“Sarah really gets me and I love our sessions together. I respect her opinions and counseling. She is empathic, understanding and very thoughtful and direct in pointing out the issues to help me make progress.”
The pace of modern life can leave us feeling depleted. It can be difficult to make our wellbeing a priority when we are dealing with sadness, stress, or feeling overwhelmed. But when we don’t take care of ourselves, we have less to give to others. We also have less to give to the world. Unresolved stresses can take a toll on our personal and professional relationships, career performance, and even our health. Our process of individual therapy in Bryn Mawr (and beyond, thanks to modern technology!) helps you to
- Develop new strategies to help you succeed in all aspects of your life;
- Come up with effective communication strategies, problem solving skills, and stress management tactics;
- Accept existing problems and cope with them;
- Set goals and proactively work toward them with each session.
Working with a therapist gives you the opportunity to think and talk about the issues that are on your mind. You also get to try out new effective ways of communicating. While confiding in friends and family can feel safe, the people who are closest to you are often not objective and usually are untrained in the therapeutic process. Therapy provides you with an objective third-party ally to help work through life’s problems.
In addition to processing and problem-solving about current issues, therapy can offer you the opportunity to resolve past traumas and heal old wounds. When we have not resolved issues from the past, we are often not able to show up fully in the present. Because of this, we are less able to give our best effort in the here-and-now. While it is not usually effective or worthwhile to talk spend a lot of time going over our old problems, effective therapies allow us to resolve these issues once and for all.
Accepting what is, while working to improve it
Transformative Therapy’s approach to individual therapy is grounded in unconditional acceptance of what is, while providing space to create something better. Spending time and resources trying to keep our problems at bay can be exhausting. We learn to acknowledge that problems exist and to accept ourselves anyway. This is a great first step toward resolving many of the issues that we face.
Often clients find that just talking about the problems that have been bothering them makes them feel better. Sometimes there are traumatic events that need to be healed. Holistic modalities such as EFT and hypnotherapy help resolve those issues quickly and painlessly.
