On Inner Child Healing

Lila Caffery, MA, CCHT

Inner Child Healing is a deep spiritual and experiential way of healing old, often unknown or forgotten wounds from childhood that keep holding you back from getting the love and power that you seek. You may choose to do the longer and deeper work that requires a commitment to the completion of the whole journey. It is worth every step made possible with loving support, humor, and hard work!
Perhaps you need more direct, here-and-now coaching to develop your inner resources to reach specific life goals and solve real life problems. Life Coaching is then the best and shortest way forward. Either way, the seeds are already there, within you!
You may come to restore the loss of intimacy in a relationship, to find a way toward connection from a place of loneliness or isolation, to learn to handle conflict. Whether you are looking for a mate, making the relationship you have more satisfying or to face the ending of one, you may just need some direction and support in finding your own answers, believing in your own power to grow, create and overcome.
Finding, excelling in, or changing a career path is another way of learning to use your power for and belief in your innate and special gifts that will be made manifest by a strong coaching relationship. Successful business people rely on that special coaching support.
The way forward is for you to choose after talking it over in a consultation either in person, in a video chat or on the phone. Call to set up the first appointment to start reaching for your goals. They are achievable. You deserve to have the life you dream of.

"Thank you for helping me renounce my self doubt, isolation, and fear.
I've always wanted to do something like this for myself."


“Doing inner child work with Lila Caffery made a DRAMATIC difference in my life. With Lila’s help I confronted – and ultimately shifted – negative core beliefs around abandonment that were sabotaging me in relationships – romantic and professional.
I’ve done a lot of therapy – I’ve had maybe a dozen therapists over the 20 years of my adult life – Lila is the only one who was able to take me into the core of the issues that I needed to work on. I could’t recommend this work more highly.”
Robert Friedman

"The mask of my smile was very thick and it contained fear and deep sorrow. I wish I could love many people with a true smile. Thank you for holding me
and accepting me"
