Progress and Change

 
Change and Progress


'The price of doing the same old thing is far higher than the price of change''.

Do we really want to change our thoughts, behaviours, actions, feelings, habits, way of life? Do we feel ready for change and progress?
 
Change is a big deal and important when seeking help, support, psychotherapy or counselling.

Sometime we really want things to change, but don't know how this can be possible. We may also feel that we are faced with barriers, obstacles or limitations. 
 
Do you want to change but feel there are obstacles? How can we overcome these? What support can we get to help with this? What are the reasons for wanting to change? How can we bring about change?

Someone asked us this week what 'recovery' was. Recovery involves change and making progress, but it looks different to everyone. It's a tricky question to answer because what 'recovery' means to one person might mean something else to another. And, of course, what recovery means to us can change over time too as things change and we progress and move forward.
 
Making progress and change are like the circles in the poster below. Recovery, change and progress look like all of the circles in the poster below.
 
You go at your pace and determine change, progress and 'recovery' in terms of where you are just now. It's got to be realistic and achievable after all. 
 
If you are looking for some support with change, feel free to get in touch. Our contact details are in the comments below.
 
Best wishes,
