthy contact through the therapeutic relationship
• Challenging discounts and offering new frames of reference to empower people to think for themselves
• Making contact and working with the wounded inner child is part of good psychotherapy for healing the past and recovering from the stuckness that can show itself today in many different ways.
• Challenging abusive internal inner voices and
• Encouraging the integration of new ways of thinking and feeling

I like what the (HIPC) Humanistic Integrative Psychotherapy college says:

“Humanistic Integrative Psychotherapy relies upon the importance of the relationship between the therapist and client to enable mind, body, feeling, and soul to come together as a whole. The client and the therapist are actively engaged in shaping the processes of assessing the client’s problems or issues, working out what will happen in Therapy and evaluating the outcomes. Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapists believe in the client’s ability to take responsibility for themselves, their choices, and their capacity to fulfil their talents. The psychotherapist works with the client to realise these potentials. Humanistic and Integrative psychotherapists consider how the external world affects the client and will explore the significance of the social, cultural and political experience.”

Couples Therapy:

“Connection is the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard and valued; when they can give and receive without judgement; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”

There is always a honeymoon period in a relationship where when you feel in love, the world is a beautiful colour, you feel good about yourself and eat and sleep better than you might do today, and then life happens, and you realise that love is work. To repair your relationship and rebuild the loving connection that was once there, we work to develop greater intimacy and understanding between you.
