Feeling Connected Again Is Possible
I don’t know exactly what you are going through, but if you are at the point of considering therapy, you are likely in a great deal of pain. Unfulfilled with your relationships, feeling stuck or disconnected.
Perhaps these feelings are somewhat recent. You’ve been finding it harder than usual to cope with stressful situations. Your relationships don’t go as smoothly as before. The small frictions and silences have become hard to ignore.
Or perhaps you have been feeling this way for a long time. You have tried to cope on your own, but you haven’t experienced the long lasting changes you seek. Being stuck takes a toll and you start to feel tired and hopeless.
These are the kinds of challenges we can address in therapy.
When people come in for their first session, it is not uncommon for them to say “I don’t know where to start”. They feel frustrated, overwhelmed with the smallest decisions. They know that something needs to change but it is not clear what it is. They want things to change for the better, but it is hard to know how to bring this about. Insecurity, doubt and sadness can paralyse us and keep us re-living negative patterns over and over.
A Guide Comes In Handy
A good therapist can help you make sense of what you are feeling. Therapy is a space where you can talk about your worries, hurts and frustrations without the fear that you will be judged or that you’ll be silenced because your pain is “too much”.
A good therapist can hold the space and support you to find the best solution to start finding joy your life and relationships.
It’s time to start walking through life with a more positive outlook. A therapeutic relationship can help you heal from past hurts and allow you to feel more ease, peace and connection.

“I was struggling within my workplace, often questioning my self and my decisions, Kristina assisted me to make sense of my situation. She assisted me to work on my thought and negative view of myself using EMDR therapy. She also assisted me to understand the reason why I was so impacted by other people’s responses, especially when my work was challenged. Kristina was easy to talk to, she has a soft quiet manner. She assisted me to uncover parts of myself that I was not aware of, supporting me through the process and providing me with strategies to recover. I would highly recommend Kristina; she has assisted me to lift a huge mental weight off myself.”

Hello, I am Kristina
Like many of the people I have worked with, you might be wondering if what you are feeling is normal, and whether there is a way out of this. I want to let you know that it is completely normal for life’s stresses and hurts to leave us feeling lost.
If you are considering therapy, you are likely holding on to the hope that things can change for the better. I am here to tell you that you were right to hold on to this hope. The work I do with people that seek my help leads to greater clarity, certainty, and ultimately a long lasting change for the better.
Past experiences where we felt rejected, rebuffed or unsafe affect our emotions and our outlook more than you might think. Those unresolved hurts are brought into our relationships and they affect our day to day decisions.
Therapists are trained to help you identify and process these unresolved wounds so you can live a life of your own choosing, rather than allowing yourself to be dictated by these hurts.
If you feel like you need support, please don’t wait any longer. Reach out so you can begin healing.
