The mental health dialogue has - in recent years - been brought into the limelight as many people begin to seek more holistic approaches and consider a real need to allow uncomfortable emotions, feelings and thoughts to surface in order to heal. To de-stigmatise experiencing negative emotions and promote the concept that in fact it is recognising, understanding and feeling these emotions that hold the key to our personal growth and development.
We caught up with Emile Steenveld - emotional intelligence coach and speaker, co-founder of Elevate Events - in Canggu, Bali to discuss how to move through and experience uncomfortable emotions. He discusses how our emotions are the key to unlock our unlimited potential, our personal growth, our healing, our liberation from mental health issues such as depression.
Emile believes that “if we can learn to be with these feelings and thoughts and nurture them, instead of pushing them away, then we’re going to allow them to pass through us”.
He talks about avoidance of these emotions being problematic as “the moment we try to hold it/control it, it gets bigger and bigger and bigger.''
