How do I care for my Inner Child if I was never taught how?

I often hear from clients how difficult and awkward it feels to listen to their inner child. Many of times it's because:

  • There was no one to role model self-care
  • Their childhood was unhappy and they're scared to re-visit old feelings
  • They feel silly because they are grown now

The list could go on and on. We find ways to resist those places inside that make us most nervous. Dissociation of childhood memories is a common phenomenon. With dissociation of memories, the inner child is often not thought about.

This video presents a little doodle girl holding her stuffed bear. The wording discusses how hard it can feel to take care of the little one inside of yourself when care was not available to you as a child.

My heart is with you as you begin your journey to reclaim your inner child. Click the link below for a free handout (with the same little doodle) that dives a little deeper into the process.
