In order to provide the fastest relief possible, GETME takes a focused approach to your treatment. This means that at the beginning of your therapy as a whole — and at the start of each new session — you’ll collaborate with your therapist on a specific target for exploration and change. Common things we could focus on include:

  • Relationship Difficulties
  • Anxiety & Fears
  • Depression, Sadness & Grief
  • Anger & Irritability
  • Self-Criticism, Self-Worth & Shame
  • Apathy & Lack of Interest/Excitement
  • Addictions & Problematic Behaviors
  • Assertiveness & Boundaries
  • Unfinished Business
  • Life Transitions
  • Existential Concerns (Death/Freedom & Responsibility/Isolation/Life Meaning)

Though the focus may shift somewhat during the course of treatment, the shift is always in the direction of greater specificity and more usefulness. By using the “Pain Compass” — focusing gently but firmly on what hurts — we move steadily into that place inside where all of the healing occurs.
