Suppressed emotions can cause serious imbalance resulting in negative or destructive behaviour towards ourselves or others. This combination helps us to release them in a composed and appropriate way. First we are supported in recognising some of our own negative habits such as shortness of temper, tantrums and sulkiness. The combination then helps us comfort the hurt, inner child from which they originate, whilst encouraging a determination to change our behaviour into something more constructive. Thus we learn to benefit from our negative emotions rather than being destroyed by them.
