Once in a while a client will come in that, on the surface, looks depressed. It doesn’t take long to realize the depth underneath. It’s not depression. It’s that they have gotten so small because of all the secrets they were conditioned to keep that they just don’t know who they are any more. And that’s where the work begins.
Wrap the story in self-compassion
Wrapping all the pain in self-compassion and replacing maladaptive coping skills with more self-compassionate ones is always the first place to start. Just finding a safe place to sit with the pain makes all the difference in the world.
Unpack the secrets
The healing is in the telling. Getting the secrets out into the light lessens the power they have in the mind. Often telling their story in session is the first time it’s ever been told – to anyone.
