    in Psychology

    Most of us are on a continual quest to improve our lives.  We seek a better job, a larger house, better gadgets and possessions, even improved relationships, etc.  In this pursuit, we may overlook a primary place that can affect our lives – our inner terrain and unconscious.  How can we explore this inner terrain – and, if we do so, how could that benefit us in our lives?  Does our unconscious truly affect us consciously and our lives, as well as our health?   Diane Brandon is joined this week by Dr. Richard Pimental-Habib, a Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist, as well as Owner of Well Nest Center, a wellness center.  Dr. Pimental-Habib has seen marked improvement in fulfillment with his clients, and he shares with us how our unconscious can drive our behavior and affect our lives, how we can work on making our unconscious more conscious, and some noninvasive ways to improve our inner terrain.  These are great, green ways to improve our lives!
