After having spent months and years in talk therapy, both individual and group (which I gave up on years ago), I was a little skeptical that my work with Brendan would bear much fruit, especially in the short run. But now, I begin to appreciate the powerful forces he has taught me how to tap into, and what a direct path they can open into healing. My experience the other day left me tingling with excitement, and feeling an unfamiliar sense of hope and optimism. I had thought that I had pretty much banished the feeling of shame that was instilled in me growing up, but now I see that I had merely bandaged it up with a tight dressing, along with a bunch of good things that shame had attached itself to. Pretty amazing. And I feel that I am just getting started with this process, and with what he can help me discover.
