Welcome

We are all wired for connection. Safe, reliable relationships unlock and nourish our natural potential for growth and integration throughout our whole lives. It is never too late to build more satisfying ways of being and relating. Inspired by the incredible potential which is always present in open connected relating, we offer our presence and expertise with humility and a commitment to the life-long process of both personal and professional development.

Your Therapist at Holding Space Psychotherapy will listen deeply to help you better understand your difficulties, connect with your strengths and needs, and help you to envision and access your path to wellbeing, as defined by you. Offering a huge dose of respect and empathy, our approaches assist you to understand yourself and your relationships at the deepest levels. This includes your emotions, thoughts, body/nervous system experience and the interactions between your nervous system and those you relate with. This kind of tuning in can help you in every type of relationship, including with yourself, family, children, partners, friends, and colleagues.

Please take a look around our site and reach out as you are ready.

As the founder of Holding Space Psychotherapy, I am deeply grateful to be able to welcome therapists Liz James and Pino Leporace into Holding Space Psychotherapy. A core value for me is how important it is for therapists' to do their own deep inner work as preparation and as a source of ongoing enrichment of their therapy work.

Liz James and Pino Leporace have impressed me as deeply committed, respectful, and trustworthy individuals, who bring their warmth, wisdom and expertise reliably to those persons with whom they work.

“Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.”
