DESCRIPTION OF CLINICAL PRACTICE
It can be so tempting to deny or fight against parts of ourselves we don't like. But this rarely works. More helpful is learning how to relate to these parts with curiosity and compassion so they are less likely to hold us back from the changes we want to make. Before we can change something it is often necessary to first discover what holds it in place. One of my jobs as a therapist is to help guide you through this discovery process using a variety of methods tailored to suit your particular needs.
