THE SUPPORT YOU
Life can bring challenges and stress that may leave us feeling overwhelmed and unsure of our next steps. It is not a question of if life will have hardships, but when, and what we will choose to do when faced with them. Just as important as facing the terrible, is the challenge of continuing to see the beautiful things in our lives as well -- which are there. It's a challenge, but one of the hopes of therapy is to try and hold and accept the beautiful and the terrible together because they often live together. Therapy, 'the talking cure' is proven to be particularly helpful with acquiring insight into situations, learning to listen to what symptoms are telling us, and gaining strength and courage to make the changes necessary to bring relief, and improve quality of life. Therapy is not a solitary journey, and for most that is the most comforting aspect.
"Tell the truth. Say what is happening.
Allow what is, and allow it to be known."
