Compassionate Inquiry

“Bringing compassion, healing, freedom and connection to humanity.” - Dr. Gabor Maté

Find the root of your trauma

Compassionate Inquiry (CI) is a powerful tool that can bring a person’s awareness to events that occurred in childhood that were painful and difficult to bear, and that the person has protected themselves from experiencing. Compassionate Inquiry sessions have been used for physical and emotional healing in a wide range of areas: trauma, physical disease processes, chronic pain, emotional and mental disturbances, addictions, PTSD, relationship problems, reoccurring problematic patterns, and lack of understanding of why life is not working out the way we want. In short Compassionate Inquiry is helping people to be liberated from experiences and the resulting underlying beliefs with life changing growth and healing.

What Is Compassionate Inquiry?

Compassionate Inquiry is a psychotherapeutic approach developed by Dr. Gabor Maté that reveals what lies beneath the appearance we present to the world. Using Compassionate Inquiry, both the individual and therapist unveil the level of consciousness, mental climate, hidden assumptions, implicit memories and body states that form the real message that words both express and conceal.
Through Compassionate Inquiry, the client can recognize the unconscious dynamics that run their lives and how to liberate themselves from them.

What Our Clients Say

V. Costa, Germany August 2021

"Compassionate Inquiry, in particular with Terri, heals your body, mind, and soul. The moment I started doing Compassionate Inquiry work with Terri, I started to see light and the possibility to heal; it revolutionized my life.

I am 34 years old, and I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus in January 2020. Prior to that I had various symptoms for 14 years, living with strong Raynaud’s Syndrome, stomach issues, no monthly menstruation, Celiac, enlarged liver, skin rashes on my body and face, and the most prominent problems were my daily joint pains and very strong inflammations of my hands. My hands were in so much pain, that often I was unable to use them at all. I was desperate mentally and physically. I was scared. I was sad.

Now I am in 100 % remission. I have done Compassionate Inquiry sessions with Terri for the past year and a daily practice of yoga to get where I am now. Blood work results show that all my diagnoses are in remission since September 2021. I have never felt so strong and healthy in my life as I do today."
