Somewhere in the years doing this work I started calling it Human Math.
So many people struggle with math that it is a risky way to define it but math actually is really important, we all seek it in some way – the patterns and equations and sums. The only reason anyone dislikes it is if we had “bad” teachers in our school experience.
If you had the great fortune to ever have a great, passionate and gifted math teacher you would know why it is a loveable thing.
Understanding and creating healing for people in therapy has always been math to me – fascinating and sound math.
When I sit down with someone to find what they need, the symptoms and the causes immediately sort out and separate into either symptoms or causes. A thousand symptoms come from a few causes. Then it becomes clear what to change in the equation to have a much, much different experience. It’s an exhilarating process to go through. It never stops being a sort of thrill to trust that it all has math to it. Always. Almost like codes pop up in the air between us. YES, this works online just as well.
I love that we can count on that.
