How Therapy Helps

Seeking change is the first step.

Seeking help is the second; problems often accompany feeling isolated or lonely. 

 

Therapy can help with change by;

  • Having a new relational experience; we are in this together.

  • Feeling safe to open up parts that have felt unsafe to share before.

  • Gaining insight and awareness, we all have blind spots.

  • Noticing, experiencing and being present with your emotions; creating a natural flow again.

  • Reconnecting the mind and the body.

  • Acknowledging and validating the glimmers of transformation; this is key to growth.

  • Simply allowing yourself to slow down and be really heard.

The brain has a tendency towards negative bias.  This is a result of our ancestors many, many years ago needing to be ultra-alert to danger in order to survive. 

The good news is because of the brain’s neuroplasticity (ability to re-wire itself) Therapy can help.
