Individuals often come to therapy when:
- They feel stuck and what they are currently doing is not helping to solve the problem or ease the pain, or
- They want something more, a better relationship, personal fulfillment, and don’t know how to get there or stay the course.
There are times in our lives when each of us is faced with a problem, pain or dilemma.
This is a normal and natural part of the human experience. In fact, these struggles are where we grow and learn about who we are and what we need. The problem is that we have become a society obsessed with feeling good all the time and do not see these periods for the opportunities they offer.
Most people spend their entire life avoiding the pain they fear will be unearthed in facing their current and past struggles. This anxiety is pacified with numerous unhealthy behaviours, and often in the form of physical, mental or emotional addictions. Anything not to feel — abusing alcohol, drugs or food; being a relationship/love addict or avoiding relationships/love all together.
