So, you’ve reached a point where …
- something is ‘just not right’
- there’s a need for a change (But what? And how do you make such a change?)
- you can’t take it (Whatever ‘it’ or ‘this’ is?) anymore!
You may even be thinking … I was meant for something more than this!
Whether it is depression, anxiety, past abuse or trauma, anger, grief, addiction, patterns of dysfunctional relationships, and even body symptoms, there is something deeper going on that is trying to get your attention.
People develop symptoms and experience suffering when they are stuck in old patterns. Patterns that are usual established in childhood, consciously or unconsciously. The task is to turn towards and befriend these symptoms, despite the pain they bring – they are not to be ignored or medicated away. Regardless of the diagnosis or symptoms, you are being asked to make a change.
There is no illness that is not at the same time an unsuccessful attempt at a cure.
– C.G. Jung
At these times you are asked to …
- go deeper into your self. You are asked to sift and sort through beliefs, feelings, roles and behaviours. Find out more about How I Work.
- explore who you truly are. You determine what qualities no longer serve your soul, letting go in order for new qualities and energy to enter your life.
- Ask yourself … “Who am I?” and “What do I want?”
You will …
- learn insights into past and current behaviour
- clear up past emotions and negative beliefs
- make more meaningful decisions based upon what you truly want
- become more empowered to live the life you imagine
