That Discomfort You’re Feeling Is Grief

This article in the Harvard Business Review by Scott Berinato, speaks evocatively of grief, an emotion generally difficult to access in all its forms. It often surfaces in its forms of sadness and loss after working with the more apparent feelings of worry, fear, frustration, annoyance, anger.

This is very apparent to me as a psychotherapist when working with clients who present with anxiety, fear, panic attacks, anger issues. These layers of emotions surface consistently thanks to the effectiveness of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), which I integrate into my practice along with talk therapy.

David Kessler says in the article, “Acceptance, as you might imagine, is where the power lies”. He’s absolutely right, and acceptance is the first port of call and a powerful aspect of EFT (Emotional freedom Techniques).

Kessler also talks about coming “into the present” to deal with the pain of grief. When we use EFT we focus on noticing how we are feeling right now, which brings us into the present very quickly.

In my experience there is nothing as powerfully effective as EFT to help access feelings and process our emotions. EFT is my answer to the ‘HOW’ asked in the article.

The Relevance of Energy

Uncategorized No comments

Emotion = “E-motion” = Energy in Motion

Our thoughts, our emotions and even our interactions, are all made up of energy.

Emotion (energy) needs to flow, and when we suppress, deny or or even over-express our feelings, our energies (emotions) stay trapped and discomfort deepens. Believe it or not, it takes energy to suppress bad feelings, as well as to forcefully express them. In the long run, non-resolution leaves us feeling depleted, resulting in low moods, anger, depression, anxieties, illnesses.

Healing and resolution rarely occur unless we recognise and address our problems; as the saying goes, “what we resist, persists“.

When we are able to acknowledge, address and resolve, our energy flows dynamically, and we feel better, work better, love better and live better.

In my practice as an Integrative counsellor, I focus on a mind-body-social approach to therapy. I combine EFT tapping and somatic therapies with traditional talk therapy to assist you in resolving your difficulties and concerns.

Healing Trauma: What it Really Takes to Liberate your Brilliance — Womb Of Light

Uncategorized 1 comment

As children we were wide open and vulnerable, without boundaries and depending completely on adults for survival. It’s inevitable that as children we experienced some degree of trauma. This is unavoidable; part and parcel of being human. Some of us experienced trauma through a form of actual abuse and some of us just by virtue […]
