When I walked into his office I was pissed right off and blaming everyone including the world. Mark was able to allow me to vent and slowly over time enable me to see beyond my anger and look deeper to the fact that my anxiety fueled my anger. I liked the way he would engage me by normalizing my anger, sadly it’s common for most of us men. Mark would externalize all the inner ‘talking’ in my head, the “monkey mind” he called it and I would find myself laughing at how much shit goes on in my head and no wonder I use to lose it. It wasn’t anybody else fault I was doing it to myself really and then the ‘pennies started to drop’.
The depth of work that Mark has done is incredible. His intuitive ability is beyond what I have ever seen. His empathetic curiosity allowed me to deeply explore the old hurts that I falsely comforted. The way he held the therapeutic space made it so safe to allow the old painful vulnerability to surface, be healed and reconciled.
The work I have completed has really assisted come into a new relationship with myself. I am coming to terms with my loneliness and experiencing more enjoyment in life.
