Recovery from a Head Injury

Recovery from a Head Injury

My client is an accomplished author and public speaker.  One day, as she was walking along, she fell and hit her head on the concrete.   As a result, she felt a lot more fatigue and would need to nap regularly.  Her most troubling symptom was with her typing.   After the fall, she was constantly making spelling errors and adding extra spaces to just about every word. She was getting frustrated about all the errors she was making.

Would she be able to have a recovery from a head injury?

The doctors told her it would take 3 months to recover from her’s.  But she didn’t have the option of taking 3 months off of work.   Her income depended on her ability to be healthy.

What happened when we released barriers for a faster recovery?

Is the Opposite of Addiction Connection? Exploring the Root Causes of Addictions

Is the Opposite of Addiction Connection?  Exploring the Root Causes of Addictions

The author of Chasing the Scream, Johann Hari states: “The opposite of addiction isn’t sobriety – it’s connection”.

But can the causes of addictions be reduced down to just one simple reason?

In his TED talk, titled “Everything You Think You Know About Addiction is Wrong”, Hari argues that there is an underlying cause to addiction that isn’t being sufficiently addressed with addicts. He states that the current war on drugs does little to address what he says is the key underlying cause of addiction in the first place:   The lack of connection and profound loneliness that perpetuates their behavior.

What is the evidence he uses to support this argument?

Healthy Choices Made Easy

Terry came to me concerned about her weight. She had lost 40Ibs through weight watchers, but she was constantly worried about gaining it back, and she wanted to lose 30Ibs more.   She would get intense and regular cravings for salty foods and sweets, and was always thinking about food.   Then when she would eat, she found herself eating far more than she should have, whether it was at restaurants with friends, or at home alone.   At the worst of her eating habits, she could gain weight very fast. Just before we addressed this issue she had gained 11Ibs in 2 weeks!

How to Have a Conscious Relationship

How to Have a Conscious Relationship

When I fell in love with my boyfriend, I could only see the good in him. He was funny, warm, generous, and kind, and I allowed that first impression to be sealed into my brain. I made assumptions based on what I initially saw about his capacity to love and be loving. I formed expectations from him based on my imagined reality that he would never do anything to hurt me. I made assumptions that he would treat me in the ways that I expected and hoped to be treated.

All these assumptions that I made ended up hurting me tremendously when I discovered he wasn’t all I had wanted him to be.

When we first meet people, we have a tendency to

Finally Getting Support

Finally Getting Support

I have a client that wanted to break up with a guy that she was dating.  All I knew was that she didn’t feel like he was good for her.   We released subconscious barriers to make that easy for her, and we ended up mostly releasing despair around not getting support she needed.

The following week when I checked on her, she was smiling.
