Welcome to Meghan Farr Therapy Services!
It takes an incredible amount of bravery to deep dive into one’s self. It can feel like stomach-flipping, roller-coaster terror, at times.
I’m not going to sugar coat this process: it’s going to take time, effort and financial commitment to do the work. Shining a flashlight in dark places comes with some jump scares. That’s why it’s important to go on this journey with a therapist and not alone.
It will be uncomfortable and awkward at times, but that’s when we’ll learn the most. It can be dynamic and fun too. I couldn’t do therapy if we didn’t get to use a defense mechanism like humor and redirect the conversation with laughter once in a while!
My job is to steer us back when we veer away from the really hard things. We’ll always go at your pace. You’re the pace car in this and that’s a terrible analogy because this kind of therapy is most definitely NOT a race! In fact, it’s quite the opposite.
When we have debilitating anxiety, panic attacks, obsessive behaviors or thoughts, depression or even just really difficult moments in our relationships it’s because of build-up that’s been accumulating for years; if not decades. It’s like our arteries – we have to stop the plaque from blocking blood flow to all the major organs. We know what happens if the build up is too great.
Same with un-metabolised emotions, trauma, relationship issues and symptoms of depression and anxiety – the layers of build up eventually cause major blockages in terms of the health and well-being of ourselves and our relationships. That’s why true healing isn’t a quick-fix. It takes time to truly understand ourselves and how we got here.
