“The man is only half himself, the other half is his expression”
Ralph Waldo Emerson (“The Poet”)
When dealing with crises in our lives, it can feel as if we are lost in a fog or falling down a dark hole. We struggle to find our way back or pull ourselves out. At such times counselling and psychotherapy can help us transform our crises into opportunities to develop and grow. By exploring and listening carefully to what the problem says about us, we identify those unhealthy patterns and attitudes that paralyse our innermost desires, needs and creativity; we start searching for what defines us as individuals and, in doing this, we discover a more authentic and original way of understanding and relating to the world around us. This is the journey to a healthier expression of ourselves – The Road to Yourself.
