My ideal client is aware that some primary positive feeling has changed. The positive feeling has suddenly, or over time, become negative and painful. Because of this change, he or she may have reluctantly given up on a long term goal, or may be in the midsts of a divorce where there was once loving contentment that has disappeared. Sometimes the pain is so severe that the Client considers ending his or her life. No matter what the circumstance, this Client is longing for relief from the pain. The Client needs a Therapist who can, incrementally over time, help to alleviate the pain and begin a more positive approach to living life.
I believe that how we feel, affects how we function; and how we function, in turn, can affect our feelings. I will assess as accurately as possible, how my client is feeling. We will then analyze the interaction between feelings and functioning; the goal being to use effort to improve functioning and then observe if feelings improve significantly.
Perhaps I've been where you are now. Certainly not exactly where you are, but it was a time when I realized something had shifted deep inside me. For the first time in my life I needed help. You may be having a similar or less urgent experience. I say this to convey to you that though you may feel uncomfortable seeking help, it may be exactly what will help!
