One Focus: Relationship to Money
A particularly acute challenge for many of us these days is financial upset and out-of-control expenditures. Few subjects other than sex are so filled with meaning as is money. Freud started the investigation of the meanings and highly personal and private reactions attached to money. Finances are sometimes the last issues to be raised in psychotherapy. Investigating and understanding behaviors such as overspending, hoarding, impulse buying, etc., can be very productive. Strong feelings emerge. Concrete strategies for changing behavior are useful, but discovering the underlying logic of financial behavior is the key to real organic change and transformation. The results can reveal surprising insights that carry over to your relationships, career goals, and your sense of self-worth and satisfaction.
