Individual Psychotherapy with Adults

All of us are living the life we have created ourselves. Therefore, the most effective way to change things is by discovering one’s role in having created the current circumstances. Taking responsibility for one’s life fully means greater control of one’s thoughts and emotions, manifesting more of what is desired, and allowing for the unwanted to fade out of one’s experience.

Depression

Possible biological factors aside, depression is a product of the person habitually thinking negative thoughts about themselves and their circumstances often enough such that the thoughts have turned into beliefs. The holding on to such beliefs via thought repetition creates feelings of being overwhelmed, damaged, afraid, powerless, unloved, alone, etc. Such mental states are incongruent with one’s innate desire to feel good and they can become a significant obstacle on the path to creating one’s ideal life. Addressing such unhelpful beliefs and associated feelings, learning to value and pursue feeling good, and lowering one’s resistance to being more fully aligned with the inner self is an effective way to gain control over one’s mental states and facilitate the creating of the life one wants to live.

Anxiety

Anxiety is a state of fear, often of the unknown. The presence of fear in one’s life is an indication that the person has intense desires that are not being allowed to fully realize. Allowing desire to flow and learning how to turn thoughts to things is one way of reducing and eliminating fear out of one’s experience.

Relationships

The physical and emotional experience of having relationships offers the greatest joy and expansion for us as human beings. Relationships with others cannot flourish if the relationship with the self is not treated as the most important relationship. Becoming aligned with one’s inner being first is the way to allow all other relationships to become unburdened from undue expectations and be lighter, more enjoyable and satisfying.

Financial Success

Financial issues are an indication of the person holding on to unhelpful beliefs which prevent abundance from flowing into the person’s experience, i.e. fear of not-enoughness. Identifying and replacing such beliefs helps the person to begin to feel prosperous even in the absence of the actual money, which then leads to them finding their way to manifesting the financial abundance they are seeking.

In other words, one has to reverse the commonly held belief of “I’ll believe it when I see it” to “I’ll see it when I believe it”.

Health and Wellness

Physical health and appearance are a barometer of the degree to which one is aligned with their true self. Various ways of being out of touch with one’s inner being can lead to development of dis-ease and outer appearance of looking unwell. When one becomes more aligned with themselves, it facilitates the body’s natural ability to heal itself as well as points the person in the direction of making the necessary life style changes to promote greater physical health and wellbeing.
