Foundation of Well-Being 02
Dear Brave Therapy™ Friend, We face challenges every day. While fixing a particular problem helps in any given moment, more obstacles eventually arise, and we’re left feeling overwhelmed, stressed, irritable, and depleted. You’ve probably seen this yourself. Much research has shown that the real path to lasting joy, satisfaction, and inner peace… is to build … read more
Celebrating Mother’s Day, from the Rebel Fairy
Guest post from the Rebel Fairy In celebration of Mother’s Day and all the love and generosity our mothers may give us, let’s send some acknowledgment to the Mother of all Mothers, Earth! There isn’t anyone as patient, forgiving and generous as Mother Earth. It’s quite incredible to think about how literally everything we need … read more
One of these mornings I woke up with a sense of dread. Feeling the stresses of our ‘new normal’; the way we have to think about wearing masks and hand sanitizers. Feeling the pain of lack of real, face-to-face connection with loved ones. Dealing with the general ‘I am over it’ attitude from basically everyone. … read more
Join Dr. Rick Hanson in a live, online Relationship Workshop
Hello Brave Friends, Our relationships give us most of our joys – and most of our sorrows. They can comfort and lift you, and they can stress and hurt you. As we deal with the coronavirus, it’s more important than ever to have solid, healthy, fulfilling relationships . . . and to mend and resolve … read more
Resources for the lockdown
Strange times we live in. Waking up each morning, listening to the birds, whom are becoming louder as the traffic reduces, I am thinking the same as many of you: and other day in the lock down….. It has been not easy to try to find the new rhythm of things. What I have learnt … read more
Wishing Everyone a Safe, Peaceful and Rich in Connection New Year!
Somehow just wishing Happy New Year does not fit today. Our country is burning. The Earth is in distress, I think she might be outraged. For many of us, loved ones; family and animals are in danger of the fires. It is hard to celebrate. So to bring Joy to myself today, I am choosing … read more
National Psychotherapy Day
For the national psychotherapy day I put together a little questionnaire to ask about experiences in therapy. The themes that came up were not surprising to me. Most people who answered the questions were appreciating their therapy experiences. Naturally there would be a bias because most people who this questionnaire reached are interested in psychotherapy. … read more
3 of My Favorite Resources for Loving Relationship
As a psychotherapist, I find that the most common reason clients come to therapy is related to unhappiness in their relationship. Sometimes there are simple communication problems that can be changed in a few sessions, but more often there are deep-seated issues. Our early experiences in life can create patterns of relating that last through … read more
Practicing Shame Resilience
http://www.childhoodtrauma.org.au/2015/august/practicing-shame-resilience Shame is not easy to talk about. It is a powerful emotion and can have trans-generational effects if it is not talked about and processed (Bradshaw, 1988). In order to develop a sense of worth, we need to have a parental figure giving our experience value. (Meares, 2005). If this is lacking, we believe … read more
A Desire Map Program for the New Year!
The word “resolution” is rooted in a beautiful idea that’s nearly 700 years old: in Latin, it means the process of reducing things into simpler forms. Mmmhmm. We’ve gotten lost on the way to New Year’s resolutions, didn’t we? There’s a much better way to create the year you want. No baggage, less striving. More … read more
I love this quote. I feel it in my body, know it in my heart. Unfortunately there is so much disconnection in our lives and I find the current political tension is further dividing. In my practice one of the biggest theme that is surfacing is: loneliness. Loneliness and isolation is negatively effecting our physical … read more
Examining our life and developing our sense of self with compassion and love takes time and effort.
Dear Brave Friends, I am sending you this nice warming image in this ‘cold winter’ morning. I am originally from Hungary so I still feel spoiled by our beautiful winter here in Sydney 🙂 The quote on the picture is from a book I read recently: The Examined Life, by Stephen Grosz. Such a beautiful … read more
My Desire Map workshops start… NOW!
My Desire Map workshops start… NOW! The Desire Map started out as a book, written by Danielle LaPorte. From there, it became the driver of over 500 book clubs around the world. At the heart of it all? A commitment to feeling good. Cynics would say that choosing to place your focus on feeling good … read more
Thoughts on religion
In the wake of the horrific terror attacks yesterday in Paris, there is a lot of talk on religion. Growing up in communist Hungary in a Presbyterian aristocratic family, my experience of religion was minimal. My grandfather who was a presbyter read the story of little Jesus being born at Christmas, and he told me … read more
