Who do you THINK you are?
One of the most common 'aha' moments that my clients experience, is the moment they take a step back and notice their thoughts.
The effects of this can be pretty profound. They realise that from that place, they have the power to question whether those thoughts are true, or are a result of old thoughts and beliefs of others. Once they can observe their thoughts, we can then be curious together, as to whether they serve them well, where they come from, and what might happen if they change them.
It takes courage to change the way we think. However painful our life is right now, it's familiar to us. One thing I am certain of, is that no-one I have worked with, has ever regretted taking this leap.
Clients have typically presented with:
'No one will ever love me' 'I will never achieve anything' 'I'm too old to start again'
Your thoughts become your words
Your words become your actions
Your actions become your habits
Your habits become your values
Your values become your destiny
Therapy can help you notice these negative patterns, find the underlying cause, and break the habit.
How exciting to realise what you may actually be capable of, and how your life could change, if you take the courage to change the way you think.
Clients leave therapy with a real sense of who they are, and not who they thought they were. They have gone on to find relationships, start families, return to study, change careers, and two have actually gone on to become therapists themselves!
