As a psychologist I believe that just as our body can heal a certain degree of illness and injury, so too our brain can heal and process a great deal of experiences, even when these are debilitating. So it is that we go through life in a more or less adapted way, balancing pleasure and pain, accumulating antibodies and scars, experience and resilience.
Sometimes however we may be faced with situations that are beyond our natural capacity to heal and we need help; this could happen because the problem overwhelms us, is depleting us of energy over time or simply taking us to the point where we are ready to make a change.
The reasons to seek help may be more clinically based, such as a recurrent bouts of depression or anxiety; it may be related to issues in a relationship with a significant person like a partner, parent or sibling; or maybe our ability to sleep and relax have been compromised and we live in a constant high level of stress and lack of energy and motivation; perhaps the problem is rooted in a traumatic experience, no matter how long ago; or perhaps we want to change a long established habit like a desire to stop smoking, lose weight or no longer bite our nails.
Whatever outcome we want to change, we probably need to change what we do; and if we need to change what we do, that change could start here.
I believe that a combination of coping techniques together with a deep understanding of the psychological mechanisms and resolution systems can make a difference - the difference that could make us feel on top of the world.
