If you have started individual therapy in Orlando then first, congratulations on taking the investment and steps necessary to live your life to the fullest and embrace what you want in life. This can be a challenging step for some individuals, and you did it. Whether you're seeing a therapist twice weekly, weekly, biweekly, or even monthly taking this great step is allowing you to open the doors to new fulfillment for yourself!
Orlando therapists have noted that when working with their clients and individuals through men and women’s therapy in Orlando, there can be a day or a session where you may feel that you have done everything wrong and undone all the positive progress you have made with your therapist. If this is the case, then you need some strong cognitive reframing to change these distortions you are having about yourself because this is not the case.
Since your first day of therapy, you have continuously gone in an upward, progressive path that is going at its own speed. This incline is a representation of you and the progress you have made. It is very easy to allow your humanity to set in, become overwhelmed, and feel as though all the progress is gone and that you are declining. This is not the case! Instead, reframe it to where you have plateaued. You are learning and working in therapy to address the issues that may have caused this thought process to arise, and you can’t control when these issues or topics would come up.
Therefore, therapy exists to create the cognitive structures and tools to be utilized in these situations. Instead, you plateaued where progress was halted, and you are working towards finding a way to level up! That is all therapy in Orlando is-a leveling up to continue your progress and build the version of you that you are striving to be. Level up and win the game of life!
