What is Emotional Therapy?
Whenever we are unable to express how we really feel, especially during childhood, we bury this emotion in our unconscious and, more often than not, our physical bodies. We then carry this baggage with us throughout our lives, merely putting up with the pain and discomfort that ensues. Indeed, evidence has shown that the suppression of emotions can create persistent unhappiness, ill health, family discord, unhealthy excesses and anxiety.
Emotional Therapy promotes healing of the original emotional wounds by working through the feelings, and safely releasing the troublesome emotions that have been buried. As a result, this helps us to come to terms with any emotional turmoil we may currently be experiencing, be that as a result of a crisis, a long-term situation or difficulties in relating to others.|
By working with the emotions and the inner child, Emotional Therapy can help us to develop a greater self-knowledge and personal strength, bringing us to that wholeness from which we can comfortably manage, and even enrich, our lives.|
How I work with my clients as an Emotional Therapist
Since qualifying in 1998, I have successfully worked with many clients suffering from issues such as stress, bullying, panic attacks,
addictions, bereavement/loss, depression, all forms of abuse, low self-esteem and adult children of alcoholics.
Feedback from my Emotional Therapy clients
I work with my clients on an individual, private and totally confidential basis, usually at a Therapy Centre in the South
Shropshire/Powys area. Sessions are carried out on a one-to-one basis, other than when working with couples, or children with their parents. Telephone sessions are also possible for those who live further afield.
Sessions are usually of 1 hour's duration, but can be extended as necessary and appropriate. Indeed, I find that longer sessions work well with those who choose to travel a distance to see me.
Emotional Therapy works well with anyone over 20 years of age, but, as I also work with the handwriting (where possible), this means that teenagers and even young children can benefit from potential problems being solved before they become issues. Furthermore, my knowledge of Graphology (See
What is Graphology?) and various associated psychological theories provides additional guidance in understanding my clients' emotional problems.
Is Emotional Therapy appropriate for you?
Just think for a moment about how you are today. Are you?
feeling extremely stressed or worried?
feeling depressed or constantly unhappy?
feeling worn out and exhausted by life?
feeling unable to cope in a crisis?
suffering from loss or bereavement, either recently or in the past?
having problems with relationships with your spouse, partner, boss?
suffering from persistent pain?
Any of these symptoms, and others, can be caused by suppressed emotions. If they are causing concern either to you, or those you love, then Emotional Therapy will help to release the underlying cause that creates these symptoms.
From April 2013, the Foundation for Emotional Therapy changed its name to the Foundation for Emotional Therapeutic Counselling. However, this change has not affected the way that Anne works with her clients.
