What You Believe is what you get!
Our limiting or mistaken beliefs are laid down in early childhood and unfortunately are carried with us into adulthood becoming our truth about ourselves. The good news is they are a myth! PICT is able to change these beliefs, enabling us to live the life we were meant to live without limitations.
Its effects can be profound and long-lasting. It was originally formulated for use with adults who had suffered childhood abuse or poor parenting and its effects. However it can be used for anyone who wants to address any form of unwanted behaviour or emotional problem.
These are just some of the issues that may be helped by PICT:
Lack of confidence, low self esteem, relationship difficulties, stress related problems, anger management, eating disorders, grief and bereavement (including miscarriage or abortion), fears and phobias, depression, anxiety, traumatic incidents such as rape, sufferers of domestic violence, self harm, emotional, physical or sexual childhood abuse.
It differs from other models because the client is not required to divulge, or spend time in repeating the details of traumatic events, this results in it being more compassionate and less traumatic.
