How I work
I have been a therapist for 30 years and specialise in assisting clients in removing the bad feelings from past traumatic experiences which are affecting their feelings and behaviour in the present. Sometimes the connection is very obvious: clients complain of nightmares and flashbacks, and keep going over the past events compulsively in their heads, thus feeling the bad feelings all over again.
What counts as a Traumatic Experience?
Any experiences that cause distress can be considered traumatic. For example, being the victim of crime or accident, or a natural disaster, or suffering bereavement or divorce. Having uncaring or abusive parents or partners can also leave you with an aftermath of bad feelings such as anger, depression or guilt. These remnants need to heal so that you can get on with enjoying your life.
Sometimes the link to the trauma is less obvious, and clients complain that they lose their tempers unpredictably and sometimes violently, have bouts of depression and feeling helpless, worry unreasonably or unnecessarily about the future, or suffer from insomnia.
All problems are learned habits!
A good way to think about our negative reactions is that they are “knee-jerk” learned patterns, initiated out of conscious control so we feel we can’t stop feeling guilty, angry, depressed, stressed, worried, thinking negatively (always looking on the black side of life), and having arguments with our friends and those closest to us. These reactions are learned – we were not born like this – and they can be unlearned, and then more useful ways of feeling and behaving become possible. In my therapy I use a select number of effective techniques to help clients get beyond these negative ways of being.
We are not our negative feelings and behaviours
When we realise that there is an aspect of self which is untainted by our negative learned habits, we lose nothing by getting rid of them. The inner true self is not happy with feeling/behaving in negative and painful ways, and when these negative patterns go you can begin to live your life with more satisfaction and grace, and to the delight of the part of us inside that strives to find fulfillment in life.
