The unconscious is the ever present force in our daily actions. Unless we acknowledge this, our actions will not be framed by the present, but by the past – and we won’t know it. Psychotherapy aims to restore a good working relationship with our unconscious minds.
At best, life finds us curious and ready: we can enjoy its upsides, tolerate its inevitable snags and make sense of its ebb and flow. But it can also happen that we feel powerless to shift some negative emotional states, and experience enduring frustration as they become entrenched and turn into chronic conditions of anxiety or depression. To work through these states, it will be beneficial to look into greater depth at one’s thoughts and feelings with the assistance of a professional.
For those who undertake it, psychotherapy will be an opportunity to bring into light and challenge the fundamentals of their life and personhood with the attentive help of a qualified and experienced practitioner.
