Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.
In all chaos, there is a cosmos, in all disorder, a secret order.
There is no coming to consciousness without pain.
Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darkness of other people.
The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely.
Many people yearn for a rhythmic sacred experience. As an artist, my work has been profoundly influenced by mythology, spiritual journeying and a deep delving into the unconscious. Now, as a psychotherapist in training, I strive to bring those elements together into a format to help support the psychological well-being of other creative women. 'Communion' is an affordable, weekly, sacred support group – designed for participants to exchange experiences in an atmosphere of empathy. Sessions are based on a shared dialogue around a psychological theme designed to provoke insight and awakening. Participants will receive a journal to take notes and record their dreams for shared analysis. Sessions last for 2hrs. Participation is €20. Places are limited.
Femme artists and creatives deal with a unique set of psychological issues, which are often compounded by financial insecurity and sexual harassment.
My background in performance gives me a unique insight into the burdens and nuances of the inner world of the artist, making me uniquely positioned to assist those in artistic spheres. Psychotherapy is not about fixing complicated feelings but instead becoming aware of them and learning to live with them. It is not about becoming better adapted to society but rather about becoming authentically individual. It is impossible to avoid all of life's suffering, but it is possible to learn to live with it. Psychotherapy is as much about acceptance as it is about change. Only when we learn to embrace reality as it is – including the existential fact of suffering – will we be free to make life more meaningful and creative. This is also the fundamental nature of spirituality which is, for me, an integral aspect of psychotherapy.
I am certified to offer group and individual counselling, and I am in the process of becoming a registered psychotherapist. I offer affordable psychodynamic counselling on a sliding scale as well as reduced-fee support to minorities whenever possible. Please fill in the contact form and I will get back to you. In person and online sessions are currently available.
Join us for a weekend intensive to connect with a community of powerful women and feed the wild feminine within. Settle into a profoundly nourishing weekend away. You will participate in healing ceremonies involving reclaiming and honouring your path as a creative woman. You will experience nourishment from the Earth, use the purifying power of fire and water, reclaim your wild nature, sing with your sisters and remember who you are within a supportive community. You will spend time around the fire at night under the moonlight, tending to the flames, praying with sacred herbs, and sharing your story. You will purify and nourish your body with locally grown plant foods and herbs. With focused intent, you will leave with a sense of belonging and a community of lifelong sisters. You will create prayerful art and gain new skills for living a more connected life in tune with the Earth and her rhythms. As we near our gathering, I will send instructions on how to prepare for it consciously. Please register your interest via the contact form.
