Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is the study of different mental health problems, their management and prevention. Also called talking therapy, it teaches the client more about their condition, moods, feelings, behaviours, and actions. Psychotherapy enables the client to take control of their life and respond positively to difficult situations through the use of coping strategies. 

Esoteric Psychotherapy

Esoteric Psychotherapy is a combination of talking therapy and the manipulation of the forces of energy, known as chakras and the vital/energy body, known as the aura, using the sacred geometrical shape of the Triangle. It deals with an individual’s energy body using the healing circuits, known as triangles, to form a clinical diagnosis relating to physiological and psychological ailments.

Closed Group Therapy

In 2020, I will be offering small weekly group sessions.  These will be closed groups (max 5 participants) and once the session commences, no new members can join for the 4-week duration. Once you commit to the group you are expected to attend all 4 sessions. The group sessions will focus on helping people make fundamental changes in their way of thinking, feeling and behaving. There will also be an educational focus to help members learn specific coping skills.

Chakras-Forces of Energy

Chakra is a Sanskrit word which means, “the turning of the wheel of the Law”. These chakras are wheel-like vortices which exist in the surface of the etheric double. (link) The chakra energy system within the human body has major and minor chakras that permeate your whole energy body. Your main chakras can be divided into three groups and they are the ones that are most prominent in helping you live a happy and healthy life: Upper: Crown Ajna Throat – Middle: Heart – Lower: Solar Plexus Navel/Sacral Basic 

Types of Psychotherapy 

Liz offers three modes of Psychotherapy. Individual Traditional Psychotherapy – the talking cure.  Esoteric Psychotherapy using the talking cure plus a combination of energy work with the chakras and etheric body (aura).

Each session assists the client to recognise the cause of their malaise so they can better function at a personal and professional level.

 Esoteric Psychotherapy

Using a combination of talking and energy therapy, Esoteric Psychotherapy (EP) assists the client in balancing their flow of qi or energy. A client typically presents with troubling issues that might be physical or emotional or both. When the negative impact of such issues and or feelings of discontent become too much, people will search out a form of healing, signalling that they are ready for a change in their life. By restoring the energy balance between body, mind and soul, EP helps and encourages the necessary changes. Specifically, EP facilitates the release of that harmful ‘package’ of energy at the root of the problem allowing the client to regain their balance and harmony.

Closed Group Psychotherapy

Group psychotherapy & counselling is an increasingly utilised therapeutic intervention that is affordable and effective. It offers real promise in meeting today’s mental health challenges. The group process has a unique learning advantage for clients as the wisdom of the counsellor is enhanced through the sharing of personal experiences of the participants.

Problems That Can Be Addressed By Psychotherapy & Esoteric Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy and esoteric psychotherapy can be used in addressing numerous problems and challenges

Addictions

Whether it is addiction or over-reliance on an activity or substance, it likely involves psychological addiction. Through counselling, the root cause of psychological addiction is explored to find a way to relieve it.

Bereavement

The loss of a loved one can bring up emotions like anger and sadness. Speaking to a counsellor can help ease those emotions and even resolve remaining issues that the person may harbour.

Depression

Depression is unlike an occasional bout of sadness. It affects a person’s day-to-day activities and is a debilitating psychological problem. Depression counselling in Hong Kong helps patients make sense of underlying feelings to improve their feelings and consequently improve their lives.

Illness

Suffering from a serious illness like cancer can turn any individual’s world upside down. Through counselling, clients can come to terms with their ailments while getting emotional support

Mental Health

Any mental health issues can cause a person to feel isolated and alone. Counselling can lead to the client gaining a better understanding of feelings that are a result of a mental health issues. Counselling helps provide support to overcome personal challenges that mental health problems can aggravate.

Trauma

The psychological impact of trauma, whether due to an accident or being a victim of abuse, can last for years after the actual incident. In counselling, trauma victims get to explore their feelings about distressing events and find ways to resolve or change their state of mind.

My Approach

My approach to counselling is based on using Emotional Intelligence and Mindfulness. This will allow us to tackle the mental, emotional and physical problems that are causing you distress.  An important part of this process is being able to talk in confidence to a trained professional. This is what I offer to you. A safe space to work through any of your psychological issues.

Counselling is offered in different formats, including individual, couple, family or group therapy sessions, and it is effective for all age groups. The way that a session is conducted varies depending on the individual situation.

 

What to Expect?

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is a collaborative treatment between therapist and client and working together they build a trusting relationship that helps the psychological process. By building a supportive environment the client is able to talk freely and openly. Using the objective non-judgemental therapist as the listener it becomes easier for client and therapist to identify and change the behaviour patterns that are preventing the patient from living a productive and happy life. The treatment requires multiple appointments. The session is 45-50 minutes sitting in chairs with the therapist and client facing each other.

Therapist's Role

One of the most important parts of any therapy session is the therapeutic alliance.  This is created between therapist and client using the therapist’s professional knowledge and training plus the client’s willingness to share their problems in a safe and confidential environment.

It is the role of the therapist to create this safe space by being welcoming, organised and professional.

Esoteric Psychotherapy

Esoteric psychotherapy uses a combination of talking and energy therapy. The therapist uses the sacred geometrical shape of the triangle plus the soul energy of both therapist and client to access the root of the problem allowing the client to regain their balance and harmony. Duration is between 45-50 minutes and the initial part of the session is done sitting in chairs with the therapist and client facing each other. The latter part of the session,  is done with the client either lying down or sitting.
