Why Does Take So Long For People to Reach For Help?

Paula Susan, Specialist in Trauma and Relationships here in South Jersey asks:

          Why does it take so long for people to reach for help with their relationship and emotional struggles?  Doing this gratifying work since 1982, it continues to surprise me that people are willing to live in unhappiness, abusive treatment, and without sexual gratification.

          I’ve heard that “people don’t change”, and that is not true!  What is true, is that you learn attitudes, beliefs and behaviors from your environment.  Remember the adage “Children learn what they live.”

          Of course, there are genetic tendencies and other influences.  However, doing this work with me can set you free – free to be the loving person – partner that you can be.

          Eye Movement, Desentization and Reprocessing is an amazing gift to our field of healing deep scars.  Learning a Dialogue that will allow for each of you to hear the other, and encourage intimacy through compassion – what could be better?

          Let’s have a conversation to see if we fit.  Call me.  609-975-8845.  Or, e-mail me at ps@paulasusan.com.

Empowering Ourselves Interview

A Message From Paula Susan

During this terrible crisis and isolation, Paula Susan, Trauma and Relationship Specialist since 1982, is here to help you.  We can speak through telephone or Zoom and I will do counseling  that can transform your life.  Traumas - big and little - change the way we feel about ourselves, each other and the world.

I continue to study with the masters in my field.  And, I have integrated the most valuable ways of healing different issues, into the EMDR which I have creatively made my own.
