Patricia Bowery, PH.D - “I see myself as a 'relationship' therapist - helping the people I work with to form loving, satisfying, rewarding relationships with self and others. I believe that the individual - you, is the expert and ultimately knows what is best for you. I also believe that you have all the abilities, skills and resources to fulfill your potential and lead a fulfilling life. I see myself as a kind of coach, helping you to unfold your natural potential and become the person you were intended to be.
Integrity, unconditional acceptance, compassion and respect for your uniqueness are vital. To help you, I like to apply whatever makes sense to both of us so that you can learn, heal and grow - to expand your present response repertoire so that you can get what you need.
I have had extensive training in the various modalities of hypnotherapy and like to employ its principles when appropriate and when they make sense to you. I also like to work with dreams - to help you to get in touch with healing energies."
