The Inner Child refers to your emotional body sometimes called the 'True Self' one of the four aspects in cognitive behavioural therapy. It was referred to as the 'Divine Child' by Jung, as the 'Wonder Child' by Emmet Fox and as the 'Child Within' by Charles Whitfield.
Our personalities emerge as a result of our genetic code, DNA, or inherited characteristics, and the environment in which we experience. Childhood is dictated by those who raise us and often causes scars that will take years to heal. For the most part, our issues go back to childhood and what impacted on our emotional and physical bodies at that time. The inner child remains with us all of our lives.
We all have an inner child, it’s the part of you that laughs at childish things, wants to buy, test and play with toys, play on swings or on trolleys in supermarkets. This child is still a very special part of you. We are all children at heart, innocently searching for our meaning in life.
During the therapy we will explore four stages of your childhood at each stage, we will explore your current behaviours, thoughts and emotions. This can indicate problems that stem from a particular period of your childhood being;
Eight Child types can be identified with many people moving between types or having multiple types at various stage of their Childhood. The types are Playful, Spoiled, Neglected, Abandoned, Fearful, Unbonded, Discounted and The Spiritual Child.
Toys, Photographs and Art activities all enhance your memories and are incorporated into the Hypnotic therapy session. The therapy often invokes laughter, sometimes tears but always excellent results.
Inner Child work can be offered as a day’s workshop, private party or as a series of private sessions.
