Working Through Inner Conflicts with Talking Therapy

Lived experiences of inner conflict often generate emotional turmoil, characterised by intense feelings of doubt, anxiety, and tension. The contradictory thoughts and desires within us can create a sense of ambivalence, making it challenging to make decisions or take action.

While inner conflicts can often be distressing, they also present opportunities for personal growth and development. Through introspection, self-reflection, and seeking external support, individuals can work towards resolving these conflicts.

The lived experience of depression

Do the simplest of tasks feel impossible? Do you often feel overwhelmed, hopeless, and isolated? The lived experience of depression can vary from person to person, but there are some common themes that emerge. One of the most challenging aspects of depression is the feeling of isolation. People with depression often want to withdraw from the world around them and feel disconnected from their friends and family.

Feeling fine or feeling F.I.N.E?

So how are you and your loved ones doing?

A great place to start is with this very question. We are really used to asking this question, the problem is that it is often used as a greeting as opposed to an actual enquiry and then we are not always ready or equipped for the answer the question might bring. I’m sure we all have experience of answering or hearing ‘fine’ to this question where rather than the adverb meaning of ‘very well’ it might be more easily understood as an abbreviation such as Frustrated, Insecure, Neurotic, Exhausted.

Nature versus nurture? The ongoing search for understanding.

As psychotherapists our role is to facilitate someone getting to the most helpful understanding of their concerns so that they can make skilful decisions about how to live life. Therapy exists at the point current medical knowledge ends with a view to helping someone live better with “what is”. Sometimes that might mean learning to live with a medical diagnosis and at other times a difficulty for which there is currently no known medical understanding.

Friendship as a Theme in Therapy

Friendship so often appears as a theme in therapy. Sometimes people come for therapy talking about loneliness and isolation specifically in relation to friendship whilst at other times people are experiencing isolation and loneliness, struggling with a concern in life alone, not because of a lack of friendship but because they choose not to talk about worries with their friends. Meanwhile sometimes friends, determined not to lose a friendship come to therapy to try and work through a concern they cannot resolve alone.

Dissociation and Dissociative Disorders and Therapy

If you are struggling, does your experience include not being able to remember things, feeling uncertain, noticing that you have a reduced response to things that ought to feel more painful? Does your experience make sense through the words disconnected, removed or outside of yourself, others or the wider world? Do you think of yourself as though you are or could be a different person or people depending upon the situation or do you experience another presence or presense? Maybe you experience life as if through a haze or mist and or can find yourself somewhere not knowing why you are there or how you got there? And thinking back to before you had this experience were you stressed?

Agoraphobia - Counselling and Therapy

In therapy we seek to explore the way in which the sufferer experiences agoraphobia through a detailed exploration, then with a greater understanding comes the possibility for new ways of thinking about and approaching the situations which are connected with the symptoms. Whilst there are tools and techniques available it is often the case that a full understanding enables a sufferer to find their own way of making effective change.
