If you are practising self-harm but wish to be free of it, Inner Change Counselling is for you. Whenever a person has two “selves”, or “parts”, the subconscious fear of the negative “part” often takes hold of the person, causing the repetitive engagement in an activity that is not desired by the positive “part” of the self. Parts-integration and process-work often, though not always, produce outpourings of emotions that can be extremely healing. Working with courage through these emotions sometimes produce dramatic results. This is a form of desensitisation, until the negative part no longer holds power.

I ask scaling questions so that you yourself will notice the change within you, not just because you think so, but because you KNOW so.
