Transpersonal-centred Clinical Psychologist
Cherie Levy is a Clinical Psychologist who works with a deep appreciation and respect for the transpersonal. Working practically and professionally, Cherie welcomes a deeper exploration into our inner nature, the life of the Soul.
Her experience in guiding people back to their connection with the natural world is shared as a key to connection to themselves and to the world around them.
As a Clinical Psychologist, Cherie has trained specifically to provide a thorough understanding of human development, personality structure and specific issues of mental health. Her extensive experience and understanding in the treatment of psychological distress means the container she holds fosters safety, awareness, exploration and curiosity.
Cherie holds specific interests in working with issues of trauma, life transitions, substance use, addiction, relationships and social challenges. Cherie encourages clients to develop insight to better understand old patterns and destructive habits in order to live a life rich in health and mental wellness.
Working with young adults is also key; who through intentional support of their journey from childhood identity into adult selves, achieve greater agency, sovereignty, self-awareness and personal responsibility as they move forward as independent individuals.
Her genuine passion for social connectedness and interpersonal intimacy lends itself to fostering safe, well-held and deeply nourishing environments to examine the nature of the Soul’s journey.
Cherie draws upon a range evidenced-based practice techniques such as interventions from mindfulness- and compassion-based cognitive-behavioural therapy; acceptance and commitment therapy; positive psychology; psychodynamic psychotherapy; attachment-based therapy; gestalt therapy; and depth psychology.
With training as a yoga teacher and in dynamic movement therapy, the relationship between the mind and body is integrated into Cherie’s work as a gateway into deeper ways of understanding ourselves as a whole. Ayurveda (ancient Indian understanding of medical science) and Chinese medicine theory provides her with a deeper reverence for the richness and texture of the interconnected human experience.
“I am currently taking leave as I undertake a personal, spiritual and professional development journey. In dedication to the depth of commitment to this work and to SoulScapes, I am undertaking training and tending to my own growth.
I look forward to bringing what I learn to my private practice, as further offerings to my clients, who I value and care for deeply. I will be back and taking bookings from the beginning of April 2020”
