The ache for home lives in all of us

The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.

-Maya Angelou

In schema therapy we try to determine what core needs were not met in childhood. Safety, love, empathy, and validation are examples of our core needs.

Where you stumble there lies your treasure

It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble there lies your treasure.

-Joseph Cambell

In the exploration phase of the schema approach we work with clients to address traumatic events or challenging situations that were present in childhood. These events have had great impact on all of the clients relationships. This exploration phase can be challenging and cathartic. It helps both therapist and client discover wounds that have lead to painful/uncomfortable situations and unhappiness.

Turn your wounds into wisdom

Turn your wounds into wisdom.

-Oprah Winfrey

Schema therapy is all about labeling the belief systems that form as a result of our childhood wounds. In schema therapy we try to determine what needs were not met in childhood. Safety, love, empathy and validation are all examples of our core needs. In childhood when we have unmet needs we then develop schemas or belief systems that lead to unhealthy relationships and discontent.
