In my work with clients transitioning out of therapy, I use a metaphor to help make sense of the whole process of therapy and coaching and why we often need both in order to live the lives we dream of living.
In the coming months, I’ve planned a series of posts around each of these phases to cover them in more depth. For today, we’ll walk through a very high level version of the metaphor. (You also have the opportunity to learn more in my free webinar – Happily Ever (After Therapy) – which you can check out here. Once you register, you can watch it at your convenience.)
When you arrive on the planet, you choose your soul’s land for this lifetime. Each person’s soul’s land is unique and contains the blueprint for who they are and what they love in this life.
Your soul’s land is perfect for you, but you need shelter to live and interact with the world. This is what I call your house – the social constructs that allow you to relate to others and the world.
In an ideal world, your house perfectly suits your soul’s land in design, style, size, etc.
Trauma of any kind can severely interfere with the building process, leaving us with varying degrees of shacks.
Therapy is the process of tearing down what doesn’t work and rebuilding it to suit your soul’s land.
