Depth Enquiry with Amanda

Amanda Gruhn ProfileAmanda offers Depth Enquiry to clients as a short program of 4 to 12 one hour sessions.

These sessions can be undertaken in parallel with other therapeutic work, either with Amanda or with another therapist, if necessary.

This arrangement means that a client does not need to discontinue existing therapeutic work while they undertake Depth Enquiry.

Background

Amanda developed Depth Enquiry over a period of 10 years, following her own training in EMDR in 2011 and her experiences of using EMDR with clients.

It became clear to her that she could take her clients deeper and could make faster, more lasting changes in them by incorporating Gestalt understandings into the process. (Amanda’s original psychotherapeutic training was in experiential Gestalt.)

Amanda started to call this amalgam “Depth Enquiry” – an enquiry into the psychic depths that underpin trauma and hold it locked (as in a fixed Gestalt).

Amanda found it exciting to see how long-held sufferings could be relieved by such a gentle and non-invasive process.

She quickly realised that the process could be valuable to other therapists seeking change for individuals affected by PTSD, so commenced her training workshops. These workshops have been warmly received and therapists report deep learnings as well as an engaging and enjoyable experience.

Contact Amanda if you would like to experience this process.
