You have a fundamental right to feel good about yourself, to feel that you are worth it, to know that you are okay! 

Societal expectations impose extreme demands on us - we almost have to become super-humans to feel that we belong. To meet these demands many of us have come to believe that we don't have the right to the most basic experiences of being human, such as the ability to feel our emotions in a full and satisfying way, or the right to make mistakes. We then may feel guilty, ashamed, anxious, depressed, fearful, unworthy, or painfully inadequate.

Therapy helps you get back in touch with your true identity.  It supports you in owning your wants and needs, communicating them effectively, and being able to identify, decide and pursue what you really want to experience in life.
