Introduction

EVERYBODY HAS THAT SOMETHING... No one likes to admit it, but we all have that something that we wish might somehow be different. We wish we were better. Wish we were more. Wish to be heard or seen. Wish we could be free of some situation. We have all, over time, developed ways to engage with the world, both internally and externally. We established and adopted many of our rules and tools at a young age and adjusted as needed as we went along. ​Yet, sometimes, while what we came up with once worked, as of late, these rules and tools are no longer providing the desired outcomes. Circumstances have changed, are more complex, and we didn't notice. ​Should we continue, in the face of these new situations, to utilize the same approaches while expecting different outcomes, we become frustrated and anxious. If we do this long enough, it will begin to seem hopeless. ​UNDERLYING ASSUMPTION The underlying truth which is the foundation of the therapeutic approach at AQAL Therapies, is the understanding that people are doing the best that they can, with the knowledge and skills that they have. If there was any other better way that a person could have done it, that would be the path that they would have taken. ​Once a person can grasp this underlying concept, it becomes possible to see our choices for what they were and what they are, allowing us freedom from the meaning we have added to it all without losing the wisdom gained in these experiences. This is psychological flexibility. PSYCHOLOGICAL FLEXIBILITY Openness, awareness and values-based actions help to increase psychological flexibility so that it becomes possible to transition through such a stage. That is what you will find here. Someone to help you challenge these notions, explore different avenues and discover new ways of being.
