It is an honor beyond words to witness another finding and developing their own voice and reclaiming their passion and their power.
Through the study of Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) we have a great new understanding of the restorability of wholeness where emotional damage was done from unresponsive, unconscious, or even violent caretakers. Our work is in the relationship, as the 'interpersonal' actually enables a new neurologic wiring as well as new realizations of worthiness and value.
A Depth psychological approach means, in part, that the soul (psyche) of the individual is expected to BE a major player in our work together. This is in addition to the rational mind or 'ego', and 'the soul's voice' is going to be expressing its greatest desire for this individual. We must listen to subtle, unconscious communications as we invite in the healing impulse of psyche.
Psychotherapy is by definition care of the soul (psyche+therapy). You are already whole and our journey in this life is to regain the Life, the Passion, the truth of our Being... often by examining the layers of beliefs and traumas that are clouding our access to our truest Self.
Most of us know that there are expected aspects of grief and loss. What we often don't realize is that OUR WAY of grieving is just that, it is OUR way. We cannot compare to find a 'right way'. We do need permission to allow the experience to unfold. And then we watch, in time, as Intensity, Duration, and Frequency of the pain changes. The loss is forever. The quality of our sadness changes.
Trauma -- beyond the label of only PTSD, but in all of its forms and ways of being experienced -- needs to be listened to in order to be released or reconciled and integrated.
Introducing the ability to access a calmer space which teaches the brain and the individual that it is possible FOR THEM! Once an individual can begin to notice the content of calm surrounding and the body-content of anxiety, they can begin to find hope and then true success to returning to a calmer, centered state.
