Therapy is often an attempt to stabilise the crisis, to find ease in the distress, to ‘deal’ with an emotional or cognitive obstacle. … but therapy can also be an exciting opportunity for wandering, wondering and wonder.
Like the Wanderer, the therapeutic journey can take many different paths, some can be quite painful (‘growing pains’) and some, equally, can be enlightening, encouraging and enriching.
I have chosen the Turtle as my emblem as the turtle represents persistence, determination, endurance and longevity. The turtle totem wisdom teaches us about walking our path in peace and with purposefulness and serenity.
