One of the concepts that we teach in Root-Cause Therapy is called Mirroring.
When we judge others (which is a natural human thing that we do as a part of our experience), it can become a key to healing by discovering our shadow aspects.
Shadow aspects are our blind spots.
Things that we do, how we behave unconsciously.
Mirroring, or noticing where we judge others, gives us a chance to shed light on these shadow aspects.
And to see where we are actually seeing ourselves in others
Where we are actually judging ourselves. For example, judging someone for how they dress.
If this is something that you notice a lot and find yourself internally making negative comments as you often scan people up and down …
Then most likely it’s something that you may feel insecure about within yourself.
The root-cause of this shadow aspect could be one of many layers, and will be different from person to person.
But for example it may be…
Imagine for a moment that you’re in your mother's womb and you can hear your parents having an awful argument.
You feel your mother's anger, loneliness and hurt... as her emotions pump through your tiny body.
As you are in the womb, you are getting to know yourself, the world and the environment that you are going to be born into.
The range of cortisol and the stress that you feel amplifies your conscious thoughts and a belief burns into your biology that… conflict is scary.
You are now encoded with the belief that you should have fear of conflict & that this is what relationships look like.
Your parents don’t know any better, as they were shown the same & weren’t aware of any childhood wounds that may be playing out in their relationship.
Now that you're an adult, you may still have this belief.
It possibly plays out in your relationships as it’s been encoded into your brain & body that this is what ‘love looks like’.
Structure of a Root-Cause Therapy Session
A structured sheet of questions to elicit what's happening in the clients life, both externally & emotionally.
Opening up a dialogue with the body using methods of Kinesiology to determine the subconscious beliefs the client has that are holding them back.
Finding the Root-Cause.
Using a visualisation and direct language speaking the unconscious mind we find the first originating event where the belief was created and emotion suppressed.
The emotion is processed and the event can be looked at with 'new eyes'.
New learnings are gained so now the memory has a different energetic imprint.

When it comes to treatment of mental health issues, such as depression, PTSD, anxiety and more it has been found over and over again that healing trauma can be effective in recovery of many symptoms that people experience which negatively affects them day to day.
A therapy which often gets spoken about is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). This was discovered by a psychologist Francine Shapiro whom invented EMDR in the 1980s when she noticed that moving her eyes from side to side seemed to reduce the occurrence of her own distressing memories.
Although there have been some clinical trials for EMDR, the purpose of this article is to compare this older therapy to one of the latest therapies being introduced to heal trauma and its negative effects, Root-cause Therapy. As the name suggests, this therapy is all about getting to the Root-cause of peoples current presenting issues.
Below we have made a comparison chart to look at how they differ;...
