In the ‘Unlocking Us with Brene Brown’ podcast episode with modern relationship guru, Esther Perel (link attached below), Esther Perel shares “People come in with a story and hopefully they leave with a different story or with the possibility of a different story.” Sometimes our stories just need a witness to gain a new perspective.
In my counselling practice at Caulfield Natural Health Clinic, I welcome my clients to share their stories, whether they come as individuals or as a couple. Our sessions together are an opportunity to be heard and to be seen, to have the space to express thoughts and feelings, as they really are.
It is through communication that we learn to understand each other.
Brene Brown says: “Our stories are the data of our souls”. Without sharing them, others may not know, may not understand. We ourselves may not know or understand, and by expressing our data, we can gain clarity and insight into our own minds and feelings.
Without communication, our loved ones may get carried away with inaccurate imaginations, may misinterpret our messages. How sad would the following ‘True Love Story’ be if the boy hadn’t made the effort to express how he really felt?
It has been a year since I started at the wonderful CNHC. Thank you to all of you who have shared your stories with me over the past year. Thank you to all of my loyal clients who have referred others my way. Wishing you all a year filled with clear, caring and honest communication.
