Stress is unavoidable in a full and meaningful life, but how we experience it makes all the difference.Therapy can help. It might be about helping you to get clear about what’s causing the stress for you, and to work through and shift the underlying factors. It's helpful to identify your strengths and core values – and learn how to draw on these to help you feel empowered rather than ovewhelmed.
In therapy I support clients in developing self compassion. Self compassion is different to self esteem. Kristen Neff, the leading researcher in this area, explains that self-compassion has three components. self-kindenss, common humanity and mindfulness. We are all gloriously imperfect human beings and self compassion helps us to accept our own and others imperfections.
