People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons. Ales Zivkovic points out that in the therapy room it’s often discovered that the pain and bad feelings that a person comes to therapy to talk about are actually a part of their perception of how they survive and live in the world.

Fear of change is a common reason that holds people back in psychotherapy. As the bad feelings are talked about and the source of pain is uncovered it can be challenging for a person to accept themselves as they are; that there is room for improvement!

So, being afraid of change should be treated as one of the milestones in therapy.
