Emotional injury plays a pivotal role in our maturational process. We have all felt that we are not good enough, that we should be ashamed of ourselves. These blows to our self-esteem occur regardless of socio-economic status, gender, race, culture, and sexual orientation. They are insidious, most commonly suffered during everyday verbal exchanges between children and adults, especially parents.
You will still experience emotional injuries if you are a child prodigy, or the best athlete in school, or voted the most popular. Emotional injury will occur even in a non-competitive environment such as not keeping score in sports, awarding all participants trophies., or schools that don;t offer grades.
These injuries impact us in the formation of who and what we are. They have a significant influence on how we feel about ourselves and how we function in our world. Psychotherapy can lead to increased self-awareness, and help you to channel this emotional burden into a source of strength and confidence.
Are your sexual experiences leaving you feeling empty, depressed or angry? In your attempt to be intimate, connect and feel wanted are you left feeling alone? Are you left with bad feelings about yourself? You know from your own experience that the passage of time or even the change in partners has not made this better. You wonder what to do?
Your sexual life can be deeply satisfying and rewarding. You do not have to live your life feeling so alone, empty and in pain. You are not the leaf being swept away in the current. Lets talk.
Psychotherapy is a hopeful step towards a more fulfilling life. Psychotherapy will help you resolve the inner struggles which cause the pain and despair.
