What is family tree therapy?

The family tree is a graphical representation of the ancestors and descendants of an individual. The representation is done in an organized and systematic way where one exposes his/her ancestors, their beliefs, their experiences, ideas and ways of thinking that are inherited from generation to generation.
The family acts as a mold and, without realizing it, one tends to fit in and feel accepted. On many occasions, without being aware of it, this adaptation is performed according to the inherited toxic patterns which limit an individual, leading to dissatisfaction.

The study of the family tree allows the client to discover all those unconscious dynamics that drive one's life, forcing him/her to repeat inherited patterns and create distance from his/her authenticity.

Family tree is not just a therapy, it is self awareness! Family tree brings individuals onto a conscious path leading them to live their lives utterly, allowing them to express themselves in a unique, unrepeatable and fulfilling way.

Celebrating Feminine Energy on Women’s Day

Like yin and yang, we are all made up of feminine and masculine energy. The masculine side relates to thinking, action and things we can describe in words. The feminine side is about inner energy, feelings and intuition. In today’s world, many women connect more with their masculine energy in order to compete and survive. The feminine side is pushed down and devalued. A woman may lose touch with this…

Common Emotional and Relationship Issues for Today’s Woman

I work with many clients to better understand how these issues are affecting their lives and to examine how they see themselves and how they can reconnect with their feminine energy. One common example is the successful career woman…

Creating Your Own Oasis in Shanghai

It’s common for Shanghai expats to focus on escapism, in other words always looking toward “the day it’s over”. Both unconsciously and in statements and actions, expats are often waiting for the next vacation, trip home, or repatriation for an escape. Or, they may pack their schedules all week with constant meetings, errands and a full to-do list so that they’re exhausted by Friday and always awaiting the weekend to…

Cultural Adjustment and Repatriation

When moving to a new culture or even repatriating to one’s home country, there is a normal period of adjustment.  It is common to feel a sense of being out of place in a new culture (or even when returning to your home culture after time away) and there may be times when a person feels lonely and uncomfortable. Being thrown into a new culture forces us to confront questions…

Dealing with Emotions

First, when encountering a situation (could be a person, external stimulus, event or issue), people see it with certain assumptions (these are preconceived concepts based on the belief system). Through this filter, one reacts based on his/her biology and the way he/she measures reality. Reaction is always associated with emotion. There are two types of emotion: primary and secondary. Primary is the emotion that one can show (socially speaking)—the conscious/social…

Enjoy Today by Finding Security Within: Tips for Adjusting to Life in Shanghai

As human beings, we often seek security and safety from the outside world. We tend to think that if we control our environment, people or situations outside us, we might feel secure.

For expats who have relocated to…

How to Ruin the Holidays

1. Compare and complain. For example, if you go home to a small town you can focus on how nothing is as exciting or interesting as Shanghai (and tell everyone about it). If you stay in Shanghai for the holidays, you can complain about how much better the holidays are at home. 2. Take everything personally. The holidays bring out a lot of emotions and we can easily fall into…

Physical Pain: The Emotional Connection

Any physical issue or pain you experience is a symptom of what is going on in the body and mind. It is all connected, so body and mind cannot be separated. TCM has long understood this wholeness. Focusing solely on symptom treatment has kept a lot of people in a cycle of masking what the body is saying and therefore continuing to suffer. BioNeuroEmotion (BNE) is a method that studies…

Planning and Manifesting Your Best 2017

Many times “new year’s resolutions” fail because we state an intention but then we don’t focus on it.
