Stress and Change are inevitable in all our lives. It can make life very challenging at times. We all experience stress from time to time and need support for change.
There are many things that can cause difficulty in one's life; such as challenges with relationships, past or present traumas, chronic diseases/pain, loss of a relationship, a loved one, your career or a change in your overall health. Each individual experiences stress in their own way. Some become depressed, withdrawn, have nightmares, are anxious and overwhelmed most of the time, self medicate with alcohol/drugs, while others become angry or isolate; and can become physically ill.
I believe it is important to create a safe and supportive environment for clients to process and experience life issues. This provides a setting where a person may self-explore in order to access their personal history and to recognize how it affects their current relationships and behaviors.
