We are now in a new season. After the summer heat most of us are looking forward to cooler weather and football. While the weather is cooler now isn't the time to let our relationships loose their passion. We start to let things collect dust and we usually want to remain inside watching television or doing things that require little or no energy. Relationships still require the same amount of attention although we may feel less energetic. Don't let your relationship become stagnant as things around you start to loose their luster.
Some people begin to experience depression as it gets cooler outside because they are spending more time in the house, and this can impact relationships. This doesn't have to be the case. Just as you are weatherproofing your house in prepartation for cooler weather you should also do a checkup of the relationships that you are in. If they need a tune up this is a great time to make that happen. Instead of sitting around the house wondering what to do to stay connected to others take the time to work on those issues that you muddled through over the summer. Why not include a task on your list that is focused on making the emotional changes that are necessary to build strong relationships or repair those that are important to you. This can include your relationship with your spouse, children, siblings and parents. Loosing weight can be compared to letting go of the hurts that we have caused others or that they have caused us. Isn't it time to stop making others or yourself pay. Let's jump into action and prepare for the journey.
As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.
