Depression. Depression can be a very difficult place to come out of as the moods of depression mean essentially that life can appear bleak. Negative thought patterns tend to go round and round in a circular and unhelpful way, and the feelings stay uncomfortable and painful as a result. However, thoughts and feelings can gradually change as you learn how to adapt these patterns to a healthier way of living (see FAQ page on Transforming).
Anxiety. Anxiety and Panic are feelings that as well as being uncomfortable can sometimes be frightening. This can stop you living your life in an enjoyable way. By learning you do not need to feel like this, then the feelings can gradually subside (see FAQ page on Transforming).
Pain. Difficult and painful physical and emotional feelings also tends to mean that it is more difficult to think clearly. When we are in mental and or physical pain, this can mean that it is more difficult to get out of focussing on anything else than the pain. By learning that, for example, physical pain is combined of the primary pain, and that secondary pain caused by the stress and tension which likely makes that pain worse, we can learn how to lessen our experienced pain. A lot of difficult and trauma related experiences can become embodied. You can learn how to lessen your painful feelings, sometimes greatly (see FAQ page on Transforming). EMDR can help also with pain and trauma as can Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.
Bereavement and Grief. These are areas which can be difficult to talk about. Grief can easily become ‘Disenfranchised’ as others find it difficult to hear you experiences. When we lose something in our lives, for example, it might be a person, a milestone in life that has been missed, a pet, and many other experiences this can be very distressing. Friends and family and colleagues might find it difficult to be objective. This might open a ‘can of worms’ and might bring up something for them also. Talking in a confidential setting can help clarify in a helpful way what is going on for you (see FAQ page on Transforming).
