We often experience disruptions in our lives, sometimes from within ourselves and sometimes from outside of ourselves. All too often we find ourselves questioning why we keep re-experiencing some of the same kinds of struggles over and over again. We can begin to feel like a victim or doomed to having these self-defeating experiences.
Often, we attribute these challenging experiences to someone or something outside of ourselves and outside our control. In many cases this may be in large part true. However, more often than not, when we are able to objectively look at our situations, perhaps with the assistance of a close friend or therapist, we may come to see how incongruence in our own belief system may have been keeping us in the cycle of abuse re-experience some of the same old pain over and over again.
We begin the healing process by getting in touch with the parts in the internal belief system that are hanging us up. As we progress I work with you in a process of bring your own recourses, belief and values into the healing/integration process of your internal belief system.
Through the healing process clients often find themselves become more integrated and congruent with their own beliefs, values and true identity. They often find themselves staying calm in the moment of crisis, exercising more clearly defined boundaries where they didn’t even believe it was possible before. Challenging situations are often averted as clients find themselves handling the situation with greater awareness, grace and respect of self and others.
"The principle aim of psychotherapy is not to transport one to an impossible state of happiness, but to help [the client] acquire steadfastness and patience in the face of suffering."
- Carl Jung
