Personal wellness: Being more consciously aware

Personal and psychological well-being is our natural state, the capacity for happiness is our default position, but things can sometimes go wrong, or there are things that impact us. Sometimes it's a love affair we feel broken-hearted about, or an absent or scolding parent. To cope and to be fully you, one needs to dig deep, as well as offer oneself the chance to heal. Therapy is a formal way of addressing these core personal stories that we carry and the symptoms that they manifest in us.                                                                                                                                                                               

  • Symptoms of anxietyAnxiety is associated with the fight, flight, freeze or friendly reflex. As human beings we have a strong response to threat and stress that is highly attuned, automatic and that neurochemically is processed faster than we can register the stressor consciously, so it's hard just to ignore. Instead one can think about how to learn from it.

  • Signs of depressionDepression is at its core a feeling and problem to do with hopelessness. It can involve our sense of self in life and our experience in the world. It can be useful to consider depression as, in addition to suffering, also clearly bringing a challenge to the self. Often there is something actually wrong that's felt subjectively and semi-consciously deep down that bothers and depresses us. Sometimes we all need help.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

What's key is how we make sense of things; what meaning or perspective do we find in things?
