Emotions, as anxiety, anger and fear reflect your body’s attempts to communicate an unmet need. Learning to navigate through the emotional landscape you inhabit with greater understanding, acceptance, and appreciation of your body's wisdom, is key to changing your reactions and improving your relationships with yourselves and others. In doing so, empathy and self-compassion will replace shame and self-judgment and your capacity to manage the different emotional experiences will increase.
Leaning into the felt experience of your emotions is a way of moving forward and honoring your humanness.
Traumatic experiences can overwhelm your capacity to cope and affect the way you experience the world, self and others. As such, it is often not the trauma itself that determines the need for therapy, yet rather the manner in which you have been affected by the trauma. Navigating through the social, emotional, physical, and spiritual effects of trauma moves you forward in this process of grief and healing so insight and new experiences can unfold.
Reestablishing a sense of safety and stability in your life is key to trauma recovery.
The self is the essence of who you are; your core being that represents your values, beliefs, and strengths that govern your thoughts, interactions, and choices you make in life. Navigating through relationships, career, and vocational opportunities, and achieving a state of "okayness" and contentment within yourselves require an awareness of the origins from which your current experiences have evolved. Inner healing work will enable you to evolve and move beyond your familiar ways of doing things while inviting in new experiences and opportunities.
Awareness and compassion are key to creating pathways for change.
