A Soulful Perspective
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you. Maya Angelou
I believe that our symptoms point to aspects of the self or relationship that need attention, understanding, or transformation. Our symptoms are cries from the soul. Whether it’s depression or mid-life crisis your symptoms have a meaning. Firstly it’s important for you to develop the skills to learn to manage your symptoms. Of course, it’s perfectly natural that you want to stop being overwhelmed by them. Then it becomes possible to make fundamental changes in your life or relationship. In time, you can uncover the wisdom of the soul that’s hiding in the shadows of the pain. Sometimes it is in our deepest and darkest moments that we find the most potential.
Integrative Psychosynthesis is an approach which embraces all that you are. It works towards allowing you to have a deeper acceptance of all aspects of yourself, which in turn results in more meaningful and authentic relationships with others.
