“The energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”
As humans we all need connection. It is one of our basic human needs.
Connection is what I offer as a therapist. It’s the connection that is cultivated in the therapeutic relationship, between therapist and client, that creates a softening of defences and acknowledging within you allowing your own innate ability to heal.
Feeling a sense of connection may be a rare experience for you. This could be because you have experienced life and the world around you as a scary and unsafe place, which can lead to a sense of feeling disconnected from those people around you.
You may have learned you need to build protection from the world and others in order to keep yourself safe. You can imagine this protection is like a suit of armour which you put on to survive in the world. This armour came about to keep you safe – but at a cost – loss of connection with others.
I work with clients to help them discover their armour, why it’s there, what its purpose is and look for ways they can take their armour off safely in order to feel connection.
If you like the sound of this please get in touch to discuss how we may work together.
