Clients often ask, “When will I feel better or change?”—not realizing that just by commencing therapy, they have already taken the first steps towards the healing, growth, and change they are looking for.
Psychotherapy can help to ease present suffering and heal deep-rooted past traumas buried in the unconscious that inform present suffering. Feelings and thoughts that are consciously unavailable are out of our control. Through dialogue we work together to make conscious what is unconscious.
Deep, attuned listening provided by the therapist can enable you to feel heard and seen in a new way. This can facilitate a feeling of relief and lightness in you just after the first few sessions. It can also help you to begin to deeply connect to and know yourself. This is a knowing that brings about changes in your old patterns of feeling, thinking, and behaving. Therapy can enable you to reach important life decisions more intentionally and consciously, and promote self-actualization.
Change is about how much of ourselves we both invest in your therapy. My invitation to you is to try to trust the process. Consider this: you’ve been living a certain way your entire life. Can it change just after a couple of months of sessions? Deep and lasting change takes time.
