The need to be heard, understood, validated, including expressing yourself without prejudice, judgment, criticism or interruption is universal and physiological.
Suppressing our voice, ideas, concerns, emotions, and stress; the consequences can be emotionally, physically, socially, economically, even professionally damaging. Whom we confide in often impacts the outcome of the conversation, whether personally or professionally. Not expressing ourselves stunts our growth, happiness, and health. I am not a social worker, psychiatrist, doctor, or priest but a genuine and empathetic Professional Listener & Confidant. First and foremost, your session is your time. Providing a space where anyone can express themselves safely is my priority. I listen to understand and offer needed validation. I am not waiting to respond, share my opinion, or impatient. Real communication requires specific skill, desire, empathy, and patience. The result is a genuine connection; weight lifted, mental clarity, a profound sense of healing and support. And only then, when I am asked, I can provide advisement, mentoring, and even perspective.
The majority of my clients have gone down the rabbit hole of health care, both western and alternative. They diligently stuck to whatever health care program they were prescribed, including rigid diets, detox regimes, medications, supplements, antibiotics, Rife, biofeedback, acupuncture, chiropractic care, and more. They were left frustrated with limited results. Why does one person respond well to a treatment but you or someone you love do not. Why do clean diets dramatically improve the health of one person and have no significant benefit of the other? Why do vitamin and herbal supplements increase the energy and health of one person and do nothing for the other?
So much attention is given to cures, techniques, and tools that the critical component is overlooked, the individual. Their whole life experience, environment, perceptions, unresolved traumatic experiences, childhood emotional neglect, and subconscious beliefs or programming, leaving an individual in a “flight or fight” response or stress response. The subconscious stress response often occurs without one being consciously aware of it. Eventually, what is emotionally suppressed will be physically expressed. When you’re in a chronic low-grade stress response, your immune system is suppressed, digestive strength is reduced, memory is affected, pain sensitivity is increased, and self-healing/self-regulatory functions are decreased or turned off. Regardless of any health and wellness program, you incorporate, no matter how good or valid, the results can be minimal. Some clients preferred conversations that focused on my experience and research into:
Adverse childhood experiences
Anxiety / depression
Death of a loved one
Subconscious stress response
