James Hillman – Soul Work:
The world of Jungian inner work
In my experience I have found clients benefit greatly from this form of therapy. The role of the therapist in this approach is to act as: Interpreter, Educator, and Collaborator. In practice the client is directed toward their individuality through expanding their knowledge of themselves. The dialog includes choice awareness, locating forgotten or avoided parts of the self, and a strong focus on human will.
Carl G. Jung hypothezised that the human psyche is divided into conscious and unconscious components. The ego is both known to the individual and unknown to them. Because of this, people potentially can behave with little or no awareness of their actions. In our work we attempt to demystify this process by exploring what is unconscious.
This shadow material is located through our dialog, your word choices, and recollections. Dreamwork, analysis of transference, active imagination, are sometimes used to bring new awareness to the role of the unconscious. The persona, The collective unconsciousness & imagination, are also used in creative ways to aid in our work toward your individuation.

Human Potential Movement
CBT – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
In my experience, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) has shown itself effective for long lasting relief or management from the symptoms of the following:
- SOCIAL ANXIETY
- SOCIAL PHOBIA
- PANIC ATTACKS
- ESTEEM ISSUES
- ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION
- INTERNET ADDICTION
- SEX ADDICTION
- IDENTITY ISSUES
Six common thinking traps:
- All-or-nothing thinking: You view situations in black or white terms that are absolute
- Over-generalization: You view one negative event as evidence of problems never ending
- Discounting the positives: You insist that your accomplishments or positives events don’t exist
- Emotional reasoning: You reason from how you feel, rather then what you think
- Labeling: Rather then admitting your mistakes you label yourself a fool, failure, loser, fat, broken, or tortured.
- Projection: assuming people around you think negative of you.In addition to using CBT in my practice and in keeping with the latest research; mindfulness therapy is used regularly. Should you wish to engage in mindfulness practice you will become keenly aware of the present moment. You will learn tools to slow down the present and get a stronger awareness on what your process is, and eventually this self awareness will assist in your self governance over your issues. Mindfulness is also been shown to be effective in giving you greater control over your physical body, and increase your emotional intelligence.
