Our Healthy Adult part is vital for all of the changes we wish to achieve in the Schema Therapy process. Our Healthy Adult is our compassionate, nurturing, assertive, wise and empathic side who is able to recognise limits and set priorities.
Our Healthy Adult side enables us to bond with others, express our feelings and needs, experience self-value, identity and deal with realistic limits, among other qualities.
