Emotional Therapy is a means of helping people who are suffering emotional turmoil in their lives. By supporting individuals in working through their feelings, therapists seek to help people heal original past emotional wounds, which are often at the root of current problems.
There is a volume of evidence suggesting that the suppression of emotions can lead to ill health, persistent unhappiness, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive behaviour, addictions, relationship problems, eating disorders, suicidal feelings, unhealthy excesses and many other related issues.
The therapist assists and supports the client by acknowledging, accepting and dealing with suppressed emotional pain in a healthy, integrated way.
Emotional Therapy has similarities with conventional counselling although there are also important differences. It holds the holistic premise that the spirit is of equal importance to the mind and body. As well as talking and listening, the therapy uses the individual’s own natural inner healing creativity, thus empowering them and bringing a greater self-knowledge and personal strength from which they can more effectively cope with, and enrich, their lives.
Its aim is to bring clients to that wholeness from which they can comfortably live their world and manage their lives.
