Therapy for Health Challenges
Health or medical conditions leading your life?
You’re feeling anxious and upset that you have to deal with chronic conditions that are unrelenting. They cause you pain and discomfort – and embarrassment. You can’t seem to escape their grasp.
Nothing you’ve tried has worked. You need some sort of relief.
Your relationships are ruined, as you struggle to balance relationships with your conditions.
Nerve pain has been an issue for 20 years.
Nicholas* went through surgery after surgery – at first hopeful, but then uncertain about the success of these operations.
Nicholas was exhausted from doctors’ appointments, going to the hospital, having to find someone to take him there. He couldn’t move like he used to, and he wanted to enjoy his life again.
There were few therapists who could relate to Nicholas, as most gave the standard reflection of how tough it must be – but without curiosity.
Nicholas finally came in for therapy with me and was amazed at the relational style of therapy. He was nervous, as he was encouraged to try new things that he was never asked to try before. BUT it all managed to make the condition more tolerable, even though the pain still existed.
Nicholas felt comfortable sharing how experiences had led him down a path of despair that he didn’t know how to escape. Through therapy, he found his inner-resilience with a newfound set of tools to help him access his own strengths. He had resources he could turn to that would remind him he was the leader of his life and not his pain.
