“We are not victims of our genes, but masters of our fates, able to create lives overflowing with peace, happiness, and love.”
Bruce H. Lipton
Being You Helps Others
My practice is open to everyone, and I particularly specialise in nurturing the emotional well-being and unlocking the creative potential of counsellors, therapists, and all creative souls. My mission is to provide a safe and inspiring space where you can explore the depths of your emotions, break through your blocks to live your potential, and help you be authentically you.
Trauma can block the flow of your life force, which is creative in nature. With a solid understanding of several therapeutic theories, and recognising that the mind-body connection plays a crucial role in personal healing, I weave my approach blending traditional talking psychotherapy with cutting-edge energy psychology methods.
Let me guide you on a journey of self-discovery, helping you release emotional blocks that stop you from being yourself. The more authentic you become, the more you enable others to be their authentic selves.
WORK WITH ALDA
I offer individual sessions for adults both online and in person, in Exeter, Devon. I can sometimes look like a quirky therapist, as I offer you my tools, finding the therapeutic approach that might best support you. From our first meeting, I aim at creating a space where you will feel respected, accepted, and heard.
I am passionate about my work, and I am aware that many therapists know very little about energy techniques, which seem to be very effective for grounding, soothing, and transforming deep-seated traumas. I am happy to share my knowledge. Contact me for more information.
WHAT IS INTEGRATIVE ENERGY PSYCHOTHERAPY?
As an energy psychotherapist, I am passionate about energy work because it tends to bring about significant change in a short time. An increasing body of research validates the effectiveness of energy psychotherapy (also known as energy psychology), particularly EFT, demonstrating promising results. While some of these techniques still require further research to be considered "evidence-based," efforts are actively being made in this direction. Notably, NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) has recommended EFT for further research in the context of PTSD, highlighting its potential as a valuable therapeutic approach deserving of continued investigation.
However, my work encompasses more than talking and energy tools; it can involve movement, visualisations, art work, the language of the parts, and anything else that bypasses your active mind and awakens your inner healer. My aim is to help you to strengthen this inner healer so that it can help you explore and overcome your difficulties.
No matter the challenge you're facing, our first step is to empower you with effective techniques to calm your activation, overcome dissociative or depressive states, and regain control. As you become more adept at using these techniques, they will serve as a sort of secure internal healer, providing the groundwork for processing and addressing your underlying issues with confidence and safety.
Dance Your Life
If you're seeking change in your life but aren't ready for therapy or face financial constraints, consider joining one of my dance groups. This offers a softer and more accessible way to begin your transformative journey. While they are not classified as formal therapy, they can yield therapeutic benefits and positive effects.
