We at Willing Ways provide the international standard treatment and are known for our results not only in Pakistan but across the borders as well. Our expertise does not end here we are recognized for our ‘counseling for change’ programs. Change that help individuals reach their goals that could not be accomplished because of some defined obstacles. We help remove those obstacles scientifically and hence a miracle happens.
In this video Dr Shefali talks about how can we truly accept our children unconditionally. She indicates that this could be done only if we accept them who they are rather what we wish or want them to be. She beautifully described it that we need to accept our children in “as is form”. She explains it further that how our children come to us is how they are meant to exist actually in this world. She highlight later that by saying so, she actually point towards the inner soul not the values we teach them. Talking further she says, that every child has a right to live a life in their soul form, and that is their birth right. She later shares that we need to accept our children not in parts but all of them, which she further explain as to accept their entire feeling, honor their experience, respect them and during the process empower them. Not to label them or be judgmental about them. Not doing so will mean that we are dishonoring them for who they are. Let them experience every feeling free of shame and rejection.
