Therapy

What Is Therapy?

When someone feels overwhelmed and cannot cope because they are in distress and cannot cope with overwhelming emotions and thoughts, it totally begins to affect their life with their family and friends. Nothing they say or do seems to help them get any better. In the end, people can end up isolating themselves from those that love and care about them. They end up having difficulties with their friends, family, and school. They often feel that very few people understand them.

 

A therapist is someone who is clinically trained to understand how someone is emotionally affected by everything that is going on around, and inside of them. Not only do they have an understanding of what is going on with you, but they can help you to reduce the stress responses so that you can adapt your emotional intelligence to manage the stress that you are going through and will have to deal with in life.

  • autoimmune system

All this causes poor self-healing, poor allostasis functioning which causes wear and tear on the wellbeing of the child. This will expose them to clinically diagnosed and undiagnosed conditions.
