I’ve been counselling in Vancouver for many years so rarely does a topic come up in that I haven’t run across before.
That said, here are some of the more common reasons folks show up in my practice.
The problem is that our present lifestyle doesn’t mesh well with our primitive “old wiring”. Anxiety is getting provoked even when we’re not facing a life threat.
The good news is that you can be anxiety-free.
In a safe relationship with a psychologist you can gently move through some of the tough emotions that are being bottled up.
In other words, I see my job as “holding” the space for you feel your way through, one baby step at a time.
Self-esteem issues not only create conflicts within yourself they often exacerbate relationship issues with others.
