Many of us have experienced trauma at some point. The challenge comes when we are adversely impacted by those events. Research has shown there is a connection with the traumatic events and our physical body. Brainspotting can provide an avenue for many people to heal, by allowing the brain to process the trauma out of your body. We can explore if this treatment could be right for you.
A parent's heart longs to help their children in every possible way. The problem arises when we attempt to correct each misstep our children make, in an effort to "do our duty." We unwittingly undermine our ability to influence them for good- especially as they enter their teens. Often, our personal histories rise up and get in the way of our desire to help them. It is often necessary to resolve our personal issues and histories first, so that we can become more effective as loving parents. Oh, to find the path of helping them, and not hurting them. I have noticed, over the years, that most parents want what is best for their children.
