All forms of therapy, Counselling & Coaching involve observation of the self, as naked emotional beings. Without total honesty the desire for truth & innocence over shame, guilt and ego, the journey will be fraught with obstacles. Take courage and tell the truth faster.
This is the only spirit required to begin the journey of change.
We all have a working idea of the self, we know ‘who we are ‘ or think we do. Our identity is often based on our work status or the visual – not the unseen emotional spread.
We understand that we possess an individual identity, that it matters greatly to us, and that it is one of the means by which we function in society. This personal identity is complex. It is made up of traits that we are born with and views that we acquire as we go through life. Some aspects of our identity are essentially permanent, others are subject to change. Identification for official purposes is often controversial because it does not acknowledge this complexity and variability.
Authority’s challenge ‘Who are you?’ is easily satisfied with a signature or a PIN number. The deeper question ‘who, really, am I?’ remains much harder to answer.
