BENEFITS OF PSYCHOTHERAPY
- Knowing and accepting own limitations. Accepting yourself, without demanding to be someone you are not.
“Your pain, your sorrow, your doubts, your longings, your fearful thoughts: they are not mistakes, and they are not asking to be 'healed'. They are asking to be held. Here, now, lightly, in the loving, healing arms of present awareness.”
- Jeff Foster
- Stopping the repetition of the behaviour that is damaging you or others. Letting go of rigid patterns and going with the flow of life. Resolving unresolved affairs and mourning.
“We make up an ideal character which we set as a target and we work all our lives to make it our mask.”
- Alejandro Jodorowsky
- Psychotherapy processes release you from physical, emotional and mental tension: feeling the sensations and movements of the body, conscious relaxation and breathing, connects us to the present moment. Practising the addressing of attention to what we feel and experience (not to what we think), to be doing what we are doing now or to be who we are with, interrupts mental debasement.
“Few of us have lost our minds, but most of us have long ago lost our emotions and bodies.“
- Ken Wilber
- Awakening your awareness of the ‘here and now’. Reconnecting to yourself, feeling capable, self-assured, creative, full of love, life and happiness. Being awake and curious about life. Living with greater awareness is the key to facing suffering, finding new answers to problems and recovering harmony. It is discovering, in each case, a place to regard life, others and yourself using your heart.
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
- Albert Einstein
