Client view points are an important part of the analysis and feedback process. Below are two examples of feedback and commentary received by clients.
The following was offered by a grateful ex-client to Anna Paolozzi, a Mnemodynamic therapist. The quote is used with permission of therapist & client:
Of course I’m happy to say something about the process of our work together:
“For fourteen long and painful years I attended weekly counselling and psychotherapy sessions in the hope that the incredible pain & hurt that was trapped inside me could be expelled in a safe environment. For fourteen long & painful years all that happened at those sessions was stirring up of the events as I recollected them over and over again.No emotions dissipated and although my aim was to ‘let go’; I was unable to because nothing ever changed. Then four months ago I was given two sessions of Mnemodynamic therapy & had an instant and positive reaction. Within moments I was back in the most painful experience of my life & actually feeling it as if it were happening to me all over again EXCEPT that this time I was there safely. Rather than tears of frustration and increasing anger brought on by my previous therapists’ inability to access these profound emotions, the Mnemodynamic therapy helped me cry the actual tears of sadness that had been locked away at the time of the event. All the emotions from that time flooded every cell of my body during this new experience & gave me an instantaneous “clearing”.
Since the therapy was carried out I can remember the incident but feel no real attachment to it, other than as a series of visual images in my memory. I was set free.
It was so simple yet so effective. I can’t thank you enough”.
A client of Sue Washington said:
“I noticed that my wife didn’t push my buttons any more. Things she does which used to provoke a strong emotional response in me don’t do so any more. For example when she sighed in a particular way in response to what one of our children was doing, it would really get my hackles up. My response would be out of proportion to what my wife was doing. This has changed now. I still have emotional responses to things my wife does but they are proportional. I also have choice about whether I talk to her about them, whereas in the past I was a zealot to disclosure having to voice my emotions. Now I can choose whether I say how I feel or not.”
