Self-awareness about one’s personal history, beliefs, attitudes and perceptions are often an important first step to understanding “why do I feel/respond the way I do?” Still, your current life circumstances will always stay well within my focus. My work will always lend itself to answering the important questions: “What are my choices now?”; “Are there ways of engaging my life circumstance differently?”; and “How can I get myself to change that which is in my control to change?”
You can expect to:
- Talk about your distress without shame or fear of judgment.
- Learn the bio/physiological underpinnings of fear, anxiety, and depression.
- Learn how your own emotional responses can work for and against you.
- Identify your unconscious beliefs and learn how they influence how you perceive your world, your relationships, and the choices you make.
- Learn to distinguish your wants, needs, priorities and values from those of others around you.
- Learn how to calm your anxious arousal and replace it with an attitude of curiosity and experimentation.
- Learn to choose with confidence and self-awareness in face of incomplete information and unknowable consequence.
