Tools to help you find more meaning and purpose
Life is often hard, it is complex and involves suffering. Often the messages we get from family, friends and community are not always helpful, particularly when we believe we just need to deal with problems alone. Seeking support through therapy is a positive step we can make for our own lives, and actively benefit those we love.
In Positive Health is influenced by the field of Positive Psychology. Although this field began mid 20th century with Humanistic Psychology, in the first two decades of the 21st century the field has shown more focus and cohesion.
Individual therapy is about recognising it is ok to seek support, that others will help us. With this as a starting point we can deal with particular issues, begin understanding our long term patterns and then make workable, helpful change to take us from surviving to thriving.
