What’s your attitude to change? Are you reluctant, hesitant or resistant? Excited and maybe rushed; itching to get started on something? Or are you angry or resentful about changes that are beyond your control?
As well as the actual change we’re facing, recognising our attitude to it is important information, in developing our self-awareness. We are then able to explore it and form a clearer response, maybe in the light of other changes we’ve faced along the way.
Pace is also an important part of who we are and how we function. What’s your natural pace? Are you slow or fast, impulsive or measured?
If you’re thinking about making some changes in your life, how do you know you’re ready? What do you notice? Where does this impulse begin? Does it start as a thought, a dream or a fantasy? Are you aware of particular feelings: maybe frustration, boredom, sadness, anger, excitement or restlessness? Or are you physically tired or generally overwhelmed, with particular physical symptoms?
We can work together in the present, focused both on what you bring, and how you bring yourself. We might look at the particular change you’re experiencing, whether voluntary or involuntary, and how you might start to form something that is right for you. We might not be in control of what happens to us from the outside; in working in therapy we can find ways of forming our response to others, our situation and ourselves.
If you would like further information about how we might work together please contact me to arrange an initial session.
