The nature of our thoughts is often misunderstood; we think that whatever negative thought comes to our mind is influenced by things in our lives that aren’t going too well. Yes, this might even be the case in many situations since bad things happen all the times and we can’t help but feel resentment over them but if there’s anything that can keep you stuck in a cycle of negativity, then it’s your past experiences.
Our brains store all the things we experience in our lives and these experiences influence the way we feel about things. This influence can affect our thoughts, our actions and the way we perceive the world around us in general. Now, experience can be a great teacher but if you’ve experienced too much negativity and trauma in the past then you might be stuck in a cycle of negativity that clouds your judgement and always brings you down.
The mind and the body are interwoven and directly influence one another; when we feel sad, our body reacts through our heart rate, tension in the muscles and even our breathing pattern and then our body is sick, our mind becomes weak. InTouch & Motion therapists use the connection between your mind and your body to influence the way you feel things; if you’re depressed and just can’t see the Brightside of things, psychotherapy can help remove the dark cloud over your head.
Psychotherapy uses imagery, breathings exercises, guided motion and even sound to instil a sense of calmness and clarity into your mind, through your body. After a few sessions with InTouch & Motion therapists, you’ll feel your load lighten and realise that you’re finding a new perspective on things that you didn’t know you had in your before.
