EACH THERAPY HAS ITS OWN LIMITS

The following excerpt is from the self help
psychology book, Be Your Own Therapist.


To say that favorite therapy Brand X has limits will sometimes not be accepted by either clients or therapists following X's path. It makes sense that exploring X's areas of therapy deeply will dictate less exploration in other areas. But followers of Brand X will often label some other explorations impossible or irrelevant.


It is impossible to live pleasureably without living wisely, well, and justly; and impossible to live wisely, well, and justly without living pleasureably..... Epicurus 341-270 B.C.

One current such "impossibility" is not impossible at all, namely the resolution of trauma from the first two years of life. One verbally oriented psychiatrist recently proclaimed that trauma resolution from the first two years of life was impossible. He really was right, with his methods. His methods were verbal, so why would one expect him to have success with nonverbal trauma? You may have significant trauma from your first two years. Common psychological traumas for babies are: (1)pain during birth, (2)early painful medical interventions, (3)parental addicts or abusers or (4)parental neglect of needs for prompt care. If you believe you may have such trauma, the following methods have had satisfactory success with early nonverbal trauma: Rebirthing, Primal, EMDR and some bodywork therapies (this author would recommend trying EMDR first).


Many therapists instantaneously dismiss the possibility of past life trauma. For help here, ask therapists/ hypnotists in your area if they know therapists doing this work. If past life trauma is the source of your difficulties, conventional therapy will not be of much help. Conventional therapy will often just label you resistant. Do not rush to get past life therapy; for most never seem to need it. Even fewer need it in the beginning stages of therapy. (See Chapter 11 for more about this.)

Your dreadful sexual dream last night indicates that you have sexual lessons to learn, not necessarily that you need to enact the dream's contents.
