April Bennett, MA, EdS, LPC
My history and training is in somatic psychology, meditation practice, and traditional psychotherapy practice.
I approach psychotherapy from a body-led orientation, with the practice of mindfulness informing my presence in session and my sense of your and my self. I have found that the way we are together can effect profound change, not caused by me, but recognized and held with assistance in the dyad between us. As Thich Nat Hanh says, we “inter-are”.
I have long years of training and experience meeting trauma. I am here to support your self-regulation, your feeling of your ability to hold yourself, your trust in your capacity to live with balance. I trust your body’s ability to center around health in the same way it sometimes centers around disturbance. I am a believer in leaning in, in holding space for our emotions in radical and practical ways, in practicing the somewhat tedious work of meeting ourselves over and over again.
In any given session we will work on skills of mindfulness, somatic dialogue, interpersonal process, and identifying core experiences underlying the stories we tell. We will work on boundaries, and sensing self. We will work on trauma in a way that releases the trauma patterns in the brain, and allows centering around health, repose, and resource.
Your beliefs are your reality.
But what if you have beliefs that are subconscious stumbling blocks in your life? And what if you could easily and painlessly replace those negative, limiting beliefs with positive truths? Why, then, you clear the way to a new place of expanded potential in every area of your life: relationships, self-esteem, financial prosperity, career choices, health and fitness, spiritual growth.
Beyond Affirmations: PSYCH-K® statements work at the subconscious level, where 95% of your brain functions. You rewrite the software of the subconscious with positive truths, thereby eliminating the need for daily affirmations. Once the truth is in the subconscious, it is simply true!
Beyond Willpower: PSYCH-K facilitation helps you reach your full potential as a spiritual being. You move beyond will-power, beyond desire, to embedding fundamental truth. It no longer is a matter of strength and determination, but of grace.
Beyond Positive Thinking: If your conscious self thinks and works towards one goal, yet your subconscious self believes a different truth, how successful do you think the conscious thinking will be? Rather, then, to reprogram the subconscious mind to align with your positive conscious mind. PSYCH-K creates a Whole-Brain State, a gateway to higher consciousness, new levels of functionality and creativity.
That's the gift and celebration of PSYCH-K facilitation. You can rewrite the software of your subconscious, reprogram the negative with positive truth, and permanently affect all aspects of your life: mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being.
PSYCH-K® Facilitation – Beyond affirmations, beyond willpower, beyond positive thinking.
