What is PsychSense Psychotherapy about?
We all need to be heard and understood but with a reactive or silent partner this appears impossible for either. The question that seems so difficult to answer is often, “How do I communicate, listen, understand or move into my partner’s space, without losing myself in the process? What about me? I am also in pain!
Initially the counselling process is about experiencing a dialogue that de-escalates conflict, through a process and technique that encourages differentiation or keeping my sense of who I am while still being present for another.
Couple’s are encouraged to experience understanding and being understood by stepping into their partner’s world. As couple's share their individual stories, understanding is gained of how unmet needs and learnt childhood patterns continue to impact on current relationships with both partners and friends. Empathy is able to grow as understanding is gained without the expectation that 'my partner must fix me' or 'I need to fix them'.
Being present to the other is about listening, reflecting and communicating what/where you are and what/where I am with understanding and support rather than expectation, conflict, disagreement, judgement, anger, fear, depression or abandonment.
“Millions of people are suffering: they want to be loved but they don't know how to love. And love cannot exist as a monologue; it is a dialogue, a very harmonious dialogue.” Osho (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh).
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.
