Sometimes just stopping and being peaceful gives us an insight into what we really could be doing to help ourselves best.
Yes, you did read that right… I said help ourselves best. We cannot effectively look after others when we are drained and exhausted physically, mentally and emotionally.
I work with lots of clients who come to me with problems and addictions just because they are drained by looking after others rather than themselves. Taking time to discover the power of stopping and being peaceful actually gives them more energy to help others. And yes, I can come into that group too if I don’t take care of myself.
My stopping and being peaceful is usually a spell just sitting or lying on my old swinging seat in the garden. I put it under a pergola so that is dry all year and I can pile it with cushions. In summer it is covered by a wisteria vine and surrounded by big pot plants so that it feels like a cool green cave. In winter the leaves are off the vine and as it faces north it is a sun trap. Sometimes I read but often I just stop, relax and catch up with myself.
It is when I am being peaceful that I often get the insight to write a newsletter or during the covid lockup at the start of the year I was able to write my two online therapies. These provide you with my therapy for weight loss and for trauma and anxiety plus a lot of additional background physiology to help you understand why problems occur. And there is a module teaching you self-hypnosis as well.
The very real benefit of the online program is that you can use it at any time of the day or night that fits in with your life and the downside of the online programs is that you actually need to use them.
These two online programs combine with face-to-face therapy to provide three choices.
- Online therapy only with is very low priced and can be paid over 10 months using an automatic PayPal system
- You can choose online plus one or two face-to-face sessions where you pay an extra $250 for each session or
- Face-to-face sessions for the same price I have always charged plus I add the online therapy for no extra. Again, payment terms can be arranged.
