Asking for help is a sign of strength.
It is commonly believed that participating in therapy is an indication of being weak. Actually, therapy is a place for strong people who have been doing the best they can with what they have and what they know thus far. Whatever led you to this decision, you recognize that life has been lifing and you are seeking change!
“Maybe you are searching among branches, for what only appears in the roots.”
You’re struggling to answer the question, “Who am I?” because your life experiences have blurred what use to be very clear. You have more questions than answers and feel overwhelmed with many emotions. You count yourself out because you don’t believe that you have much to offer. You discredit your positive attributes because you don’t see yourself as “that person.” Your childhood experiences are impacting your perspective, decisions, and relationships and this is taking you by surprise. You thought that when you became an adult, things would be different. You imagined and hoped that the past would be the past but this hasn’t been the case. You’ve tried to get through these challenges but haven’t been able to despite your very best efforts.
If you are looking for support and guidance through anxiety, trauma and self esteem, I’d be honored to walk with you through these challenges. Admitting you can’t do everything on your own, is the first step toward achieving wellness in a fast paced, demanding world.
The good news is, asking for help gets easier with a little practice. The way in which we cope in the world is greatly influenced by how we see the world. Asking for help, and obtaining a fresh perspective is often the first and most profound step toward developing the mental muscle needed to become stronger. The more support you gain, the better equipped you will be to take on bigger challenges and achieve more successes.
Whether it would be your first time beginning therapy or you’ve tried before, feel free to request a FREE 15 minute consultation call to discuss the process.
