Why are people scared of therapy? (aka emotional hot potato)
Alison Crosthwait

A very insightful explanation of Avoidance. The unconscious strongly opposes any therapy that might ‘threaten’ your core fears. While this is designed to prevent ‘harm’ it also blunts the effectiveness of any therapy. A key tenant of therapy is learning the ability to ‘sit with’ your feelings, realizing that there is nothing ‘harmful’ to avoid.
