At any given moment, we have a remembered past, an experienced present and an imagined future. These three elements of existence are knit together by the story we tell ourselves about our lives – where we have come from, who we are now and where our lives are going. Illness and trauma can cause a dramatic interruption to the story we have for who we are. This can leave us feeling fragmented. Under these circumstances, therapy serves as a means for us to make sense of our lives again; to reimagine a way forwards.
“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”– Albert Camus
