Hypnotherapy


by Holli Kenley

Over the years, as an intern and then as a I licensed therapist, I have worked heavily in the fields of abuse, trauma, addiction, and grief/loss.  With individuals, couples, and families, I largely relied on two approaches: Client Centered and Cognitive Behavioral methodologies.  For most of my clients, their journeys were met with healing and levels of recovering that enabled them to navigate with a more whole and well sense of being.  However, as far back as 2003, I began to feel that there was more left unsaid, more left unfinished...

Editor´s Note from Debbie Allen: In recent years the addiction field has moved from a sole focus on substance addiction to understanding that people may have multiple addictions including sexual addictions and love addictions. In many cases, there is a shame based core in the personality which is often linked to early trauma resulting in disrupted attachment needs.

Susan Peabody describes the unique characteristics of the Ambivalent Love Addict.

 

Psychotherapy
