Kathy Metcalf, LCSW-C, TEP
After completing a Graduate degree at The University of Maryland I went on to study Psychodrama and action group methods to become certified as a Trainer. I then spent several years working with sexual trauma survivors as a team therapist with The Therapeutic Spiral Method.
After starting a private practice in 1991, yoga, meditation and mindfulness and body based practices became part of my own self-care. This has branched into a specialty that I weave into my work with clients.
Some years ago, I was approached to speak at a Coach Training Program about the differences between Coaching and Psychotherapy. From that day until now, my practice grew tremendously and I'm privileged to be a Therapist for Coaches and other clients, all over the Globe.
This forced me to become comfortable with virtual modalities of providing Therapy. The Psychotherapy Industry has not fully embraced therapy via phone or video. I, on the other hand, do, and have many clients enjoying a powerful transformative experience from the privacy of their own home or office.
Working remotely has expanded my creativity and intuition as a healer. I'm currently working on a book to share and train others to use the protocol I've developed for this virtual world.
Here's a brief summary of my method. "Rooms in Your House" is a tool that anyone can use. First, we ground ourselves in the Hallway of Awareness developing a Friendly Observer. Once anchored in this role, we can discover the various parts of ourselves by imagining each part existing in a room in a house, in our mind. Once inside a specific room, using creativity, imagination and connection to the body, the work begins.
