Have you done therapy before? Did you find it boring, and a waste of time? Some people have said this to me in the past. But therapy can be a bit like yoga, maybe you haven’t found the right kind of therapy or the right person to accompany you back to your own resilience? I still haven’t found the right kind of yoga, maybe I never will, or maybe I’ll find something else. My point being, there is no right or wrong therapy just the right way for you.
Why do I like resilience so much? Because there is something so honest and intrinsic about it. It just makes sense. People talk about resilience in every culture and every language. As I said many of your favourite films and songs are probably about resilience. Everybody is resilient, its just that sometimes we don’t feel it, or sometimes we just need a little bit of time to get it back! You seem to have fallen into a hole that you can’t climb out of, but you still want to be able to reach up and find a helping hand to pull you out.
The good news is that resilience can be rediscovered and constructed. Resilient people learn to live for a while in the darkness, while developing the necessary coping skills to adapt to their circumstances and find a “new normal”. They learn to be self compassionate, kind and non- judgmental with themselves as they go through their crisis. Some will even find a deeper purpose and meaning in life.
Resilience and Coaching
Coaching is everywhere these days! But is doesn’t have to be a pursuit of excellence nor a complicated psychological workout session, much better a pursuit of resilience and understanding what type of resilience you need to work on. Resilience amongst many things, is how you manage stress, so it focuses on practical and protective factors rather than what causes it.
My coaching sessions help you build resilience in an international and creative environment in your career and also in your life including parenting and caring for other family members. A lot of the unpaid work we do can be the most challenging and how we balance our lives can help relieve a lot of stress and allow us to enjoy moments.
