About Isabella Parker’s Practice
My relevant work background was as a Research Psychologist at the Black Dog Institute (NSW) which is a Research and Tertiary Referral unit for DEPRESSION.
Since setting up practice in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, my area of expertise treating adults has evolved into resolving CHILDHOOD STUFF because this often UNDERPINS current problems such as depressing or dysfunctional life situations, self-sabotaging behaviour, feeling disempowered or repeated patterns that can lead to feeling like a helpless victim.
The ‘link’ with childhood may be ‘direct’ via unresolved emotional issues or it may be ‘indirect’ via ‘vulnerabilities’ such as attitudes, faulty self-beliefs or ineffective coping styles.
The ‘link’ lies in ‘emotional foundations’ laid down in childhood when ‘emotional developmental needs’ have been unmet or violated by parents. This can be caring parents who ‘did the best they knew how’, but they didn’t actually ‘know how’ – they copied their own parents or vowed to be ‘different’ but just made ‘different mistakes’ or have been misled by social ideology that devalues parenting.
If a child’s ‘emotional developmental needs’ are met by parents, the result is a healthy sense of Self Worth that will stand the person in good stead long term. Self Worth is adapted from the child’s ‘perception’ of how they are valued by their parents and is the foundation for later building their Self Esteem. If needs are unmet by a parent, the result is some degree of poor Self Worth (creating a tendency to settle for second best in life). If needs are violated by a parent (even unintentionally), the result is poor Self Worth plus anger which has to be concealed from the parent and ‘repressed’ into the subconscious mind so as to avoid alienation by the parent. If unresolved, this ‘repressed anger’ can lead to emotional problems, depression, self-medicating with drugs/alcohol and/or aggressive behaviour.
The good news is that with the aid of hypnotherapy, the subconscious mind can be accessed to ‘rebuild emotional foundations’ by addressing unmet/violated ‘emotional developmental needs’ at their ‘origins’ and this promotes healing and self-empowerment.
