The Importance of Relationship
Many people enter therapy due to a lack of satisfaction in relationships. Given that we are all social beings, our patterns of relating influence our lives significantly. As part of therapy, we may discuss how your ways of relating inform your perceptions and interactions as well as determine your means of self-protection and needs for emotional intimacy. Often established in childhood, these patterns are learned from cultural contexts and formulated in reaction to stable or unstable relationships with parents or primary caregivers.
Part of the therapy process may be to consider the communications between you and I to understand how of these patterns present themselves in relationship.
Early Relational Trauma
Early relational trauma may be an elusive element behind your life’s difficulties. As a child, you may have experienced outright abuse or more subtle types of abuse such as being ignored, controlled, demeaned or made to witness abuse of others. These types of abuses interrupt the ability to build a solid sense of self and the flexibility needed to create trusting and secure relationships. If you experienced any of these types of abuses, you and I can focus our attention on shifting your ways of relating so that they are more satisfying to you.
