As individuals we are on a journey of self-discovery and we hope that we feel satisfied with our life choices. Sometimes we can feel lost along the way and become confused about what we want and what makes us happy.

Sometimes we start to experience stress, anxiety or depression for example. However, most of the time what these symptoms are just trying to get our attention telling us that something is not quite right. We often try and sweep them under the carpet and deny there could be any real psychological cause. That’s what the brain’s “pain pathway” wants us to do – to avoid pain. However, this is exactly what causes us to stay stuck or distressed. When you instead approach, ie. face these challenges with the help of a good therapist you can explore what is really going on for you and get help to decide what is a good choice for you. You will also learn good coping strategies to address these challenges and therefore these symptoms are likely to reduce and often in fact completely go.

A good therapist will help you explore your journey and your choices so that you can have a life that is lived to the fullest.
