Here’s what directed, structured and results-driven therapy looks like:
01 The Intake
Here we’ll get to know as much of you as humanly possible in 50 minutes. We’ll ask you questions on all sorts of things, from sleep hygiene to your childhood, to get an idea of your history, symptoms, and goals. We’ll identify your global ‘limiting beliefs’ (the stuff that’s at the root of your concerns; e.g. “I am not good enough”) and develop a treatment plan.
Sessions 2 and 3
02 Identification of Limiting Beliefs
We’ll take a deep dive into your limiting beliefs and create an inventory. We’ll also determine your ‘dysfunctional needs’ that pop up in response to a specific limiting belief (e.g. striving for perfection). Together, we’ll determine which limiting belief to tackle to the ground first.
Sessions 4 and Beyond
Here, we’ll use bilateral stimulation to reprocess traumatic events and memories that are linked to limiting beliefs. This removes any emotion associated with the memory, thus removing the limiting belief. It sounds crazy, but trust us, it works.
You’ll find that you are engaging less with the stuff that once acted as a barrier (dysfunctional needs and opt-outs) to living your optimal life. Best of all, you’ll find an absence of response within yourself to things that used to trigger you, freeing you from the weight you once carried. You will finally take a step into your ideal reality.
You know what you’re getting, and how you’re getting it.
Your therapist will guide; you shouldn’t have to direct your own therapy.
We’ll help you figure out where to start, because sometimes you just don’t know.
You decide how many sessions you want. This depends on how ‘fit’ you want to be.
It’s goal-oriented and results-driven. This means we get stuff done.
