For many people, starting the new year is not an easy task. Or, rather, it feels more like an assignment than a clean slate.
This is not surprising, really, because although the transition to a new year is of course just a ‘technical’ matter, it is one that is accompanied by a considerable amount of rituals. It involves a lot of eating, a lot of drinking, there are many appointments. And, in a sense, both too little and too much time; the holidays go by too quickly to really be able to recover, yet at the same time there is exactly time enough to experience certain things that normally remain hidden.

Stress and overload are expressed in pain complaints, stuck emotions in blockages, doubts in unrest. Patterns become clear, relationships come under pressure due to all festively intended meetings and social ‘obligations’. Children must be entertained and/or contact with the partner comes under tension. Or, conversely, loneliness strikes.

Hopefully, balance is regained. But sometimes it is not and intentions, experiences and new stress do not logically fit together, creating a crisis in the system. Psychological and physical traumas take their toll, the cumulative load causes the emergency brake to be pulled as our body sets limits. In that case, feel free to contact us to make an appointment.
