I’m pleased to introduce The Therapist Within, a blog about psychotherapy by Gabrielle Gawne-Kelnar. Gabrielle is a psychotherapist who comes to us from Sydney, Australia, and I’m hoping her perspective from a different country and culture on psychotherapy will bring us new insights into the therapy process and the different ways it is practiced. But I’ll let Gabrielle speak for herself:

A central part of my work as a therapist is a belief that everyone has their own answers, and their own unique solutions to the challenges in their lives, hidden somewhere inside them — it’s just that sometimes these answers can be hard to see.

So, together, we’re embarking on a kind of quest here. A quest for questions. For curious keys that might help unlock some of the answers you already carry within you.

Though it’s not meant to replace or provide therapy itself, the blog will aim to open up a space of healing curiosity.

Along the way, we’ll also explore and demystify some of the techniques and queries used in various therapeutic modalities.

Sounds like it’ll be an interesting and thoughtful journey, and we look forward to reading her future entries. Please give a warm Psych Central welcome to Gabrielle over there!
