Many of my clients complain of feeling stuck in their present thought processes. They face internal conflicts both big and small. They are aware of the way they want to react to situations and approach life, but often they feel sabotaged by destructive ways of thinking. Often these patterns have developed because of traumatic experiences that have occurred over time. Because of these thought processes, individuals can feel symptoms of anxiety and depression. People usually suffer in silence for years without anyone around them having any indication of their internal battle. This can lead to a strong sense of isolation.
