Parts & Memory

Parts and Memory Therapy is a way to do counseling or psychotherapy. It begins with two controversial ideas. The first is that the mind consists of many Parts or subpersonalities, each with its own submind. It’s not a single, consistent, streamlined thing. The second is that nearly all adult mental and emotional issues result from our histories of painful life experiences, especially the years of growing up.

Parts and Memory Therapy aims to help you find the memories of events that created a problem Part, and then to neutralize the negative emotions and body sensations still attached to the memories of those events. The result is that the Part becomes centered rather than extreme, calm rather than agitated. When that Part and others become centered and calm, so do you.
