The path toward healing: rewrite your lifescript


Adult children of alcoholics very often hide their feelings, they do not trust, they do not talk, and they do not feel. They want to forget their past, so they prefer not to talk about it, thinking they can move on and let it go forever. Unfortunately, the shadow of a troubled childhood follows them until they find the courage to face it.

Not all alcoholic families are the same: some are more severe than others and have multiple problems. Some may have loving but inconsistent parents, which makes it difficult for them to speak negatively about their childhood to anyone. However, effective therapy is not about confrontations or blaming one’s parents. It is possible to love someone and be disappointed and hurt at the same time. These conflicting feelings can be expressed and dealt with and will eventually help heal relationships with parents and adult siblings.

Although we cannot change the past or the people we love, healing and recovery are possible with support and guidance, to improve self-esteem, reduce shame, heal old childhood wounds, and provide tools for healthier relationships. Quality of life improves significantly when you are able to leave old patterns behind and become aware of the emotional blind spots that have influenced your choices. Your authentic self is not lost, it has been repressed until a time when it is safe to come out.

The workshop

During this workshop we will take a closer look at the effects of growing up with alcoholism: its impact on relationship patterns, the struggle to connect, to control and to trust, and how to become the true, authentic, and self-aware adult you are meant to be.

The workshop will have maximum 8 participants. Aspects we will focus on: letting go of control and strenghthening trust, overcome the fear of feelings, identify your needs, increase resilience, limits and boundaries.

Individual therapeutic and EMDR sessions are avilable.

Recovery specialists and therapists are very welcome to work here with their clients.
