Making Friends With Our Emotions And Ourselves
Six Week Course
What Will We Do?
We’ll descend gradually below the surface and bring our attention and kind curiosity to our own emotional landscape. In the process you’ll discover how to deal with, manage and make friends with emotions in a safe, gentle, healthy way.
Together we’ll shine a light on all of the hidden places that keep us away from meeting, unravelling and finding the peace, acceptance and resolution that is so wanted.
The course content comes from a range of therapeutic methods and models including Mindfulness, Non-Duality, Self-Enquiry and Parts Work as well as from my own lived experience and understanding gained through supporting clients for the last ten years.
The approach is not about fixing, annihilating or transcending but becoming aware of what we are unaware of and then welcoming in what we find including the various parts and aspects of ourselves.
The course principles can be applied to anything that challenges us, whether that is physical pain, intrusive thoughts or life situations.
If you are a counsellor, therapist or healer you’ll discover some new techniques and ways to assist your clients.

Course Foundations And How To Get Closer To Our Emotions
We’ll lay down some founding principles for the course and bring awareness to the ways that we keep our emotions at bay.
Looking At Our Relationship With Emotions
This session will focus on our relationship to particular emotions and emotions in general and also provide some simple, grounded ways to peacefully approach them.
Getting Intimate And Making Friends
The next step in our process is welcoming back home and merging with these tender, often misunderstood parts of ourselves. Various perceptions and body sensing techniques will be offered.
Working With The Inner Child And The Characters We’ve assumed
So many of our challenging emotions and behaviours are familiar to us and lead back to an earlier time in our lives. In this session we’ll discover how to unravel these knots, heal these patterns and give the child what they always wanted.
An Exploration Of Opposites
We live in a dualistic world but what happens when we loosen our fixed hold on just one side of the story and welcome both sides in? Both good and bad, right and wrong, sadness and happiness? The entire range and vast spectrum of life?
Pulling It All Together
A week to recap, discuss and explore how all of this comes to life.
If you would like to get a taste for the course an introductory workshop is available.
