“Polarity Counseling” Overview Guiding Principles
The goal of Polarity Therapy assessment is to figure out where to establish initial contact and what process might be most supportive; it is not about trying to determine what is “wrong” but rather how to get in sync with clients through recognition of their strategies for managing life experience.
Be gentle and gradual, in keeping with a natural process. Healing happens in the present more than the past; de-emphasize cause-and-effect thinking, pathologizing of conditions, excavating of past events, creating symbolic interpretations.
Having awareness is curative. Emphasize client self-responsibility & autonomy.
Polarity counseling* techniques are relaxed and open exploration that involves your own discovery with gentle unfolding. I hold a sacred space that allows your own inner awareness to blossom, while developing your own self-awareness, and assist you in self-observation.
I will help you discover your ability to be present with yourself & witness your own body's emotions & thoughts, sensations - skills that can be cultivated. .
As you strengthen & deepen your ability to be present and intimate within yourself, you will be building the foundation for creating & experiencing intimacy with others.
