I’m offering to give you the tools you need, to coach you – and to help you get forward in an obvious time of crisis.
This is likely what’s being treated most at the clinic.
The ambition here is to teach people to take care of themselves. It’s about learning how to preserve the energy you’ve got and how to recharge more than what’s being drained to be able to heal from the long term stress.
It’s done with a wide approach and we’ll try to affect every aspect of what bothers you. Actual physical, psychology and behaviors and your environment with the social aspects.
Physical parts include things such as actual pathology, anatomy and physiology, neurology, food, exercise and movement. This i one aspect of tending to pain, but not all of it.
The psychology covers behaviors, values, goals as well as bothersome symptoms such as fatigue and how to handle it, thoughts that bother, trouble sleeping, anxiety and depression. This part usually include learning to focus on what’s truly desired and needed. Questions like “What is stress and why do we experience it?” get covered and stress management is a part of the solution. CBT, ACT and problem solving are others.
Environmental factors cover important social aspects, work related things and everything that might be under the socioeconomic umbrella. Perhaps things need to change for you to get a decent enough and restful place. Do you like your job and your relationships? Is it possible to change – or change perspective?
Hippocrates is said to have said in the past:
“Before you heal someone, ask him if he’s willing to give up the things that make him sick.”
Which is completely necessary to ask here. We will do this in a pragmatic, hands-on and action based way combined with lifestyle changes. But here is the hard part: I cannot take care of you. So you must let me teach you to take care of yourself and give you the tools and the knowledge for you to just be fine without me. Which is what you want anyway, isn’t it? You shouldn’t want to be dependent on any sort of therapy over years unless it’s absolutely necessary.
My general rule of thumb is that nothing ever really fixes itself. We will pinpoint and we will change.
Change takes time, effort and plenty of the energy you’ve got – but it’s necessary, and it generally does turn out just great. You have to want this to do it. This will take time, but it is time for a change. You will spend time in new ways – but if you are a match, that’s worth all the work and hassle. Always.
We will pragmatically break down why this happened to you, how you got here and how to heal to lessen the chances of it ever happening again. Map it out and really take aim towards where you want to go, rather than helplessly flailing and being stuck in a rut where you are.
You can’t stay here. It’s wasting your life, and in some cases even risking it entirely.
Let me guide you and help you change in an effort to teach you how to rest, how to be right here right now, regain your energy and in the end regain your life.
We will for instance look at
– What to do with your actual physical pain to relieve it
– Tools to ease the ever present stress response
– How to increase your energy-level
– How to improve sleep
– How to change behavior to crush depressive symptoms and anxiety
– Implement physical activities. You need it
The goal is to look at most things a life can consist of to thereby be able to deduce the most bothersome stressors to be able to get rid of enough to get a decent balance and a level of stress that a human actually can manage. A really broad approach, since human lives are really complex. That approach seems to be quite crucial to get rid of enough of the ever present stress response and then get the desired outcome.
What treatment methods to use is individualized, depending on what the situation looks like. Problems must be solved by tending to that specific problem, not a general one. So we can’t simply “fix stress”. Since life is complex and they all tend to vary, they need individual solutions, even though we all do have needs in common.
I can only show you the way, try to teach you, hold your hand or point you in the right direction. I might have to be grim, bold and blunt at times to make it more of a nudge or in some cases a shove with words (if that’s even possible?) – we MUST get YOU there. Not me. Let’s get you the power to take control of your own life, get past this obstacle and get even better afterwards.
