“Concern should drive us into action, not into a depression.”~ Karen Horney
Mind – Body Connection
You cannot change your past, but you can change your attitude. Learning to accept past experiences will release the energy from previous conflicts, to use in creating a new life for yourself. The suffering of the soul causes bodily suffering. Your history, misfortunes and distress, all leave impressions in your flesh and manifest as aches and pains and other physical ailments. In order to free yourself of any suffering, it is necessary to re-connect with your body, and allow it to express itself.
Your Life In Focus
During the initial consultation, Karine will ask questions about the nature of the concerns that led you to her, whether it involves symptoms of emotional distress or relationship or family problems. In addition, she will be asking some general questions about your life situation, your family structure and your past. It is not possible to understand a person just by focusing on the presenting problem. It is also necessary to have some general knowledge to establish a framework within which to understand a person’s life and issues.
During therapy, Karine gives special attention to the expression of the unconscious; the sense that you want to give to your life; the integrations you seek to achieve and want to realize about your personal and social reality. The more you are able or willing to reveal to her about your concerns, feelings and experience, the more she will be able to understand them and offer some effective help.
You will be encouraged to express yourself verbally and emotionally in a safe environment, with Karine’s unconditional support and compassion as your therapist. The human being does not summarize itself with thoughts; but by the union of the thoughts, the emotions, and the body. It is necessary to connect all of these parts in order to create balance and harmony throughout the whole person.
“Nothing that happens is an isolated event; it only appears to be.”~ Eckhart Tolle
