With therapy, you can release:
Feeling like you cant breathe or there is an elephant on your chest
Feeling caught in the cycle of overwhelm, then procrastination, followed by a breakdown—a pattern you’re exhausted from but can’t seem to escape.
Thoughts racing around your head like a high-speed train, impossible to slow down or get a grip on
Nights spent tossing and turning, chasing sleep that seems just out of reach.
Feeling restless or on edge, as if you’re a tightly coiled spring ready to snap at the slightest touch.
How long has it been since you woke up feeling refreshed and present?
