Andrea Hunt: "Parts work with clients can be profoundly transformative. Watching clients create representations of their parts and then befriend them is such an honour. I am moved by the deep compassion that can be accessed in this way.

What happens when you name your worry and fight/flight/freeze responses as parts? How could you befriend these parts?
