We form our core relationship with ourselves by seeing ourselves in our parent's reflection back to us. We then build our relationship with ourselves based on to that foundation. Everything we do - our "Self-Talk", the partners we pick, our feelings of worth (or lack of worth) are based on this relationship. We see things through the filter of our Inner Child, and we react to the wounds we suffered in childhood. This has us reacting, not responding in life. This course will teach participants how to heal their wounds, even ones perhaps not quite conscious of before and how to live being more true to themselves. This course will not only provide exercises to do the day of and to continue using if desired but will have things to pass on to clients to help their growth, and facilitation as well.
Presenter: CATHERINE DEMONTE, LMFT
is a graduate of CSUN and is in private practice with offices in Beverly Hills & Calabasas. She is the author of a variety of articles and popular workshop presenter. Her primary focus is helping clients become their best and most authentic self so they can lead happier, more full-filling lives and be the best parent, partner and person they can possibly be. One of her approaches to achieve this goal is in helping people rid themselves of the faulty and limiting beliefs about themselves from the messages they've gotten from parents &/or society. One effective way to get to this point to is to hear, heal and honor our Inner Child so that we are basing our choices on as "pure" a place as possible. "It is necessary to own and honor the child who we were in order to Love the person we are. And the only way to do that is to own that child's experiences, honor that child's feelings, and release the emotional grief energy that we are still carrying around." -Robert Burney
Catherine sees children, teens, couples and individual adults. She also leads "Women Living Full Out" groups which empower women to find and use their voices. Please visit her website at www.catherinedemonte.com
