Inner Child work for post breakup depression
Coming out of a long-term relationship can leave us with a lost sense of self, similar to an identity crisis. Our navigation points are shifted and we have no idea where we are or what can possibly come next in our journey. Many of our participants find that this is the right time to begin a self-led therapy practice to reconnect with the authentic self, rediscover our soul journey and find excitement and wonder in putting the pieces together.
The emotions that are felt following a breakup are an echo from our childhood. The primary developmental needs of children follow us into our adulthood and are established in the relationships that we form. This can be seen in relationships where your rational mind has determined that the relationship is no longer serving our adult self, but there is an irrational side of emotion that is holding us where we are, hoping for the problems to resolve and for life to get better without the judgement, blame and complication of separation.
Inner Child work allows us to reestablish a confident sense of self, to identify our earliest dreams and step out into the world with fresh eyes to establish a new lifestyle that healthy serves our deepest needs. Inner Child work also allows us to reconnect with aspects of our childhood character through soul retrieval, read more about that here.
