Psychotherapy: The Art of Emotional Freedom

“The boundary to what we can accept is the boundary to our freedom.” (a Buddhist teacher)

We have all experienced a lot of emotional pains such as hurt, anger, loneliness, anxiety and so on. Our emotional reaction to unpleasant events is shaped by our past experiences that have hurt us.

As a result we have learned to suppress, deny, gloss over or ignore our honest feelings so as not to feel them. We needed to do so for managing ourselves and relationships with others.

Although avoidance may protect ourselves from possible hurts temporarily, we pay the high price for suppressing our true self.

When we bottle up our feelings, it exhausts huge emotional energy within us.

The suppression of our emotional response can lead to mental illness and emotional difficulties.

The pain of not being able to express our true self is at the root of emotional difficulties.

Healing begins with cultivating an open and empathetic presence with our inner experience.

An important part of healing lies in recognising and accepting whatever emotions spontaneously arise from within in the present moment.

Unconditional self-acceptance leads to emotional freedom. 

Things will begin to improve as how we feel about ourselves changes.

Psychotherapy is the art of emotional freedom.

Psychotherapy is an experiential learning of nurturing self-acceptance.
