Abandonment is a primal fear that can be the underlying cause of emotional distress and self-sabotage. Join psychotherapist and author Susan Anderson as she shares how to use powerful mind-body exercises to help you resolve relationship issues that have been the source of pain and suffering.

  • Heal primal abandonment and reverse self-abandonment, the primary source of self-defeating patterns
  • Overcome patterns of abandoholism, being attracted to the unavailable
  • Overcome procrastination, avoidance, inertia, and other "outer child" patterns
  • Build your self-esteem, confidence, social life, and career
  • Trim excess emotional weight, clutter, debt, and anxiety
  • Provide healing to the source of depression and low energy.

Susan excels at creating safe, open, life-changing processes within groups. Professionals receive experiential training and learn abandonment recovery techniques to take back to their clients.
