I work with people whose stories have been stollen, changed with no consent, deleted or even erased. I work with individuals who might struggle with the complexities and uncertainties of life.These experiences may feel elusive, messy or chaotic, silently eroding key areas of our existence, slowly draining life from colours and flow. Over time, a life with no colour and flow could impact our overall sense of wellbeing.
This might lead to feelings of depression, anxiety, feeling disconnected from your self and from the world; it could also look like what some call 'personality disorder', complex trauma.
Why Sfumato? – Sfumato was one of the models of painting during the Renaissance. Leonardo da Vinci described it as “without lines or borders, in the matters of smoke or beyond the focus plane”.
Sfumato Psychotherapy reflects this principle – what wishes to be seen is beyond the daily focus. In the sfumato of life, the healing figures of our imagination hide by day and walk by night; they speak when we lose ourselves in play in order to be found again.
