Be The Parent That Yor Parents Were Not — Breaking The Cycle
Not everyone grew up in an ideal home with loving parents who put them first. Not everyone had a mum and dad who kissed them every night before bed, cooked them healthy meals, and strived to ensure they were happy.

It turns out, it's not uncommon for clients to ask their therapist if they can remain friends once their sessions come to an end. Throughout treatment, you've entrusted your therapist, sharing your rooted desires, fears, traumas, and expressing emotions in a way that you couldn't with other people you may be close to.
