Psychotherapist Kenneth Sørensen on observing and embracing our whole selves
Do you know your subpersonalities and how to develop them?
I recently spoke with the Danish psychotherapist Kenneth Sørensen. We had a deep and exciting conservation about subpersonalities, and how we can observe and develop them. Subpersonalities are all the different voices within build around the different conscious and unconscious roles we play in life. Our personality is like a large building with different levels, where we contain a multitude of voices we experience as our different reactions, habits and behaviors in life. We are supposed to be the master of that house but rarely is.
This interview explains how you can take steps to become the master of your life.
