Areas of Practice
All of us struggle at times with overwhelming events: loss, personal tragedies, life transitions, forms of emotional or physical pain, and relationship difficulties. Given the many stressors we face, we can easily become overwhelmed, stressed out or afflicted by psychological symptoms.
Whether you are just beginning a relationship, or you have been in one for a long time, we all come up against certain, distinctly human struggles and difficulties.
Focusing is a powerful process that takes you beyond the limitations of your intellect to your innermost knowing. In this process you hold an open non-judging awareness of something that is not yet fully known but is distinctly felt by the body.
Wherever you are in the recovery process, there is help available. It can be overwhelming to sort through all the options, or even to know what choices are right for you.
We come into this world with a unique set of gifts. If we are nurtured and responded to while growing up, and there was a space made for our uniqueness, as well as our feelings, then we are more likely to lead fulfilling lives whereby this uniqueness can be realized.
