Recognising patterns and letting them go
Part of yourself from your childhood period is called “internal part of the child”. Experiences from childhood can have such an effect nowadays that you are no longer in contact with, for instance, your spontaneity, humour, playfulness, creativity or enjoying being a child. This is because we have developed survival strategies according to our experiences as a child. Therefore it may be that you wish to act too much as a perfect person and wish to do everything yourself, eliminate yourself or retreat, have little or no confidence in other persons, or maybe you’re addicted. These strategies have an impact on your functioning in daily life and in the teams of which you are a part.
You are usually not aware of your inner childparts. You do know that you have a certain behaviour or thoughts that come back regularly or else people around you are aware of this. If you wish to breakthrough a certain pattern of your own or wish to access your required qualities, inner child therapy is a very good way to realise this.
