The desire to feel good emotionally and be at ease in your body is a core human drive. Yet, it can be difficult to attain and sustain. Relationship breakdowns, conflict, sudden changes in life resulting in overwhelm, unexpected loss and crisis can trigger intense emotions that feel so unmanageable and uncomfortable.
Conversely chronic unhealed trauma, aloneness, disconnection and depression can result in a kind of emotional shutdown and numbness that leaves you flat, unmotivated and disengaged. Both types of experiences, if they remain unresolved, necessitate a reaching out for support.
It is in the relating space where you are being held, understood and seen that things change. It is in the compassionate presence of another that what has been missing can now be received. It is in the vulnerability of connecting with yourself where your strength can return and your grounding and confidence can be regained.
