Shadow Work was coined by Carl Jung, an early psychotherapist. It's goal is to understand and heal the inner child through love and compassion. rather than shame and judgment.
You shove into your shadow (part of yourself you wish to keep hidden) everything you dislike about yourself or feel shame about. This shame magnifies the shadow, often creating the reality you fear- self-fulfilling prophecy.
The shadow also consists of your unhealed inner child. This inner child will come forward in times of stress in an attempt to protect you, but often has the opposite effect. Screaming at someone, throwing objects or shutting down in times of conflict. Sound familiar?
The therapists at Onyx will help you meet your shadow with love and compassion, effectively healing it so it no longer negatively effects you.
