What I believe
I’m OK; You’re OK
People come to therapy to reclaim the ability to have fun and to figure
out what they want.
We all have our own inner wisdom.
We won’t always know how to change or how to go through a life
transition; we don’t have to do it alone.
All the old unacknowledged, un-witnessed, unexpressed feelings wait
It takes more energy to hold in / push down pain than it takes to move
through it and heal.
Therapy will not always be dark, heavy and painful; laughter is healing.
We learn patterns of behaviour based on early decisions which made perfect
sense “back then”; some decisions we will want to keep and
some we will want to change.
We can re-parent ourselves; incomplete developmental tasks can be completed
We can change our negative automatic self talk at a brain level.
