I spent most of my life repressing my emotions as a coping strategy, and when I finally decided to let them back in, I was a mess.
But with repression no longer an option, I had to find another way of dealing with my emotions. After wading through a bunch of crap (boy is it a mess out there!), eventually I found a method of achieving inner peace without shutting my emotions down.
I began to figure out what was going on with my emotions, and how I could get them to work for me instead of against me.
In fact, I was so impressed with what I found - a comprehensive model of emotions firmly rooted in current research - that I decided to get trained in it.
In the process I learned something unexpected, something completely contrary to what everyone else seemed to be saying.
Your emotions are always trying to serve you, even when it feels like the exact opposite is true.
Even when they are causing major disruptions in your life!
Sometimes they seek to assist with your current situation, such as by setting boundaries or letting go of something that isn’t working for you anymore.
And sometimes your feelings are bringing up something in the past that needs to heal, especially when you get triggered into emotions that feel out of proportion to the present moment.
By figuring out what your unruly emotions are actually trying to do for you, they will begin to empower you instead of beating you down.
And that is precisely what I want for you.
