You don’t need to suffer alone

Behind the part of us that we present to the world, for so many of us there’s something else; something puzzling and problematic… a source of distress and sometimes shame.

Stress, depression, anxiety, panic, anger, tears, sleeplessness – responses to difficult and traumatic events, work and personal relationship problems and life stage transitions, such as becoming a family, divorce, the death of a loved one or retirement.

Then there’s a feeling some of us have – which friends and family may even say to us. You should be happier and more confident; why haven’t you realised your personal potential and life goals by now?

In all of this there actually Is potential, and your own unique story, and a better way of being.

Begin to experience life instead of enduring it!

The hidden suffering that can impair our ability to cope well and, at worst, leave us just existing and feeling hopelessly stuck, really can transform with safe space for healthy reflection.

Saying out loud can be so much more than a feeling release (catharsis) although this, in itself, is somewhat beneficial.

For every common problematic experience, there are a wealth of psychological methods for making sense/balancing perspective, problem-solving, improving communication, gaining insight into blocks and strengths, easing symptoms, actively working through difficult experiences and improving well-being.

What’s more, going down this road can take you to a place where – to your surprise – you find more about your own best ways to understand and express yourself, an appreciation of what you value in life and how to shape and enhance your experience in the world.
