Don’t you hate it when you feel like you should be happy, and you are not? Sometimes the answer is what we are focusing on –
If we focus on the past, we have no way of changing that, so this can sometimes lead to regret. Depression is often linked to a disproportionate focusing on the past
If we focus on the future, we don’t yet know what will come, so this could make us fearful. This is often the problem when we are anxious
Instead, the only way we can change things is by focusing on the present. What can we do now, what can we change?
It is hard, though. We often get dragged into the past or future. That is why therapy can help. With a trained professional, you can try and focus on what is in the present, what is coming up for you right now. As you become more aware of your thoughts and feelings, you can explore these with your therapists. They might hold the key to a great number of locked doors. A therapist can support you as you unlock and walk through those doors, and discover aspects of yourself that can transform your life.

It can be hard to book that first consultation. So here is a video showing you what might happen in a therapy session. The therapist in this video is Carl Rogers, the Founder of Person-Centered therapy.
