Authentic Self

Finding out who we really are is the first step to becoming our authentic selves.  Years ago when I had an Irish Setter  I went to a lecture by a dog trainer.  A woman stood up in the audience and said to the trainer that her dog ate like a horse and ran and swam and seemed anxious all the time.  What can I do, she asked.  The trainer answered:  “You’re describing an Irish Setter”.   Moral of the story?  Identify and take responsibility for what you’ve got and deal with the reality.   In simple terms this describes what my clients and I do together in my psychotherapy practice.  We identify, we  get to what needs to be done to fix whatever’s not working for you,  and then, together, we  turn our direction towards tomorrow.
