Sadness and grief


Sadness is the most painful of our feelings. It slows us down which encourages us to ask important questions about what we have lost.

This requires our strength and in return develops our strength. Our grief enriches our memories of our loss and helps us be clear of what we value in life.

Knowing the experience of sadness engenders empathy and so helps create the precious bonds we form when we reach out to others or are reached ourselves.

If you or a loved one is struggling with loss and grief and would like to talk, make an appointment by phone, text or email.

Self-esteem is the degree to which we feel confident, consider ourselves valuable, and respect ourselves, and this greatly affects our well-being.

Self-esteem exists on a continuum, from high to low.
Low self-esteem is associated with self-doubt, self-criticism, social isolation, suppressed anger and shame.

Low self-esteem is also a symptom of several mental health conditions, including anxiety and depression.

Relationships require work and are bound to face challenges large and small.

Simple, everyday stressors can strain an intimate relationship, and major sources of stress may threaten the stability of the relationship.
As long as each partner is willing to address the issue at hand and participate in developing a solution, most relationship problems are manageable, but when challenges are left unaddressed, tension mounts, poor habits develop, and the health and longevity of the relationship are in jeopardy.
