Modern psychotherapeutic theory, backed up by research, no longer supports the notion that therapy can only be successful if you unearth the 'root cause' of a problem. It is also clear that millions of people know quite well why they became depressed or phobic or addicted - but this knowledge doesn't actually help them stop being that way.
It also used to be held that, because psychological 'symptoms' serve a function for the person who has them, 'fixing' a symptom without finding the root cause would only result in the generation of a new 'symptom' to serve that function. This is not borne out in practice. In all our years of treating clients, we have never seen a single example of this. What we do see, very often, is that the original cause of a problematic symptom has disappeared, but the symptom has remained in place because it has become a 'habit'.
Our downloads always focus on helping relieve symptoms but also suggest ways that life generally can improve.
