I have been offering clinical counselling and psychotherapy for adult individuals and couples of various backgrounds and orientations since 1993. I am fluent in English & Japanese.
My work as a counsellor is to assist you in your search for Living Your Life to the Fullest. As a human being we have Hopes/Longing which draw us toward our dreams, as well as fears which act as obstacles.
I utilize various approaches in my therapy to 1)assist you understand the nature of your obstacles in order for you to work through them,2) assist you to become fully aware of your hopes/longing, 3) assist you to find ways to actualize your dreams. I think of this process as an organic Unfolding of our Authentic Being.
Unfolding Heart Counselling is the name that I chose for my practice. The process of unfolding depicts my therapeutic style which is gentle and organic. When we allow ourselves to be truly at ease, a fresh almost child-like curiosity arises about our inner experience of that moment. This inner state, even when it may be a very short time, allows our inherent well-being, inner health to unfold spontaneously. We all have had those "Aha" moments in the past, which helped to shift our understanding of our selves and therefore our lives as we experience them. All the therapeutic modalities I utilize in therapy sessions assist counsellees realize that we have agencies over being in close connection with our inner inherent well-being/ innate-health at all times.
