Offering psychotherapy in London, I observe the processes of decay, loss, or grieving almost every day. Accompanying clients through the after-loss pain has taught me that grief doesn’t happen in a vacuum. This is the price we pay for love. Loss, destruction, decay, or degradation are universal processes. They destroy the status quo and entirely change the life we’ve known so far.
Therapy enhances self-confidence and self-acceptance, which is essential to deal with feelings of shame. Experiences of discrimination and stigma underlies the pain of loneliness and leads to stress, anxiety, and depression. There is an increasing demand to cope with emotional problems as well as quick and easy access to professional help is much needed.
