OBSTACLES

We Understand Challenging Perspectives

Changing perspective is a healthy practice if we want to be empathetic, rational, and compassionate. However, changing perspective is not just seeing things from the view of another; it's also about gaining perspective. By stepping outside of our own perspective, it becomes possible to reframe our interaction with others.

Perspective is everything when you are experiencing the challenges of life.

Anxiety

It appears in many forms. Fear of spiders, heights, or social situations? Excessive worry about grades? Ruminating thoughts about bad things happening? Engaging in maladaptive behaviors with the hope of preventing unwanted thoughts? Dealing with conflict at work or in your relationships? These are just a few of the experiences people have with anxiety. Westport Perspective can help the way you look at these fears and take away the power they have in holding you back.

Depression

There are many symptoms of depressed mood.

Westport Perspective encourages you to fight the negative thoughts with more realistic, balanced thoughts and gives you clear tools to change your response to the depressed mood and its symptoms.

General Feeling of Low Self-Worth

From the time we are very young, we receive messages from our environment. We are often both criticized and validated. This happens both overtly and subtly. Unfortunately, we hear and hold onto the negative messages more strongly than the positive ones.
