"Life is full of challenges. We don't always have a choice what challenges we face. But we can choose how we view or overcome these challenges. I believe that we each have our own reserve of resilience waiting to be tapped into. Most of the time we have the strength to face these challenges. Sometimes we reach out to our friends and family for support and that is all we need. At other times, these challenges can overwhelm us and our system of support. We feel alone and helpless."

"I believe it takes a lot of courage to enroll in therapy. It can mean accepting that we need extra support to cope with different barriers that prevent us from living fulfilling lives. The reason is unique for everyone. Reaching out for support is a skill itself and a direction towards healing. I believe in resilience through self-awareness, embracing the self and identifying power within. In my experience this can be achieved through balanced health within emotional, mental, physical and spiritual realms. I welcome anyone who feels they may need some support in reaching into their inner strengths and building on new skills. "

It could be a sense that things are "good enough" just as they are, or even a fear of hoping for better.
