Psychology and psychotherapy are a very broad field encompassing the human mind and behaviour, the soul, meaning and purpose, healing, relationships, life direction, past trauma and future challenges within the context of ‘life, the universe and everything’. You can talk in confidence at your own pace whether this be a brief solution-focused intervention or over a more lengthy timespan. A good therapist works like a personal trainer, tutor and mentor regarding the deeper aspects of a person, focusing on specific issues that are troubling and disturbing to one’s coping ability, health and wellbeing. These problems are relative to the individual and can be large or minor. It may be a matter of improving one’s performance, overcoming obstacles or indeed it may be a matter of life and death.
Ben utilizes an integral eclectic method of psychological counseling which means that the best therapeutic method is selected to suit the client’s needs. Methods include mindfulness based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic therapy, Hypnosis, Family therapy, empathic listening and supportive counseling and shamanic wilderness therapy. Methods are based on deeper understanding of how the mind functions and how behaviour works within the developmental context of environment and relationships (Integral systems and cybernetics theory). We may aim to change behavior as well as deepen the understanding we have of ourselves, others and the world. We can also modify the personality and the way in which we express and interact with our minds and the alternate/hidden aspects of our selves. Special approaches based on energy and deeper dynamics of the soul are also offered. If appropriate, high tech approaches such as neuro-feedback are utilized. Therapy works when we focus time, intention and respect, compassion, therapeutic alliance seeking deeper clarity in a way that suits the individual. Goals can be set and reached utilizing tools and strategies. Personal growth, acceptance and change, peace and atonement can be facilitated over time.
