About the Therapist Within

This blog offers a space for wondering. For “loitering with intent,” as the narrative therapist Michael White might say.

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.

And sometimes we might simply follow in the footsteps of the poet Rilke, and just learn to “love the questions themselves.”

(I wonder what a quest like this might mean for you?)

Gabrielle Gawne-Kelnar (Grad Dip Counselling & Psychotherapy) is a Sydney psychotherapist in private practice at One Life Counselling & Psychotherapy.

Gabrielle also co-facilitates telephone support groups for people who are living with cancer, for their carers, and for people who have been bereaved through a cancer experience.

She is the editor of a journal on counselling and psychotherapy, the author of a private practice blog, and she provides regular therapeutic updates on facebook and Twitter @OneLifeTherapy.
