My name is Patricia Prosper and I may be able to support you by offering a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space for you to use in whichever way serves you best. I am trained in Psychosynthesis counselling which is a holistic transpersonal therapy with a practical edge. This means that when working together we will include your mind, body, feelings and spiritual essence and will explore your untapped potential as well as your current and past issues.
We will work at your pace and may use a range of mediums such as body work, drawing, dreams, guided imagery, keeping a journal, chair work, and family systems and would only do so with your consent. These mediums can be effective in resolving inner conflict; accessing uncomfortable emotions; highlighting your relationship to different aspects of yourself; giving insight; and contacting your inner wisdom. They can be a useful resource to help promote and maintain personal empowerment.
My background is in Psychosynthesis therapy. I also draw from Psychodynamic therapy and other Humanistic therapies such as Person-centered and Gestalt so that I can best meet the needs of the client.
I offer counselling to individuals and couples both short term and longer term (open-ended).
In my work with couples I follow the IMAGO Relationship Therapy approach in which I facilitate structured dialogue between couples. This in turn creates a safe space within which aspects of the relationship can be safely explored. What makes this so rewarding is witnessing the renewal of the often long forgotten loving connection between couples.
I work within the BACP Professional and Ethical Framework for Good Practice
I have regular monthly supervision as a requirement of the BACP.
