A New Perspective on Recovery

July 29, 2014

What if recovery has nothing to do with stopping a behaviour, or even getting ourselves back to a previous state? True recovery is the process of recovering all of us, and with that, all of the possibilities for ourselves and our lives. Most of us have greatly limited what we have decided we are and can be, particularly after certain events like divorce, death of a loved one or active addictions in ourselves or others. Despite what we have been led to believe by this reality, we can move beyond any part of our past. True recovery allows us to see the greatness of us that has been hidden – perhaps for years. Would you be willing to discover a YOU that’s beyond anything you’ve ever imagined?

I’ve recovered from many different things in my life – divorce, abusive relationships, addiction to alcohol and cigarettes, the death of family members and friends, a chronic illness, and even some bouts with depression. While this reality suggests we need different paths to recovering from these events, what I’ve discovered for myself and my clients of 23 years as a psychotherapist, is that true recovery is a process of personal transformation and creation. It is applicable to addictions and losses of all kinds, as it releases us from the limitations that have kept us small, contracted, and unaware of what is potentially possible for each of us. It is not about managing symptoms, or addressing each “issue” one by one. It is a paradigm shift. Old patterns and belief systems drop away because they are incompatible with the true YOU!

Right Recover For You provides effective and easy to use tools and techniques that you can apply to empower yourself. Many of us have been captive by the very destructive primary addiction of this reality, which is to judgment and the wrongness of self. Are you ready to let go of judgment? Right Recovery can assist you in getting out of the destructive grip of self judgment and into the space and peace of allowance and possibilities.

What if there were many more choices for you than you ever know were available? Is there something that you haven’t chosen to look at or deal with or change because this reality says you won’t be able to change it? What if you could change it with more ease than you’ve ever imagined? What if you were truly free to create the life and living you’ve always desired? What if the world needs the gift of who you truly are? The world is waiting for you!
