The pain of a losing a loved one or of fighting with a family member is very intense. Even if you don’t show it outwardly, painful feelings can color your whole day, week, month or year, sapping your ability to enjoy life, take care of yourself, be productive and make good decisions. There are many tools that therapy can offer to help you with your feelings. For instance, changing the way you think about events or people’s intentions can make a big difference in the way you feel about them. Just getting some feelings off your chest with a compassionate person can be a great relief. Learning to see your contribution to a problem and to identify new options can light the path to greater success. You can get coaching to stop destructive behaviors, or to learn new healthy behaviors. You may simply need a gentle reminder to take better care of yourself. I have even been asked for a ‘kick in the pants’ to help people do what they know they should! Whatever kind of help you need, two heads are almost always better than one. Emotional Intelligence, peacefulness, happiness are skill sets. We can help you learn to be happier, if you are willing to do the work.
