Life is challenging, and at times it can bring unusual emotional suffering that needs exploration and understanding. To work through these roadblocks​, we need someone non-judgmental who can listen with patience, empathy and undivided presence. Most of our traumas happen in relationships and the healing has to take place in this relational space, in an environment of emotional safety and trust. It is courageous to recognize that our vision of ourselves can have blind spot. We need mirroring from a thoughtful compassionate person who helps us rediscover freedom and authenticity in our relationships, work, and creative endeavors.
