Focus on the new you
It is really important to focus on the end goal.
During therapy you will be exploring your identity, questioning why you do what you do.
Benefits of therapy
Anxiety, depression and OCD can be all consuming, leaving you with little room for anything else. By learning psychological flexibility during your therapy you will be able to focus your mind on what you choose rather than on those worrying, anxious thoughts.
Having someone on your side
You may have tried other types of therapy with varying degrees of success. Some people find that self-help strategies work but most people find they can’t do it on their own.
It is good to feel that you have someone beside you, encouraging you to make those changes but not judging you if it’s difficult.
Helping you to understand what you want and the real reasons behind how you feel
Often, coming to an awareness of what you want is the first step in the process of change.
- Perhaps you feel depressed and don’t know how to escape from it.
- Maybe you find yourself preoccupied with anxious thoughts and feel worn out by them.
- Sometimes you dread social situations and want to become more confident talking to people.
- Or are you obsessively doing certain things to help you feel better and more in control, but want to stop.
