One of the keys to healing is to be gentle and compassionate with the hurting parts of ourselves. By befriending these parts, we can find out what they need and heal them. From an appreciative, self-loving place we can work with instead of against ourselves to find much more satisfying solutions in our lives. The work we do is very feeling and experientially oriented. It can be quiet and inward, gentle and nurturing or intense and challenging and it is always held within a respectful and caring perspective. The goal of this therapy is to get in touch with our true selves and reclaim our aliveness. This leads to a fuller, more creative and satisfying life period.
