"You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection." Buddha
Clients may present with:
Depression, eating disorders, over-reaction to criticism, addictions, relationship issues, anxiety, stress, panic attacks, anger, rage, fear, abusive behaviour grief and loss, lack of self worth, not feeling connected with themselves or others, or simply a lack of passion for life. These sufferings can be viewed as defences against feeling the pain of loss. Many issues that we experience are a reflection of either trauma or unhelpful beliefs often brought on by having unavailable or inaccessible primary care givers in our formative years. As we explore and begin to understand these lost parts of ourselves, grieve over the loss and look at our unconscious thought patterns around these experiences, the opportunity is presented for developing new and more helpful ways of thinking and being.
