Our Life Now - Clarifying The Present Situation
From time to time, concerns in our life come to the foreground and need paying attention to. We may want to come to terms with an important issue or transition in our life, make specific decisions, work through uncomfortable feeIings or think things through. Relationship concerns may be a priority for us. We may be caught in the past, or hankering for our future, struggling to be in the moment, value the present or as if we are waiting for life to start.
The counselling & psychotherapy process involves taking time to outline our current situation, who we are now, where we would like to be - living to our full potential, and what stops us getting there, so far. Exploring whether our life now may also trigger memories from our past, some of which we had forgotten or believed we had dealt with. Yet in reality memories of events don't go away forever. They often resurface at a different layer or level, providing us with opportunities to revisit or heal (see also Changes & Transitions). Our past can be seen as a compass helping us to make sense and meaning of our present. Counselling and psychotherapy can help us get to know what we are doing and why we are doing it, so we can decide whether our future actions point towards being regressive or progressive. Some of us may want to find ways to be more alive and engaged in the moment - being in the present, without always putting things off to sometime in the future, which never seems to arrive, e.g. "when this happens, I will... when that happens, I will..." (see also Motivation & Will Power). Being more alive, feeling this in our body - through our quality of awareness, can be explored through the counselling process.
