About me and my therapy practice

“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards” (Soren Kierkegaard)

Sometimes we may feel that everything we experience in life is difficult, challenging or simply doesn't make sense anymore. The amount of pressure we need to handle every day combined with all these repressed and unprocessed memories of things we never dealt with can easily lead to generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder, phobias and heightened stress level.

What happens next are the by-products of the above, which amongst others are: family issues, relationship difficulties, separation, affairs, depression, prolonged sadness, lack of motivation and energy, addictions and many others.

We all possess physical, mental/emotional and sexual healths. When our physical health needs attention, we go to see a doctor. Sadly, we often disregard the latter. Negligence of our emotional or sexual healths will affect the others and often leads to our physical health issues. This scenario in many cases creates a vicious cycle, where we see a doctor for physical misalignments without attending to the real causes of our suffering.

We think we are strong and we can handle it all, where in fact we are getting weaker, less resilient to adversities and prone to negative feelings & reactions.

At times like this, therapeutic process can come really handy and can help us to see our lives through a different pair of lens. No matter what, therapy can be a practical investment in your personal well being, health and prosperousness. Once in the process, you will gain awareness that will help you in developing new powerful meanings of yourself and the world around you, and that empowering level of consciousness can never be taken away from you.
