As a Credentialed Mental Health Nurse Emily has experience in supporting people who have a diagnosed mental illness; Emily is confident in supporting you through this.
You might just have some existential thoughts about life; maybe you’re wondering about purpose, connection or relationships. There really isn’t a right or wrong reason to enter into therapy; it can be simply "I wonder why.....?”
Personal therapy is a great way to gain more awareness into who we are and why we do things. Emily’s theory of therapy is based on the need for connection as humans; that the relationship between you and I is really important to the process of therapy.
A parting note;
Can we really live every day with “connectedness”, “in the zone” and in a flow state? Well YES and NO. NO if you expect to keep doing exactly what you are doing now, but make no changes. YES, if you’re prepared to open and change, whatever that might be.
FIVE TIPS TO GET IN THE ZONE
BE SKY – lie on your back and look at the clouds. Focus intensely and pretend that you can make them evaporate. Start with small clouds in the blue sky, and slowly build to larger ones.
BE SPACE – sit comfortably. Take in the scene in front of you, noticing all the stuff in it. Expand your awareness so that you shift it from the stuff to the space between all the stuff.
BE PEACE – sit somewhere busy. Meditate with your eyes open and see whether you can let it wash over you. Explore being still, finding peace amidst the noise and haste. Practice dialing into the peace in your everyday life.
BE NATURE – go into nature and take in all the sounds. Let yourself be a kind of antenna that notices all the sounds that are increasing subtler or further away. Become more and more attuned. Now do the same with sensations in your body; feeling even subtler ones.
BE PRESENT – sit opposite a friend and the first person tells the other about their life in 10 minutes straight, while the other person listens fully and does not reply or engage in mental dialogue. Mirror each other’s body position and posture. Notice the power of deep listening and the profound presence this evokes.
