Life is a Roller-Coaster-Ride Full of ups & downs It is with your Choices & Decisions As to Whether you Enjoy the Ride Or Let it Destroy your Happiness

The Roller-Coaster-Ride of Life

Life takes us through many ups and downs, from our early years to our later ones. For more than 45 years, I have explored different kinds of therapy that have helped me achieve balance, understanding, and clarity in my mental and emotional state. In this article, I will explain how these therapies can support you in achieving body, mind balance, in following, staying true to your deepest wishes and aspirations.

Many people associate therapy with weakness in their character or personality. However, this is not true. Many famous people have sought various forms of therapy throughout their lives to help them stay balanced, grounded, and motivated to pursue their goals. Therapy is a sign of strength, not weakness. It shows that you are willing to admit that you don’t have all the answers, that life is not perfect, and that you have a strong desire to succeed not only physically, but also emotionally and spiritually. To overcome the stigma of the word “therapy”, some people prefer to call it “life coaching”.

Some Common Reasons for Choosing Therapy!

There are many reasons people choose to have therapy it can be just simply they feel that they aren’t coping with a situation. loss of a loved one. Or it can be that they feel “stuck” that there is a blockage or something ‘Stopping” them from achieving their dreams or goals. Or something more serious and debilitating, depleting them of being the person they want to be and living life the way in which they would like.

5 Essential Keys and Benefits of Therapy

  1. Getting Perspective about Your Life, What You want to Achieve & How you want to BE!!!
  2. Clarity: Over the years, I have helped thousands of people work through Step by Step any underlying emotional upsets or deep-seated trauma bring clarity and understanding as to where and how these have caused blockages, emotional unbalance to where this has stemmed from. To bring those experiences to a level of being able to let go these past experiences, to looking at what it is now that they would like to be different. Going about changing thought processes to positive, empowering ones that will support how and what you want to be different with you and your life. 
  3. Exposing your Inner Core: Being able to express what is in your very inner core, without prejudice is what is significant for bringing about positive changes.
  4. Family and Friends:  Will often distance themselves, when you are continually talking about your problems and issues. Especially if you don’t seem to be finding a solution. By engaging with therapy outside the family is often beneficial in mending family relationships and issues that have stemmed from your own issues. Once you begin to work through your issues this makes it much easier with re-building, building positive relationships with family and friends. Choosing external support to work through your problems, concerns and issues will be beneficial for you in preserving your valued relationships and building new ones by receiving non-biased support. It’s interesting as well, because a family member might suggest something that you will ignore, but when a stranger suggests the same thing, you will often take notice.
  5. Positive Outcomes: The therapy you choose will be positive for you and your loved ones because you will be working through these problems and issues without involving them in your innermost feelings that at present you may want to keep close to you but feel the need to share them with someone to bring about balance.

How Therapy can Support &

Speed up your Success

One of the keys to success is to openly discuss your concerns, fears and insecurities that may block your progress.

For instance, you may have a goal to eat healthier and feel better, but you keep going back to eating badly. This may happen because a subconscious voice tells you that it won’t make any difference. To change that voice, you need to talk to an impartial person, such as a therapist, counsellor or coach, who can ask you questions and help you uncover the root cause.

Sometimes, you may face obstacles or challenges in your life that prevent you from achieving what you want. These may stem from emotional issues that you have not resolved. Therapy can be very helpful in this situation, as you can share your worries with someone who can offer you a different perspective. Some of these issues may come from your childhood experiences that are buried in your subconscious. To make therapy work, you need to be honest, have a clear vision of how you want to change, identify what is holding you back, and take charge of your life.

Some of the Situations or Circumstances that can Block your Success if not Dealt with:

  • Divorce
  • Neglect by a caregiver
  • Abuse – physical, mental, sexual abuse, verbal abuse
  • Death of a parent or sibling
  • Addictive care giver
  • Abandonment
  • Emotionally disconnected parent(s)
  • Bullying
  • Negative reinforcement from person of authority
  • Volatile/unsafe/unstable environment
  • Extreme poverty
  • Parent(s) with mental health issues
  • Traumatic or violent attack

It is unfortunate but for most people will experience at least two to three if not more of the events mentioned in a lifetime.  You may have experienced some of these and at the time, coped quite well. Then out of the blue something will occur that will trigger a subconscious memory tucked away cause unbalance in the way of despair.

Do you need Therapy?

I am not going to answer this question for you as the decision is yours. As I mentioned over the years I have utilized many different areas of therapy, with an understanding the importance of Building my Mind, my Emotional Resilience and to bring Clarity of who I am and enabling me to follow through with how I wanted to be as a person and how I wanted my life to be. Not to allow distress, trauma and difficult times to steer me away, but to build an inner strength, knowing I can cope, and I will rise above whatever life experiences I encounter.

Most Successful Model of Therapy

There are a myriad of different types of therapy that have been and are still used today. The most successful model has been that of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a form of therapy used to treat all forms of mental and emotional health disturbances.

The main focus of Cognitive Therapy entails supporting you in getting a clear picture and understanding of how you are thinking, behaving, and communicating, both with yourself and others. I have embraced and expanded this into supporting people with Building a Brilliant Mind, Overcome Health Problems, Change Negative Habits to Bringing Happiness, Fulfilment and Success into their Lives.

I found in my early years of practice if I was going to provide the best support for my clients return to health, that this began with understanding the barriers, blockages and underlying cause of their health problem.
