I know you are in a lot of pain right now. This pain involves "yucky stuff" showing up, like difficult, nagging thoughts, uncomfortable, painful feelings, distressing memories or even bodily aches and pains. This naturally leads to trying to escape, avoid, distract, deny or using other controlling behaviours to relieve this pain and hurt. Learn ways to ‘unhook' from the yucky stuff by increasing your psychological flexibility. Psychological flexibility is the ability to notice what you are doing and choosing what works to get you where you want to go, even in the presence of obstacles (all that “yucky stuff”).
Teaming up together means benefiting from my over 25 years of experience as a clinically-trained social work therapist Sessions involve learning and building psychological flexibility skills which you are asked to practice in your daily life between sessions, so you can find out what works for you. This Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in action (ACT).
Right now, the critical part of your mind is giving you lots of reasons why you should not be considering counselling. Counselling can be a scary prospect to consider. It involve making efforts to live the life you want according to who & what matters to you. Let's team up to make small, meaningful steps toward the life you want and a better version of you!
