Mindfulness Based Psychotherapy supports clients in working with embodied sensations, bringing awareness to the body's subtle reactions and feeling tones, in the moment. This exploration of self is done in relationship and the therapist provides a supportive and confidential holding environment for the client to be deeply heard and seen.
This Buddhist based psychotherapeutic model understands that awareness is transformative. A core belief is that awareness allows the possibility of change and healing, so that suffering can be eased as we allow self acceptance and compassion to emerge.
Danielle believes that through becoming more intimately aware of ourselves, through the therapeutic relationship, we can become more familiar with our previously unrecognised process and behavioural patterning. This relational psychotherapy can create a change in how we experience ourselves, and our increase in awareness can potentially ease self critical thoughts, feelings and judgements. Embracing the unknown through embodied exploration, and connecting with our vulnerability, can reveal personal insights and truth. This can be a pathway to achieving a greater sense of connection through feeling into our own experience of being human.
