In each of the ' roles' pages you will find details of Faye's experience in each area. However perhaps a better question to start with is why astrology at all?
Why would you want to use any of these services?
Astrology is not only what you see in newspapers and magazines. Although some of these forecasts may be excellent, they give very little information compared to what can be obtained from a full astrological reading. A session with an experienced astrologer can provide insight into many of life's issues. Clients come for many different reasons, but the main ones are probably job, partners, parents, siblings, children and the more spiritual questions, such as life purpose. Astrology can answer questions as to why we might be with a particular partner or what job suits best. It can provide an answer as to how long a particular issue will last and what we can learn from it. The most common feedback is that an astrological reading confirms what clients instinctively know and this can be very comforting. It can give us the courage to follow our dreams. A normal astrological reading takes about 1.5 to 2 hours and it may be recorded if required. This usually covers a basic chart reading and looks a year ahead for present and upcoming themes. Many clients return each year to gain a focus for the year ahead. But many come more frequently to gain insight into a particular issue.
Other astrological tools can provide information on the 'Where' questions. E.g. Which country would be good for a new business venture? Which area of a city would I feel happy living in? Where would I enjoy a holiday? Should I take the job in e.g. Rome or Los Angeles? Faye also offers career counselling based on astrological principles combined with her therapeutic approach.
Oftentimes clients have questions concerning relationships. Astrologers who, like Faye, are members of recognised professional groups, may not give information concerning other people without their permission. It is possible to give some information related to how the client may be affected from the client's viewpoint. However, where there are problems in a relationship, the best solution is to seek advice together, as the problems can only be solved together. Astrology offers tools to look at relationships in the form of a joint chart. This horoscope can show where the challenges may be and how they may be helped. As a trained therapist Faye can provide an objective look at these issues and provide a safe space for issues to be discussed together. By having the charts, the main issues can be found very quickly, as opposed to the way this has to be done in normal couples counselling.
Astrology is a great tool for providing insight and timing and although this can help a great deal, it may not be enough to change a stubborn pattern or an emotional block. Astrology is a 'mental' discipline. We can explain ideas, and open up emotional issues but we need other techniques to help with emotional and physical problems. Astrology can be a great help as a diagnostic tool, for example in career counselling, but healing the recognised blocks may need support from a trained counsellor. Therapy helps to change patterns and gives support to release old issues and learn how to approach problems in a new way. Faye makes a contract with her clients to review progress after 5 sessions and because the techniques she uses ( Inner Child Integration Therapy and Regression Therapy amongst others) usually work quickly it is possible to see if the therapy is useful to the client or not and to decide what the next steps should be. It is not the intention that clients spend many months in therapy. Faye's clients have often come for a few sessions and then when a new issue arises they may come back for a few sessions. Clients are expected to work on problems themselves and take responsibility for their progress. A trained therapist supports this process.
Many people find the idea of aura reading appealing possibly because it speaks in images and it appears to have a more spiritual content than astrology. Faye sees her astrological and aura reading consultations as providing similar benefits. Her astrological sessions require more input from the client as she feels discussions can deliver better results with astrology. Her aura reading sessions tend to be just that - readings, with less input from the client although questions may be asked. The session may be recorded. An aura reading describes the energy around the person and in the different energy points in the body (the chakras.) These readings offer information on current issues and sometimes on patterns from past lives.
