Psychotherapy is a process that helps integrate our life experiences into a sense of meaning. It is a process of obtaining new and efficient life skills and putting them into practice. Therapy can help you become aware of your blind spots and end the cycle of self-defeating thoughts and fears causing you depression and anxiety. Therapy is not about changing other people, but about taking responsibility for any relationship you are in (including your relationship to yourself) . Holding on to bad memories or habits is like sitting on a boat tied to the dock, waiting for it to take you to the big sea. Therapy is a process of uncovering your falls self and getting rid of maladaptive patterns while giving rise to your genuine, authentic, and resourceful self.
