THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT EMOTIONS


 
 

DO YOU...

  • struggle with understanding your emotions?
  • feel overwhelmed or distressed and not sure why?
  • have people say you are too sensitive or not sensitive enough?
  • struggle with not being able to sleep?
  • drink or eat too much?
  • feel your life is out of control?

 
If you answered “yes” to any one of the above questions you may need counselling.  I work with people using Emotion Focussed Therapy (EFT). The aim of EFT is to identify, explore, regulate, process, transform and integrate our experiences from an emotional perspective alongside reflective processing in order to elicit deep, effective, long lasting change.
 
Recent research confirms that our emotions influence psychological, cognitive, behavioural, biological and neurochemical system functioning.  Emotions interface between body and mind, are a primary signalling system and often arise outside of our awareness.  Emotions also precede our language-based knowing.
 
By coming to know ourselves from this emotional perspective we also learn to understand ourselves from a more evolutionary point of view.  It helps us understand why we do what we do and gives us tools and skills to manage life in a more aware way. We learn to process upsets and master our emotions in more adaptive ways.
