    Thank you for your appreciation of these videos. Feedback helps me. Are you able to discuss this with your therapist?

    i’M getting a lot from group therapy but the therapist is sort of pushing biofeedback on me. for some reason i don’t think biofeedback is as good as your talks, discussions, etc…. my groups are fantastic too. but what i’ve read, neurobiofeedback is more of a health insurance motivator….. i.e. bill ins. for mucho bux..

    Your 9 part series certainly helped work run by smoothly today!
    As someone with no real experience in these fields, I wonder if you could recommend me a starting point for research on:

    1. psychotherapy/psychoanalysis
    2. suicide

    I recall you mentioned the “red book”, would that well cover the first point?

    thank you!

    I am enjoying these videos a lot so far! I’m starting research for a character in a story who is a child psychologist.
    Do you work with children or only adults?
    thanks!

    Thank you for your comments. Where are you studying? I certainly don’t think existence is just a web of transference and countertransference although they involve dynamics that are the substance of many of life’s interpersonal interactions.

    great video very helpful, im about to take an exam in this stuff for my social studies degree, we studied object relations last semester and i agree that bonds and attachment formed through early object interaction has a huge impact on how we develop, transference is very interesting too, is the world and existence just a web of transference and contertransference?

    Attachment is such an important dynamic in human development. You probably saw the talk related to attachment. Mother-infant interactions observed at 4 months could predict disorganized attachment in 1 year old infants.

    That is wonderful and thanks for letting me know that I am getting exposure in Australia. That is where you are studying, isn’t it? If you could pass the link on to others. It is kind of you to comment and respond.

    I am really enjoying the program, I am learning a lot and suddenly undergrad is starting to make sense :)

    Our amazing ‘Theories of counselling’ lecturer Dr Pieter Rossouw showed the class your first posts and that’s how I heard about ‘Therapyforheheart.’

    i will! Psychology is like a rabbit hole, once you read one thing, your interest leads you to another then another and before you know it you’re in a whole new world of the human psyche! I am particularly interested in attachment theory in children and adults.

    lol yes it’s ok that you are a modern day Merlin! I just need to know the mechanic of how everything works, why therapy works, what is the theory behind the practice, why people are drawn to become psychotherapists, it’s not an easy job. I’m too inquisitive i think :D

    Universities have very high standards and academically I am not there. I am struggling on my current course at college so not sure how I would cope at university.

    You emotions can be a great help in doing this work and the more you are aware and understand them the less fear you will have. What makes you think you are not smart enough? People don’t do well in school for many reasons and it often does not have to do with ability.

I have listened to your first 3 posts and I am really looking forward to watching your recent posts.Thank you for sharing with us your knowledge in such awesome way :)

    Thank you for making these videos! I am looking into becoming a psychotherapist but fear my emotions may get in the way or I am not smart enough to become a therapist. I am 18 years old and it is something I have wanted to do since I was 15. I live in the UK and didn’t do very well in school and fear I have messed up my chances. I am currently studying Level 3 Health and Social Care, but struggling! I haven’t enrolled to anything yet as I am very unsure whether this would be too hard for me?

    @ticklemouse2000 im in the UK studying NCFE level 3 certificate in counselling. i’m really enjoying it but have found the self development side quite hard going. I’ve experienced alot of personal movement and i’m still deciding whether to continue for now. I feel i need to take things slowly.

  24. therapyfortheheart said,

    I was wondering what certificate program you are in and what you are studying.

    Beautiful – the intense presence of the tutors and students here. Reminded me of the DH Lawrence poem on intelligence – ‘man in his wholeness, wholly attending’.

    Does anyone know HOW our bodies can speak so intelligently when we get our cerebral selves out of the way?
