Clinical psychologist Steven Mahan says it’s common for people to think it’s difficult to change things that feel comforting in the moment, however, therapy can direct them towards a more fulfilling life. https://www.thechelseapsychologyclinic.com Chelsea Psychology Clinic are a group of London psychologists and psychiatrists offering private psychological therapy and psychiatry treatment from their premises across central London and Chelsea. The private therapy sessions cover the following areas: – Acceptance & Commitment Therapy – Cognitive Analytic Therapy – Cognitive-behavioural Therapy – Couples Therapy – Dialectical-behaviour Therapy – Mentalisation Based Treatment – Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy – Schema Therapy
Often change is quite scary, and sometimes we are doing certain behaviours such as shutting ourselves away or using food as a way of coping for specific reasons as a way of trying to better our lives because in that particular moment it might feel better. So that can be difficult to challenge. It can be difficult to change things that, often in the moment, feel comforting. However, with therapy, it can often be about trying to explore, “What do I want to do with my life? With these coping mechanisms I currently have, and is it stopping me from living the way I want to live?” So often working with a therapist can mean that you get more out of your life or that you learn to relate to your emotions in a different way so that you feel that you are engaging more, being a better loved one or a better employee to try and get a more meaningful and fulfilled life.
