In practice: Together we will explore emotions, thoughts, early-life experiences and beliefs to gain insight into your life and present-day problems. You will be aided in identifying recurring patterns, internalised at an early age, that without your best interest at heart govern your actions and more often than not are the cause of internal and external conflicts.
Through gentle dismantling of resistance and emotional reactivity you will connect more deeply to your core self, that holds your true feelings and longings. The key-components of creating a happy fulfilled life.
