Say what you mean and act how you feel because those that matter don’t mind, and those that mind don’t matter.
– Dr. Seuss
These wise simple words are the end goal of therapy; to arrive at a place where we are more at peace being ourselves and being with others.
How to get there is the challenge we all face at one point or another in our lives.
No matter what the difficulty or distress is called: depression, anxiety, relationship breakdown, burnout, grief, parenting, addiction, etc., we are all struggling with the desire to be at peace with ourselves and with others.
Psychotherapy is one way of getting to that place.
