If you’re experiencing a sense of stuck-ness in one or multiple aspects of your life, counselling or therapy can help. What does stuck-ness look like? It can wear many faces. It can present as higher than normal levels of anxiety or stress. It can look like depression, lack of motivation, or like you’ve hit a wall. It can involve recurring, unhelpful patterns in your relationships, both in your primary relationship or with others close to you. You may not even be able to identify what it is that feels stuck or “off”—you may just know that you want more for yourself, your relationships and your life.
When we are feeling the impulse to evolve and shift out of feeling stuck in life, it is natural to feel a contraction at the same time—there is usually a part of us that is comfortable with our old way of being, even if it comes at a cost. Eventually though, the desire to find a better way grows stronger than the fear of change.
