Elisabeth Muller Stein Counselling & Psychotherapy
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
Counselling and Psychotherapy
Counselling and Psychotherapy can provide the opportunity to forge a unique relationship with another who will listen without judging. The therapist is trained and experienced in staying with you as you are and as you explore and journey. Counselling tends to focus more on a particular issue, while psychotherapy goes deeper, to the cause, helping to understand and resolve what underlies these present circumstances, dealing with all of the person. As we journey together, the therapist neither rushes ahead nor lags behind, but stays with you at your pace, as your companion. This provides a safe, supportive, confidential space in which to explore where you find yourself your feelings, thoughts and aspirations – in relation to yourself and to others. In this space it becomes safe to look at the fears that are getting in the way of your joy, in a way that is not re-traumatising but empowering and healing. This work brings in new awareness, providing you with the opportunity to find your own solutions and make decisions that can empower you and move you on again in your life, gaining a deeper understanding and acceptance of yourself. My work is humanistic and integrative with Gestalt, inner child work, person- centred or psychodynamic approaches, sometimes also using dreams or crayons as a safe and gentle way in for us to find clarity.
