Christina takes care in establishing rapport and trust with her clients. These elements are critical to the outcomes of therapy. In the beginning, stabilisation, resourcing and strength building is developed for the individual, then skills for learning to self-reflect, taking charge of your feelings and of your self are developed. Once emotion regulation is achieved, we can then move on to processing and installation of new cognition and grow new healthier perspectives using your authentic value and strengths as the blue print.
Aware Psychology uses a psychotherapy approach, whereby the client attends willingly to become aware of their own process, to take charge, and learn new helpful patterns of change. The psychological process is collaborative, nothing is forced or acted on against your will; you are the driver for change, the psychologist is the guide. Together the psychologist and client arrive at insights and solutions. It is OK to feel overwhelmed or even disinterested when commencing a journey of self-improvement. Gradually the body and mind become at ease with sharing and exploring the psyche, and overtime sessions become more beneficial. You learn more about yourself and others from different perspectives, you learn what your strengths and values are, develop skills for facing challenges, understand the underlying reasons behind symptoms, and overcome specific problems.
