As a psychotherapist, I have very strong feelings about how quickly health care professionals prescribe anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications these days. I wonder why, as professionals, we are not making our client’s long-term health and well being our highest priority.
Let me tell you my story. I’ve been involved with Emotional Healing for thirty years. When I first entered an Emotional Healing therapy group as a client in the 1970s, it was a brand new field. I was anxious and depressed, but I didn’t know why. No one talked about emotions back then. The idea that you could get in touch with your emotions and express them to help you heal was outrageous to most people.
