The average person spends about eight hours of their day at work. If you don’t love what you’re doing, that’s a pretty miserable way to exist. The felt sense of achievement and purpose is an almost necessary component of a happy life. If you’re unhappy with your current job, feel lost without direction, or just want to take your career to the next level, therapy is for you.
The quality of our relationships determines the quality of our lives. Humans beings are wired for connection- yet now more than ever, so many of us feel lonely, isolated and left wondering what we’re doing wrong. Whether it’s dating, friends or family relationships, therapy can help you gain the skills to get what you want from the relationships in your life and help you learn about yourself in the process.
Our capacity for productivity (in all forms) is limited by stress to our system. How we take care of our bodies, the environments we inhabit, the energies we’re exposed to, our patterns down to the media we consume can either expand or inhibit our ability to tolerate stress. Therapy is all about developing awareness of what and how we’re being impacted and using what’s in our control to maximize our resilience to stress.
The most important relationship we’ll ever have is our relationship with ourselves. How we relate to ourselves shapes how we view the world, interact with others and informs our expectations for the future. Therapy helps us connect with ALL the parts of ourselves, including those we may have abandoned or left behind out of shame. When we’re able to accept and fully integrate the fragmented pieces of our personalities, we can truly experience the full strength of our potential.
Most of us have experienced some form of trauma throughout the course of our lives. While sexual assault or other life-threatening events are more obvious forms of trauma, any intensely painful experience can leave a traumatic imprint on the psyche. When left unchecked, trauma has an insidious way of leading us to self-destruction, time and time again. Many people don’t realize the impact of their traumas until they become unearthed in therapy.
What you’re feeling is a direct reaction to your thoughts. This is why talk-therapy is the primary treatment method for improving mood. Talking, in the context of therapy allows us to verbalize the thoughts that trigger our mood states, bring them to a conscious level to be properly examined, understood and modified when needed.
