I feel incredibly blessed to be able to take long walks through beautiful countryside and really give myself time and space to focus on what matters.
I was out in the woods today, contemplating my amazing clients and what motivates people to work with me 1:1 or through an Interiors Therapy coaching programme.
The two photos above show the juxtaposition between the situation the majority of clients are in at the point they call me in – when something in their current situation means they are stagnating – at work, in relationships, in their career.
The first picture is initially attractive, but look more closely and the ground is covered in brambles, ivy, hidden roots and thorns to trip you, tear your clothes and scratch you. Tree trunks and dead wood block your way and there’s no easy access to your destination.
But for some people, that’s just fine. They’ve reached a point in their career, relationship or life where they are stagnating but can’t imagine things being any better. They simply accept that this as their lot in life and it’s too much effort to change things – or perhaps change terrifies them. They recognize things are probably harder than they need to be, with tension and stress at work and apathy, loneliness or family challenges at home, but despite knowing that, they prefer to stay trapped in their small patch of woodland because they don’t have the tools to clear a way through.
Most of my clients describe feelings of this nature when they contact me. The career has stalled, relationships are on the rocks, something is always going wrong…
When they invest in Interiors Therapy to revitalise their home, it’s the equivalent of the second picture. The process clears away the metaphorical brambles, dead wood and branches blocking or diverting their path. They can see clearly, and although there are trees ahead, my clients have options for the way forward and can choose the route to take unhindered, without emotional or physical baggage. They are in control of where they want to go and how to get there.
So if you’re feeling blocked, trapped in your current situation or as if something always gets between you and what you want in your life, invest in Interiors Therapy. I’m not going to lie to you, it’s going to be emotional, it’s going to be messy and it’s going to be physically exhausting – but when the thorns and dead wood are removed from your life, it’s liberating and you can’t help but move forward.
