Dealing with fear, anxiety and low-self esteem can be an heavy task if you do it all by yourself or only relying on talkative therapy. We propose a therapeutic body-oriented approach in which you will be involved in group workshops and/or individual sessions to release the emotions and feelings at the core of these issues. This process of unblocking grants you grounding, confidence and makes you feel more open and relaxed. We work with English-speaking clients mainly in Amsterdam and online.
How to deal with fear and low self-esteem?
We use a variety of body-oriented techniques like Bioenergetics, Self-holding, empowering exercises like Voice-liberation and Screaming therapy and different types of Breathwork and Relaxation techniques.
Those who are feeling weighed down by emotions will require more intense exercises for these heavy feelings to be discharged and others need soft exercises to release more subtle feelings. We tailor-made them for you to give you the best possible outcome.
Here a video of Bioenergetics to reduce symptoms of anxiety and re-establish the flow of emotions and feelings in the body:
What are Anxiety and Fear?
Anxiety is the result of the inner struggle between suppressed emotions that push to come out and the mental and physical resistances that you consciously or unconsciously apply against them. Anxiety is the first layer, under which we find the emotion of Fear which is always the result of a “No” to deeper emotions, in fact Fear is always of something: Pain, Anger, deeper Fears, Guilt, Shame, Pleasure etc. The last layer or core under these emotions is made of our foundation: Love and happiness. Delivering your body-mind from the heavy duty of carrying such a heavy load of suppressed emotions, brings you naturally to feeling this layer / core of your Being.
What is Low-Self esteem?
Low self-esteem is a series of negative judgments about yourself believed in for decades, which produce emotions such as guilt and shame. Guilt means:“What I Do is wrong”; Shame means:“What I Am is wrong”. Low self-esteem has anger and emotional pain at its core, as result of being hurt voluntarily or accidentally by your loved ones. You then automatically draw the conclusion that if they did so it must be your fault: “I am not good enough”‘, “I am not lovable”, “I am worthless” etc. This happens because the child-self cannot believe that the god-parents can make mistakes and protects their image of perfection in this way.
