Counselling and Psychotherapeutic Approach
Eileen’s approach to counselling and psychotherapy is humanistic and integrative. She believes that each person has the potential to live their lives in peace and harmony when they are given the opportunity to explore their issues in a safe and non-judgemental space.
She believes that when we can unfold our story and the parts of ourselves that block us from living our lives in a meaningful way, great understanding and transformation can take place. She believes within this space we can learn about our thought processes, behaviours, our triggers, the stories we tell ourselves and how to practice compassion for ourselves, to enable us to grow and change.
