Woman Within ~ Do-It-Yourself Therapy by Simply Using "ONE Empty Chair" Therapy Session, without Paying a Shrink
The goal of a Therapist is simply this:
1. To awaken a patient enough, that she can get in tune with what is going on deep down inside her.
2. To help her discover a way to do her very own therapy and no longer be in need of his services.
3. If your therapist wants you longer than your reaching these 2 goals, you need to FIRE HIM.
Just to help you reduce the need a therapist right from the get-go, I decided to teach you a simple procedure that therapists use on their clients, and they big bucks using this here method. You might as well learn this simple method and keep all the cash you can in your purse.
The method is called, "Empty Chair" Therapy. In our next blog I will share how it works. The idea of this blog is to teach you how to look after yourself for FREE.
However, before I do I have added a picture during the 2012 Republican Convention is where Clint Eastwood demonstrated this ONE CHAIR method in front of thousands of laughing people, pretending that President Obama was sitting on the Empty Chair. Later, let me tell you what he said, so you can laugh about Clint's message to the President too.
Getting back to the "ONE CHAIR method", I have used this method myself, and I want to teach it to you because it is one of the most powerful transforming methods to do both. And you can do it on your own.
1. Awaken yourself to any inner long abiding people problems that should be resolved such as forgiveness, so you can get on with your life. Life is too short to carry around anger and hatred for others.
2. Use it as a means of self-therapy without the need of paying for a therapist. Keep your purse shut, so a therapist can't get inside.
3. Make the Psychiatric Counselling Industry Obsolete.
Let's face, you don't really need a therapist once you know what you are doing, this blog post is to offer you a start.
Besides knowing what I will teach you here will not only save you heart ache, but a whole lot of money too.
So getting back to Clint’s speech:
“And he did it all while addressing an "invisible" President Barack Obama sitting in an empty chair. Eastwood, who played the iconic tough guy character "Dirty Harry" during his long career in Hollywood, fired up the party base when he said he cried when Obama was elected and cried even harder years later when millions were out of work.”

Next he said, "It's a national disgrace," Eastwood said. "It may be time for someone else to come along and solve the problem." PS the picture is from CNN too.
Let’s pull out all the stops and all that propriety stuff we hear about each day because you being a victim there was no propriety there. This exercise is not about propriety because it is all about your own sanity and how you can move on in life, so in this “Empty Chair” process, anything goes.
Just as Clint was using the Empty Chair to rail against President Obama, so can you too against any abusive person you might have met, or with whom you lived. Imagine that the person you are talking to if you were a victim as if he or she was a jerk. The “empty chair” can allow you to get back at them.
Before you use this therapy, make sure you do it in private. Your boss or your significant other might think you’ve gone nuts, because they don’t realize how effective VOCALIZTION is. They don’t’ know Gestalt therapy, taught by Fritz Perl’s, and about using this verbalizing technique, where your use anger against your assailant if you were his or her victim.
If there was physical abuse you might like to raise your voice and even swear at this person, in fact, to get it off your chest, almost anything goes. If you want to hit the culprit make sure it is a soft chair though. So here is the procedure: You can either place a chair in front of the other soft chair in which you sit imagining the other person is seated opposite.
Or you can stand up in front of the empty chair. If you are probably going to have a lengthy conversation it is much better that you be seated yourself. Either choice will do. Whatever way you choose will work famously. But can it work even for hardened experiences? Yes it can.
Imagine what is going on in you if you were ever vocally, physically or sexually abused. It is like a pop can that is in Elvis’ words, “You are all shook up”. The problem is that you are all shook up day in and day out and that is not healthy. You need to get back to being healthy and that is why you are doing this therapy.
Somehow, this vocalization process acts like pulling off the tab and the top of the can. Sure the anger and hatred all gushes out. But something strange happens once you get it all out. Peace eventually emerges.
What happens is what some call forgiveness, and not that you don’t remember it, because you always will I am afraid. However, once like the carbon dioxide gushes out of the can it eventually stops. And all that is there is simply liquid. That is what happens to you too, once the anger is released; now you can go back to a normal way of living, without having to carry around this burden.
Notice it is the “Empty Chair” was all you needed and not a Therapist. Let’s be honest, the reason you pay a therapist $100 = $200 an hour if he’s a psychiatrist is simply to listen. Can’t a chair replace the listening process, letting it be your catalyst?
In fact, you didn’t have a meter running with a chair and in fact, you did it all by yourself, without anyone else’s help. Besides, you eventually have to become your own therapist anyways, so why can’t it be done in a few minutes alone. You do it yourself at McDonald’s, so why can’t you do it yourself here.
Hopefully, some of the elements of my blog as it progresses can act as a means like any McDonald’s drive through restaurant, by you absorbing some meaningful article, and hopefully solving many other of your own personal life problems, That is why i created this blog, so please keep reading.
