What are your partner's needs? Most of the time we assume our partner has the same needs as we do. Typically they do not. When we discover the needs of our partner and learn to effectively communicate our needs to them we can radically transform our relationships.
Utilizing the bodies ability to heal is a crucial understanding in our personal growth. Energy Psychology facilitates this natural health and is extremely effective in the treatment of many common issues such as anxiety, depression, and trauma.
Recognizing that most common issues that bring an individual to a therapist revolve around thought process is a big deal. We can change how we think, thereby treating effectively the issues we face. Most problems that I see whether anxiety, depression, or an overall unhappiness with life are significantly benefited through CBT.
In my practice I often see people for reasons such as anxiety or depression, and rarely do we find a need for medication. After speaking with them for a period of time, we discover that there is usually some level of discontent with current life circumstances. Most people that come to me for therapy have some level of upset around where they think life should be or the direction life is going. This upset often has contributed to troubles in their relationships with others at home or at work.
When people begin to see that they have been living their life based on what they were told they 'ought' to do by someone else or what they believed they 'should' be doing, they start to recognize the source of their emotional upset. At this point a real change can begin to take place. When this change takes place we begin to accept ourselves unconditionally, regardless of past behaviors whether good or bad.
As we recognize the important roles that thoughts, values, and psychological needs play in our lives, we can begin to take ownership of the direction of our lives. This direction is what most people are lacking. The increased sense of control that comes with a deeper understanding of who we are and why we do what we do, along with the right tools to help along the path, leads to a life of decreased worry and stress.
