How we feel in our lives should never be compared to how others feel in theirs. Our experiences and our reactions to what life throws at us are our own and nobody else's.
Some people come to see me for therapy after a breakdown of a relationship or a bereavement or perhaps even just the loss of an idea of how things are turning out. Sometimes feelings of anxiety or feelings of purposelessness can seem unsurmountable and inexplicable. Some people find it hard to make a decision or to make sense of things in their lives . Others feel although on the surface they have everything they need there is still a feeling that something is not right.
Psychotherapy offers a space in which to feel space to talk about these concerns and to sit with a therapist someone who is trained to be nonjudgemental and who isn't part of your everyday life. Sharing this experience can help wrestle with more philosophical questions around where we see ourselves in this world and to consider what it means to be human.
