Understanding symptoms, treating the cause.
Symptoms may be a sign that your emotional defenses, or coping strategies are no longer working. Symptoms may be triggered by a personal crisis, a traumatic event, or may have a more pervasive component. Symptoms can range from:
body image problems
feeling stuck in life
life transition difficulties
When the cause is not treated.
When the cause of the symptoms is not examined and not worked through, patients may continue to suffer with the reoccurrence of symptoms, and may experience:
difficulty developing stable relationships or;
difficulty being proud of his/her own identity and unique aptitudes or;
difficulty tolerating frustration and disappointment in relationships or;
difficulty maintaining a stable sense of worth, and to function independently.
