The most essential ingredient in all types of psychological therapy, as found by the scientific evidence, is the therapeutic relationship. This means, a good working alliance between therapist and client is important for a successful outcome.
Maree keeps in mind the Neuroscience of Psychotherapy. The general therapeutic leaning here is on Mindfulness, Body-Mind Connection, Affect, Limbic Resonance and the Therapeutic Relationship.
"Within a Psychodynamic framework, I keep in mind the importance of attachment and development. I also utilise a trauma-informed approach and psychological methods which assist with the embodiment of the whole self (e.g. Mindfulness, Somatic Experiencing, Emotional Focusing, Hakomi).
I am curious about the different ways people relate to their inner world, other people and the world around them. I believe nourishing relationships, connecting to our emotional world and compassionate acceptance of all parts of ourselves, as human beings, is fundamental to our wellbeing.
My main areas of work include emotional difficulties, intimacy issues, developmental trauma (e.g. emotional neglect), highly sensitive people, artists/creatives and people wanting to connect to themselves and others in a more real and full way.”
We change, develop and grow through our relational experiences
