Interview the Psychoanalyst Who’s Not Afraid to Tell You What She’s Feeling!
VETERAN MENTAL HEALTH EXPERT’S REVOLUTIONARY METHOD TO RESCUE YOU FROM CONFUSION, UNHAPPINESS AND AGITATION
Thanks to the confusion caused by medication for anxiety and depression, many sufferers in today’s society struggle day-to-day with how to parent, stay married and find meaningful work. This struggle can lead to feelings of being overwhelmed, doing uncharacteristic things, becoming disconnected from family and friends and, overall, quickly falling into despair. These are the issues of our day and our current psychology isn’t helping anymore – it’s worn out. We need something new.
Enter: Dr. Claudia Luiz, veteran psychoanalyst and author of the new book, Where’s My Sanity? Stories that Help, whose brand of therapy is controversial, goes against the American way (which is always try harder), but has proven to be very effective.
“I know Eckhart Tolle has told you to let go of your ‘pain body’ by living in the present moment,” says Dr. Luiz, “but I want to give you permission to acknowledge when you’re hurting. Awhile back, Dr. Phil told you to connect with your ‘authentic self.’ However, I think when you’re stuck, anxious and overwhelmed, well then your authentic self just feels stuck, anxious and overwhelmed. And countless gurus have told you to always be your ‘best self.’ But I know you can’t be your best self when the only self you’ve got is concentrating on all the things you’ve done wrong. So, your sanity probably isn’t where you’ve been looking so far.”
Adds Dr. Luiz, “I will take you where you need to go before you can make a change. Because what leads to sanity, when all reason fails, is emotional experiences. Not ideas. But experiences.”
In an eye-opening and insightful interview, Dr. Luiz can discuss:
- Whether she feels the current mental health condition has deteriorated in the U.S.
- Why she’s tired of the national gurus telling us how we’re supposed to be better, how we’re supposed to be happier, more enlightened, more authentic, more organized and the “best” in every way. Because it doesn’t work.
- The different solution she is providing to the national mental health crisis.
- Why there is no magic “get better” button and why searching for emotional experiences, not solutions or ideas, is the way to change.
- Why psychoanalysts should reveal more about themselves.
- Any of the captivating stories she reveals in her book and the lessons they can teach you to get better.
- And much more!
