Benjamin Turale

Languages Spoken:

I am passionate about being with people as they learn about themselves. From there I assist them to transform as they overcome challenges, enhance wellbeing and realise their full potential.My name is Ben, and I am a transpersonal psychotherapist and clinical supervisor. The type of therapy I provide is driven by the needs of my clients, working in a way that is underpinned by a strong emphasis on a kind, collaborative relationship as this is primarily what research demonstrates is the largest driver of positive outcomes in therapy. I also use approaches to problem solving that fits the ways that clients like to work, rather than using a 'one size fits all' way of working.My clinical background has mainly been counselling in EAP and adult educational settings. I have also worked with clients with a mental illness in the community sector and I now run my own private practice. Currently I also work as a university lecturer in Counselling. I work mostly with clients struggling with depression, anxiety and identity.I am a reflective practitioner and am committed to my own personal healing and growth through doing my own therapy and spiritual development. I consider the two to be intimately connected – my skills as a therapist depend not only on my training but also my own self-awareness and integration process.The techniques I use come from a broad range of specialised training I have received including transpersonal therapy, emotion focused therapy, art therapy, gestalt, mindfulness, dream work, solution focused therapy, acceptance and committment therapy, ritual work and alchemy.The supervision I provide has a transpersonal approach with particular attention paid to projection, transference and counter-transference as it exists in the counselling relationship. I am also keen to help my supervisees develop their case conceptualisation, their careers, to become more aware of their own self care and connect to friendly ecology in their lives. More than anything I feel that supervision is a space for the therapist to 'top up' their vitality and normalise any problematic energy in a safe and supportive environment. I have had quite a bit of experience with new graduate therapists and helping to ferry them accross into the profession either in working in an agency or setting up private practice.Feel free to contact me, I offer free 10-15 consults in order to get a feel if we are right for each other. I provide supervision both in person and via Zoom.
