Practicing Therapy, Practicing Yoga

The Practice of Therapy

You are already engaged, or are thinking about engaging, in a practice called therapy.  I am impressed and touched by your willingness to do this most difficult thing – to look within yourself in a conscious attempt to face and to release pain.  I never asked you and would never ask you to do it.  It is too difficult.  I am grateful, though, for your courage, transparency, patience, honesty, and humor.  Sitting with you enables me to engage in one of my own practices, that of the clinical therapist.  Being your therapist is not simply my profession.  It is my purpose and, of course, my challenge.  You interest and exhaust me, make me laugh, try my patience, and push buttons I didn’t know I had.  You are my truest teachers, and I have great reverence for you and for your practice.

Signs of Fall
As early as late August, the light outside looks different – paler and muted with a lessened ability to stimulate the brain and to brighten our surroundings. The sun rises later. The sunset often comes before we have finished our work. Inside and outside, there will be less and less available light (light that our bodies can use) until the winter solstice. Nature’s response can be to go to bed or to find more light. Bears go to bed, spending more and more time in their caves as the dark hibernation period of deep winter approaches. Migratory birds head South in search of more light.

Directed by Thought
Thoughts are key agents in our human process. They channel our energy toward the creation of what we want… or its opposite. Being mindful involves, in part, knowing what our thoughts are and learning to guide them gently in the right direction. Clients who had a challenging background – trauma survivors, those who are working through depression, people whose anxiety or grief is overwhelming – can often heal if they know how powerful their thoughts are. Rather than denying our difficult thoughts or repressing them, we can learn to allow and release them. If we work at it, we can learn to understand, honor, and ease thoughts of sadness and to replace them with thoughts of our own conscious choice.

Being Human
Many years ago, one of my spiritual teachers told me (simplistically, I thought) that a human being is like a tricycle. The three wheels are the physical, cognitive, and emotional selves. Optimally, according to that teacher, there is also a spiritual self that is the driver of the vehicle.

The Question Itself
It is an interesting question to many people for many different reasons. It is of interest to me because I am a therapist to numerous men. Don’t ask me why. I have no clue. I just am. Everyone is surprised by it. My friends never tire of making fun of me for being a specialist in “Men’s Issues”.

Written by Lane Gormley, EdS, LPC, BCC

ChildhoodDramaCase History: A Childhood Drama
Gia was raised by unhappy parents. They were unhappy as individuals and unhappy as husband and wife. Her father, a functioning alcoholic with a corporate job, had low self-esteem. He frequently humiliated his wife and children in order to bolster his sagging ego. His anger was constant and his sarcasm was caustic.
