Amidst the uncertainty that troubles us we each have the seed of an Authentic & Empowering Unique Self that is waiting to be nourished, to blossom and be fully lived.
– Christina Manfredi
The foundation of my therapeutic approach is highly relational and holistically based on contemporary research in the areas of mental health, positive psychology, depth psychotherapy, consciousness studies, spirituality, and neuroscience. I have integrated this research and training in a practical way with body-mind-spirit healing, and ancient wisdom approaches for the experience of wellbeing and a sense of authentic personal meaning and fulfillment in life.
Foremost the therapeutic approach that I offer looks to work with the innate intelligent self-organizing and self-healing principle in your mind-body-spirit whose purpose is to maintain your health and wellbeing. In this regard your unique and intelligent true self and health is strengthened so that you can live a purposeful and meaningful life that you truly desire.
Whilst the approach that I offer arises from the clinical orientations of my training, the foundations of the therapeutic work is also spiritually, phenomenologically, trans-generationally, and somatically informed.
I believe in the healing capacity of your human spirit, the innate self- healing and intelligent wisdom of your body, positive relationship, nature, and your creative capacity for awareness, choice and informed action. I consider that we have a physical, emotional, intuitive, thinking, relational, energetic, and spiritual nature and that we exist within a broader interconnected web of life that includes the health & vitality of our precious earth. I also believe and witness how the inner work that we undertake not only brings healing changes to our lives, but has a broader ripple through effect, ultimately bestowing potential healing to our next generations. What the ancients have always known, the scientific field of epigenetic now demonstrates.
The therapy that I offer honors all aspects of your unique Self in respecting the relationship between your inner, and outer world, your relationship with yourself, with others and your relationship with the fullness of Life itself.
In the therapy we start with your present experience and awareness to identify precisely what it is that limits you from living a full, connected, meaningful and purposeful life. We then continue in releasing any old and unhelpful beliefs, conditioned patterned responses, blocks and attachments. I can then assist you in accessing, and further developing awareness skills to strengthen personal resources and action necessary for a more empowered, meaningful, and satisfying connection with your Self, Others, and your Broader World.
Each of us is unique, with our experiencing being informed through a historical, trans-generational, and current context. Your freewill within your unique content is paramount.
