My Approach to Helping
Susana Gaia is trained to assist a person understand what informs emotional experience and patterns of behavior. This is achieved by focusing on the client's decision making, influenced by forces beyond immediate awareness, such as the dynamics surrounding upbringing, trauma, losses and ingrained relational patterns. Once these dynamic forces are brought to light, the individual can feel empowered by a stronger sense of self and autonomy. It is a journey worth undertaking for the potential of increased self-awareness that co-relates with decreased mood symptoms and improvement in overall wellbeing and functioning.
