This post describes person-centred in a nutshell, and is what we seek to offer at this service: holding loving space for a person as they explore their inner world; make their own needful connections; find their own healing and expansion. The Rachel Naomi Remen quote is one of our favourites…
“Helping, fixing and serving represent three different ways of seeing life. When you help, you see life as weak. When you fix, you see life as broken. When you serve, you see life as whole. Fixing and helping may be the work of the ego, and service the work of the soul….
…Serving is different from helping. Helping is not a relationship between equals. A helper may see others as weaker than they are, needier than they are, and people often feel this inequality. The danger in helping is that we may inadvertently take away from people more than we could ever give them; we may diminish their self-esteem, their sense of worth, integrity or even wholeness.”
