You may not know the exact reason why you are deciding to choose psychotherapy. Something may not “feel right”, you feel “stuck” in a particular pattern or behaviour, or something is blocking your effort to move forward. A part of you, a caretaking part of your self, knows that you must get help. That part knows you need someone to help you decipher what exactly is happening to you, and knows it has to be a safe place for you to be able to express these dis-pleasurable, scary, or threatening feelings and thoughts. Psychotherapy is that place where someone who is trained to listen to your needs provides an open, non-judgmental environment in which you can start to work with what’s not feeling right.
Psychotherapy is about getting to know yourself, becoming better attuned, and becoming aware of what your whole body is telling you, whether it comes in thoughts, images, or sensations. We really do have the answers within us, and having the guidance of a therapist facilitates enhanced awareness and the capacity to change.
