Gavin believes that within all of us lies the resources to live the life that we were born capable of living. As adults, we often find that we have lost the person that we were created to be.
We might experience that sense of loss in our relationships, our jobs or more generally in life. We might feel anxious or depressed. We might find our relationships and sex lives have become more challenging and less fulfilling. Our behaviours might have become addictive. We might experience an overall absence of personal happiness and fulfilment.
Alternatively we may feel that it is difficult to cope with our lives but don’t necessarily know why. We might find ourselves repeating destructive patterns or have come to recognise that many of our thoughts, feelings and behaviours are painful or confusing. It can be difficult to talk to family or friends about what is troubling us. We might feel embarrassed or experience shame. There may be things that we don’t want to admit or face even to ourselves. These are some of the times when seeking help from a trained professional can make a difference.
It can be helpful to talk with an expert in a supportive and non-judgmental environment in order to gain a better understanding of your situation and work towards finding some healthy solutions.
People seek support for many different reasons, including:
• Sexually compulsive behaviours
• Loss and bereavement
• Family and Relationship difficulties
• Difficulties in relation to sexuality and sexual identity
• Workplace issues
• Identity issues
• Low self-esteem and self-worth
