Support for you
Sometimes life can feel really difficult and without realizing it, you can become stuck, struggling to find a way forward, losing sight of the light at the end of the tunnel. This does not mean that there's something 'wrong' with you. It simply means that circumstances or situations have taken you to the outside of your usual comfort zone and your usual functioning. The symptoms of this can include loss of sleep, anxiety, depression and can change behaviours towards friends and loved ones. You might begin to withdraw from social activities which you once enjoyed. You might become irritable or snappy with loved ones. Sometimes you can reach for that extra glass of wine to help get to sleep. These are all behaviours and symptoms associated with being out of our comfort zone. Underlying these behaviours and symptoms might be something more fundamental, like feelings of low self worth, repeating negative relationship patterns or unprocessed historical trauma. At these times, reaching out for support can be the hardest thing, and the thing we are most resistent to. Many people consider reaching for support as a sign of weakness or not coping. This is understandable in a society which values independence and strength in individuals over showing vulnerablity and relationship. And yet reaching for support from a caring and qualified therapist can create something new in your life. Whether it's talking therapies, creative therapies or body based therapies, the therapeutic space is one where you will not be judged or criticized. In this safe, containing and confidential environment, within a clear and trusting relationship, you will be enabled to process the feelings of stuckness or overwhelm, re-find what you feel is important to you and reconnect with yourself. Your therapist has no other agenda in your life, other than to walk alongside you until the light at the end of your tunnel begins to re-emerge.
At BodhiSpace, our therapy professionals offer Counselling, Psychotherapy, Arts Therapies and Somatic Therapies. We work with individuals, couples and families. We welcome people from all walks of life and with all identities. We actively work to eliminate discrimination on any grounds such as race, class, sexuality, gender, age, ability, neurotypicality, language and wealth. Therefore we strive to offer therapists with diverse identities and include therapists working at a sliding scale of fees or at low cost. Each therapist has their own style, quality and professional expertise. One size doesn't fit all, and with this in mind, we will collaborate with you to carefully assess what your needs are, which treatment and which therapist will best suit your needs. We believe that you are the expert in yourself therefore whatever you decide will always be your choice. Our building in Olney is not wheelchair accessible, therefore if this is something you would wish to access, please contact us and we will strive to find an alternative venue for you.
