Low self-esteem, feeling worthless or not good enough?

Low confidence, anxiety, issues with trusting others?

Inner Child

 

What if you were able to heal the pain from the past and be able to accept every part of who you are?

Reconnect with the part that playful, joyful, creative and intuitive child that you used to be.

Deep inside each of us there’s an inner child that was once wounded, lives in silence and is longing

 


Our inner child lives in our unconscious mind and influences how we live our lives, make choices, react, respond and believe in ourselves, causing relationship issues.


We all have our own experiences of hard times and difficulties from our childhood. We have been influenced by our parents, the people around us and our environment. Some have experienced childhood traumas including physical, mental, emotional or sexual abuse, domestic violence or abandonment. Others had their childhood emotional needs neglected, were isolated or felt alone. 


We try to forget those painful times, preferring to bury the feelings and memories deep down in our unconscious mind.  We commonly shut off from the sadness and despair, feeling guilt and shame, believing we are unloved and alone. 


This can cause us to believe that we are unlovable, not worthy or not good enough. As we grow older, we carry these false beliefs with us and they continue to influence our behaviour, often without our conscious awareness. No matter how old we are, how well we did, we feel it is never good enough, we unconsciously seek love, acceptance and approval.




How inner child therapy works?

Reconnect with a wounded element of ourselves

 

Through the use of breathing and relaxation techniques to induce the hypnotic state, we can reconnect with a wounded element of ourselves. As young children, we were not allowed to express our feelings, so we keep them locked up inside as adults, our child self still curled up for protection. They may be angry, upset or frightened, retreating and hiding from pain. 



Only when we start understanding the cause and effect relationship between what happened to the child that we were, and the effect it has had on the adult we have become, can we begin to repair and heal the wounds of the past.
