Our human emotional healing is a continuous life long process.

A proper deep healing or our core wounds can truly start only when we are able to feel deep inside of ourselves, when we can allow another person to help us to discover, see, hear and feel all the suppressed and denied aspects of ourselves, when we can allow our conscious and subconscious beliefs to be challenged

One of the main causes of our emotional trauma isn’t only what happened to us when we were very little and very helpless, but also the fact we have repeatedly suffered alone, without anyone’s help, support, recognition, trust and love.
