"We sometimes live on "autopilot" in life, and have limited awareness of what we are feeling or experiencing, until thoughts, feelings, and experiences trigger intense suffering (e.g. depressed mood, anxiety, self-esteem or relationship problems). In an attempt to help ourselves feel better, we can then develop coping strategies, behaviours, or symptoms that further complicate our lives and drain us of precious energy and joy . However, I believe that just as acorns want to become oak trees, humans want to grow and thrive, and psychotherapy can activate this tendency. "
