Sam and Eric's Way of Helping Their Clients

Sam and Eric understand how emotions work.  They know that all emotions, even the difficult ones, are a rich source of information about what is important in our lives.  They love helping their clients change their painful emotions and to ultimately uncover what those emotions are telling them that they are needing but missing.  Sam and Eric do this by closely guiding their clients through a process of emotional awareness, emotional withstanding and emotional understanding. 

Sam and Eric also appreciate that emotions and relationships go hand-in-hand - they affect each other very closely.  This means that strong positive relationships help us weather tough emotions and transform them, and transformed emotions will enrich our relationships.  With this in mind, Sam and Eric also guide their clients to identify and understand their rigid emotional patterns of relating to people, which keeps them trapped in their painful emotions.  They guide their clients to try out new ways of connecting with people.  With transformed emotions and a new way of relating to people, their clients will start to lead a richer and more meaningful life.

“When the other person is hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, alienated, terrified; or when he or she is doubtful of self-worth, uncertain as to identity, then understanding is called for. The gentle and sensitive companionship of an empathic stance… provides illumination and healing. In such situations deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give to another.”
