“Under the thick layer of our skin is the soul of our childhood remaining unchanged. The soul is impervious to time.” Francois Mauriac

The following questions are those I ask of my patients in order to initiate introspection:

What emotional problems have you not solved

What motivates you

what are you seeking

what validates you

what keeps your interest

what makes you happy or sad

what fears do you have

what was your childhood like, how did it affect you

do you seek to satisfy yourself or others

which parent did you attempt to please

how or what do you do to compensate

critical events of your life, your life theme.

how do others see you, how do you see yourself

persona in public, person in private
