In our unconscious are all the memories that shaped our heart and our life. They are almost immovable, solid, refusing to budge. Yet they generate our fears and motive our goals. They form our personality which replaces and holds the place of our authentic identity.
Experienced psychotherapists must understand how to find the unconscious roots and core beliefs that generate problem patterns and how to defuse them.
George is experienced in finding a way for my heart to yield those root issues and how to reduce their potency.
Together we will unlock your emotional brain and let it find ways to edit old scripts. This allows you to begin to rewrite your life plan and get new perspectives on your life.
Couple Therapy with George
Couples can self-repair if they can get reunited as a team. The first step toward that is listening to one another. But most couples do not listen to the other and that is certainly true of couple that come to me for marriage counselling. That is why most couples say they have a problem with communication.
Listening. That is where it starts. 'I see you.' Really seeing the other brings connection.
But our walls stand in the way. Behind our walls is our hurt, memories being recycled, and our anger.
As the couple counsellor listens and understands. We begin to soften and learn to listen too.
It helps that the therapist listens while we are still angry and hurting. As we soften eventually we can ask forgiveness with sincerity and empathy. This triggers softening of our hearts toward one another. A t that point reconciliation and bonding comes.
When healing comes we suddenly see our partner in new light. We see a friend. We can listen to. Our partner can see us. We pull pull together as a team.
Now we can enter the flow of life and love and handle life together.
A wise caring counsellor is the shepherd and guide we need when in a times of crisis, turmoil, divorce, affair, or nervous breakdown.
We begin to find our footing as he listens. The therapists in depth understanding without a hint of judgement helps us to find the path.
Good support is essential for mental health and clear thinking when in the dark valleys of life.
When new perspectives occur to us there is even laughter.
Things get clearer. We get calmer.
George is experienced in Systematic Desensitization of Test Anxiety, Social Anxiety and others.
