Who is it for?
‘In the beginning’ is for anyone who wants to review their primal family relationships, now, as an adult.
Different issues will alert us to the need to do this, including: inner emptiness; anxiety; shame; drifting through life; feeling fatherless; acting out a role; living behind a mask; issues with authority figures; passivity; control; co-dependency; issues with work colleagues; inability to say “no”; loneliness; low self-esteem; feeling rejected; being stuck in unhelpful relationships; isolating; rage; self-harming, etc.
When does it run?
The next course starts January 2014, meeting on Thursday evenings in St Aldates Parish Centre, 40 Pembroke Street. For directions, please click here.
