Are you thinking too much? Worrying too much? Drinking too much? Staying in the bed all day?Ruminating? Self criticizing? Disconnecting from the world?Are you trying hard to breakthrough, but falling into the old pattern again and again? I understand how frustrating it is to be on this journey alone!
How I can help: 1. Breakthrough: identify your old coping mechanisms 2. Happier: build healthy alternative habits to get your needs met 3. Better study/work performance: you will love yourself the way you are and become a better self naturally. I’m good at supporting people from anxiety and despair to growth and self actualization.
I’d like to invite you to start a self exploring journey. This journey is definitely worth it! It might be an adventurous one, but I promise that you will not be alone. I will walk alongside you. Bit by bit, you will grow stronger and stronger. Together, let’s walk through the darkness. Just leave me a brief message for the initial consultation.
焦虑?紧张?上瘾?情绪低落?自卑?讨好别人忽略自己?尝试过很多种方法让自己改变,但是很快又回到过去的模式中?我明白这种感受,因为我也经历过!我们小时候的经历或多或少决定了我们现在的行为模式,比较常见的模式有:1. ‘‘求关注、求肯定’’模式。小时候没有得到关注,未经历过无条件被爱,长大后也大概率不知道如何在关系中表达爱,以至于通过冷战、暴力等极端方式表达自己的需求。2 ‘‘我不够好’’模式。小时候没有过情绪稳定的养育,未经历过从容持续的给养,长大后即便进入了一个稳定有爱的公司,我们的大脑也会依然主动地去寻找‘‘大家认为我不够好’’的线索,从而验证自己过去熟悉的经历。也因为大脑更愿意关注熟悉的‘‘旧有模式’’而屏蔽不熟悉的‘‘我值得被爱’’的证据,所以‘‘旧有模式’’很难靠自己的努力打破。目前最有效的方式是重新建立一个安全、稳定、鼓励、有爱的关系,在一段关系的互动中治愈那个小时候的自己。
我的专业技能和工作经验可以帮助你:1、提供一个安全的、绝对保密的、可以做自己的港湾。2、帮助你认识到自己的“旧有模式”,并学会用更加健康的方式满足自己的需求,从而不再依赖“旧有模式”。3、提升自信和幸福感,重新爱上自己。
这将是一个不断发现自己,认识自己,接纳自己的旅程。但我保证,你不是一个人。我会在你旁边,牵着你的手,一起突破黑暗,看见爱与光。
