Lifespan Integration is a gentle therapy that works on a deep
neural level to promote rapid healing in adults who were abused
or neglected as children. This new technique helps clients move
into a positive present by revisiting and restructuring repetitive,
self-destructive patterns that were set up in early life.
During an LI session the therapist and client begin by identifying
a difficulty in the client’s present life. The client focuses
on body sensations to find an earlier root (neural network) that
holds distorted beliefs and partially processed emotions, much

then use the tools of Lifespan Integration to “re-set” the
client’s neural system to move past unpleasant feelings
and dysfunctional patterns connected to the past and establish
more effective and mature responses to all aspects of adult life.
Even those who have poor or fragmented memories of a difficult
childhood benefit from LI therapy. After the therapy clients
find that they react to stressors in age-appropriate ways rather
than falling back into old patterns. They feel better about life,
are more self-accepting, and are better able to enjoy their intimate
Lifespan Integration was developed by Peggy Pace, who trained
Donna Morrish in the technique. To learn more visit www.lifespanintegration.com.
