Inner Child


Inner Child Work refers to experiential therapy processes aimed at healing the 'wounded inner child' we unconsciously bring with us from childhood. This is the part of us that fears abandonment or vulnerability, is shamed, hurting, angry or vindictive, and which can create havoc in our adult lives. In healing the wounded child we liberate the healthy child to be a more dominant part of our being, e.g., joyful, feeling playful, spontaneous, curious and creative. MAGGIE DOWN
