Faye as a Therapist
Faye has always had an interest in psychology. Her father was a
pioneer in the 50's with hypnosis and regression techniques, so with
this background it is perhaps not surprising that her interest in people
was stimulated from an early age. Her father introduced her to
Freud which he was studying when she was a teenager.
Her next encounter with psychology was when she included it in her
subjects for her first degree - A Bachelor of Science from the
University of Auckland, New Zealand.
Faye started studying astrology in the 1970's and psychology plays a big
role in the type of astrology she started with. When she started
professional astrological counselling in 1986, she realised that painful
areas could easily be touched upon and so for her own peace of mind, and
also because she felt it was professionally responsible, she decided to
begin therapy training.
Her first three years of training were part of an astrotherapy course,
run by Jan de Graaf in the Netherlands. Although the basis of this
course was astrology, many therapeutic techniques were covered,
practiced and integrated with astrological thought. These
included voice dialogue, bodywork, gestalt, guided imagery, Inner Child
and communication training to name a few.
After she graduated from this course and started to use more therapeutic
techniques in her practice, she decided to study Inner Child work in
more depth and did a 2 year course with Trisha Caetano. Later she worked
together with Trisha where she was involved with assisting with later
training groups. This work was very deep and included regression work
including past life work. Faye has also studied past life work
with Hans ten Dam, also a well-known international figure who teaches in
the Netherlands and who has written many books on the subject.
Faye's therapy approach now includes elements of all the therapy
training she did, however the main basis is astrology, which she finds
the best tool for understanding an issue very quickly. Together
she and the client can work with the appropriate technique to get to
grips with and help solve the problem. Many of Faye's therapy
clients come to her to learn more about their life path, not necessarily
to work on 'problems'. The combination of astrology, regression and
other techniques offers a great platform for this work.
Services Offered by Faye
Services offered in English or Dutch.
Faye always does an intake session with the horoscope as a basis. She
can and will also work without astrology if that is requested, but
because it is such a useful tool for therapy, this is not her
After the intake is finished, there is a verbal contract made as to how
many sessions will be done. Inner Child work does not require years of
therapy. It is a technique that works very quickly. After around 5
sessions, it is possible to evaluate if the techniques are useful and
helpful and then further work can be scheduled if necessary. If another
type of therapy appears to be more appropriate that can always be
discussed. Faye's clients often come for a few sessions, and once the
presenting issue is clear then stop until they feel the need for more
work. After the initial few sessions, you may make any number of
appointments any time. The sessions usually take around 2 hours.
The issues covered are many and varied, such as childhood trauma, later
trauma, issues with children, parents or partners, both business and
private. Many clients come to deal with blocks that affect their
careers. Emotional issues are always present of course.
Although Faye has a compassionate approach, this doesn't mean that
therapy is without humour! Much insight can be gained on painful issues
through a good laugh. The idea for Faye behind any therapy is that you
get closer to the authentic you.
