THE WEIGHT ON YOUR HANDS

A specific linguistic and visualisation technique designed primarily to bring together the parts of you that are at conflict. Conflict at any level is not good it can cause procrastination and obstruction, held for too long unresolved it can cause pain and dis-ease.

 

Does this sound familiar?

 

On one hand I ...... yet on the other I ...... 

Part of me wants to ...... and yet part of me doesn't. 

 

We all catch ourselves from time to time talking like this, don't we? How did we resolve it and was it for the best.

 

Never mind the weight on your mind! – It's the weight on your hands that you need to pay attention to!

 

Powerful, exploratory therapy for any conflict you hold.
