First Psychotherapy Appointment with Joanna Poppink

Your emotional waves are rolling in, but what is the shore you seek? If your life looks good, great or enviable to others, who can you trust with your vulnerabilities and secrets?

You don’t want to take medication. You don’t want to be told what to do. You don’t want to isolate, or use food, drugs or alcohol to soothe yourself.  Yet, you know your spirit cries out for something. You need help and hope help exists. 

What’s Soul Got to Do with Psychotherapy?

Living with an eating disorder or the remnants of an old eating disorder is living a lonely life. You can’t be your true self with anyone in order to create a deep and rich relationship. You don’t even know who you. You feel inadequate. You often feel you are an imposter. You are certain you must please others or take care of them in order to be okay yourself.

Who or what is in you that supports your true self and allows you to be free? Even asking this question can be a revolution in your thinking.

Action for Your Authentic Life in Six Steps (Step Three may be the most difficult) Step Five

You are not the first to make this journey. This journey has been happening since human beings stood on two legs and maybe earlier than that. After all, it was the life force that brought us up to stand.

Dreams: your doorway to healing and a meaningful life

If you have an eating disorder you may not know who to listen to, who to trust, what to believe, what even to hope for. Yet you carry within you the source of your most effective guidance that comes from your authentic truth – your dreams.

Paying attention to your dreams, despite the disguises dreams use through the symbols your unconscious presents, is to pay attention to what is meaningful to you.  Following what is truly meaningful to you is the path to your recovery and to a much more fulfilled and satisfying life.

Decades ago a dream pushed me into the world of recovery and healing.
