Sharing your thoughts and emotions may be difficult. This is why it is important to feel safe with your therapist. I offer a safe, non-judgemental, comfortable atmosphere. In my practice I see people who wonder why they experience anxiety, depression and low self-esteem. Most have experienced anxiety over small and large issues since childhood. For example, feeling fearful about attending school. They were afraid of not making friends or being accepted by classmates. Depression may have begun in childhood also. Did you have difficulty concentrating? How emotionally safe did you feel? Depression and anxiety may present differently in different times. For instance, childhood depression appears different than depression in a thirty or fifty year old. However, it is rooted in childhood.
Most would like to learn how to get rid of their anxiety and/or depression or at least lessen it. There are different ways to obtain similiar results, which is why education is a large component of therapy. Most behaviors that are learned can be unlearned.
