“Accept your neurosis as your truest and most precious possession. Find out what it means, what it has to teach, what its function is.... we do not cure it - it cures us.” — C.G. Jung
Calling a therapist is an act of personal courage and self care
It means you are able to set your ego aside and be willing to ask for help. I will meet you more than half way in this process. Listening and helping you make sense of your pain is my primary job.
If you're suffering from PTSD or anxiety or depression or struggling with parenting or heartbreak or relationship or job stress - I can help you. I love my work of accompanying people on their journey from suffering to freedom.
My philosophy: The body can only take so much stress. Whatever emotional, relationship, work-related or environmental stress you don't process will be downloaded into your physical body as pain and eventually if not brought to consciousness and worked through will cause disease. Bringing to consciousness and expressing your concerns, unconscious harmful beliefs, traumatic experiences and suffering will change your life and improve your relationships and health.
Post Traumatic Stress
The story is a work of inspiring imagination but Plunket knows her Jungian psychology and esoteric philosophies. I was sad when I finished reading because I wanted to continue to feel the uplifting spirit of the book, especially in these dark times.
