About me and my therapy practice

I am a BACP senior accredited therapist and supervisor with over twenty years experience.   I see our work as a collaboration in which kindness plays a key part.  

Traumas held within us are pockets or 'holdings in time' of unmet, unsupported, undigested life.   I journey into the unknown feeling your experience with you so that you may feel truly met.

Through gentle probing and sensitive questioning, through guiding you into a deeper experiencing of your body's 'felt sense', through a sharing of insights that arise between us, I facilitate you into a deepening awareness of your own life.

I create a safe space for you to feel into your feelings, and as you meet them, you may discover a new sense of freedom and aliveness within you and your life. Feelings, once acknowledged, are self-liberating, and fuel us into greater wholeness. It is only when they are unrecognised, unmet and unloved that they trap us.

We will explore patterns of thought and belief - our conditioning - and feel how this impacts on us. Old patterns which have kept you hostage, can be cast aside as you become conscious of them, so that you may open up to your more natural state, and live a life of greater freedom.

At times we may explore dreams, use meditative practices, and sit in silence. You may in our sessions discover a stillness out of which all these experiences arise. And you may discover that this stillness is not separate from you.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified supervisor, with a diploma in clinical and creative supervision. I work both with trainee counsellors and experienced therapists. As a supervisor I work relationally. I see the supervision process as a rich tapestry in which we explore your clients’ challenges, how this might be impacting you, and also us in the supervision session. From feeling into the unfolding story arising between you and your clients we will gain insights that will support you and your clients in your work together. We will explore this in an embodied way, bringing our awareness to our ‘felt sense’. We will work reflectively, exploring different perspectives, and out of our creative collaboration an enriching dialogue will ensue. You, first and foremost are the ‘tool’ in your work, and my aim is to fully support you in re-sourcing yourself, so that you may leave feeling inspired.  For testimonials please go to my webpage http://helenedemetriades.co.uk/supervision/
