Hugh Ransley MA LLP
I trust deeply in you, and will be fully present to you as you navigate along the path to healing and wholeness. We are fluid beings and have the capacity to change, and transcend suffering, and I am here to support you on your journey.
I will support you, and your process, enabling you to freely explore any areas of your life from the present, and move forward.
Through the therapeutic relationship, where you will be held in high esteem, accepted and honored, you will be able to attend to your self, and when needed or desired, make changes in your life.
Meditation is a useful method of becoming present.
Becoming more aware of our moment to moment experience can be helpful in seeing how we respond to the world around us, our beliefs about ourselves and others, and how we act in accordance with these beliefs and stories.
Bringing our ways of seeing and acting into focus through the practice of meditation can be beneficial to psychotherapy.
Becoming aware is the first step in the change process. Bringing what is unconscious into conscious awareness is key.
Zazen is the type of meditation I teach.
Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy
Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is a modality in facilitating clients to access, through the use of ketamine, a non ordinary state of consciousness where the innate wisdom of the individual can be safely accessed.
With the support and guidance of a trained KAP therapist, the client has the opportunity to gain a perspective that is not easily accessible in day to day life.
KAP is a modality that involves several preparation sessions, a ketamine-assisted session using the medication, and follow up therapy integration sessions.
Person Centered Therapy is an optimistic approach, and sees human beings as fluid, and able to change. Within the therapeutic relationship, that is emotionally and psychologically safe, characterized by warmth, acceptance, authenticity and empathy, you will be able to explore your life from the present moment which will empower you to meet life's challenges, and grow in power and freedom.
Being authentic is important to me. Holding space for you with acceptance and compassion to enable and empower you is important to me. Collaborating with you, on your journey of healing is important to me, and it is an honor to be of service to another human being.
We all experience challenges in our lives. It is how we deal with them that matters. Often times, seeking out support is a good way forward. Counseling can be useful on so many fronts, whether it is addressing longstanding depression and anxiety, or managing changes at work, or exploring relationship issues. With the awareness you have, that has lead you here, you are well on the way to empowering yourself, taking responsibility and moving into your power and freedom.
Change is possible!
Hugh has made such a change in my daughter's life. She is moving forward with positive thoughts and actions now!
