"A mind that is stretched by a new experience
can never go back to its old dimensions."
Oliver Wendell Holmes
We need new emotional experiences, not new insights! It's a scientific fact that cognitive insight alone, no matter how brilliant, cannot "stretch" the mind to new dimensions. This is why I'm so enthusiastic and passionate about practicing Experiential Dynamic Therapy, a cutting-edge, evidence-based, accelerated method proven to produce effective and lasting life transformation. Many of my clients report a feeling of hope and momentum even after our first session!
One important way this model diverges from traditional psychotherapy is that it emphasizes emotional experiencing in our sessions — rather than continuing the avoidance of feeling your healthy core emotions. It is well documented that simply talking about emotions is not sufficient to bring about real and lasting change.
There's another significant way this model differs from others. It's intensive. It's not for everyone! It requires that both you and I put 100% effort toward achieving your goals. It is hard, sometimes painful work and requires grit. As the great philosopher Lao Tzu wisely noted, "New BEGINNINGS are often DISGUISED as painful ENDINGS."
So — if you find yourself repeating self-defeating patterns of behavior, feel emotionally stuck — or notice that your current therapy isn't really helping you genuinely shift your thinking, improve your mood and "come home" to yourself, I invite you to consider giving Experiential Dynamic Therapy a chance to change your life. Witness for yourself the incredible healing power of this model and why it has won over so many clients and clinicians worldwide!
