Find Balance, Feel Good!
The purpose of psychotherapy is for you to find balance in your life so that you can face life’s good and bad challenges constructively. The purpose is also to build resilience. Resilience is the ability to achieve positive outcomes in your life – mentally, socially, emotionally, and spiritually – despite adversity.
When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves. -Viktor E. Frankl
How can psychotherapy help you?
You can make peace with things in your background that still bother you.
You can develop your emotional intelligence.
You become more compassionate and curious about life and toward others.
You can make peace with things in your past that still bother you
You understand yourself and others better – which can lead to forgiveness.
It will be easier for you to be in the present instead of either in the past or the future.
You can learn to love yourself – also the parts of you that you try to hide away.
If you’re out of balance, have been pressured by the significant demands found in many workplaces, if your boundaries have been repeatedly crossed, it might be that you’re suffering from stress. Stress is a severe physical and psychological condition that can become chronic if you don’t seek help. Stress impacts your nervous system, making you feel constantly agitated, as if you always need to be doing something, unable to rest or relax, and disconnected, all while being exhausted and struggling to think clearly. If you’re experiencing stress, I can help you regain balance by releasing the stress that has accumulated in your nervous system, allowing it to return to equilibrium.
Many untreated cases of stress evolve into depression. Depression is one of the conditions that significantly affects one’s quality of life – you become passive, lose interest in social interactions, perhaps lose appetite and oversleep. It might also manifest as difficulty sleeping and constant fatigue. Depression is also a state within an imbalanced nervous system, and you can improve by working together to restore that balance.
As children, we need to suppress aspects that don’t fit into our family system and society in order to fit in. Children under 10 always prioritize attachment over authenticity, as attachment means survival for a child. As we become adults, we can either live on autopilot – within the framework set during the first 20 years of our lives – or we can reflect on our lives and try to understand who we are and what we have to contribute. Most people have experiences in their lives that “awaken” them from autopilot – like having their first child, falling in love, or having their desires fulfilled. However, many revert to autopilot because they don’t know how to remain open to life. If this resonates with you, I can help you explore who you are, what you want, and how to remain open.
