Counselling for Identity & Existential Issues : Empathic Counselling

“Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves” Henry David Thoreau

Are you feeling lost? Every human at one point or another feels lost. Feeling lost can be due to a number of different things. It could be due to a traumatic experience, the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship or the end of a job. Maybe you are questioning your gender or sexual identity? Or perhaps you are feeling unsure of what career to pursue, whether or not to get married or have children, whether to take that new job or stay in your current role, and so on! Feeling lost can also just suddenly hit us out of the blue! We may suddenly lose our motivation and wonder what we are doing in life and what our life’s purpose really is.

Some other reasons that you may feel lost in life are:

  • You’re feeling burnt out
  • You compare yourself to others
  • You have lost connection to yourself
  • You feel that you’re living someone else’s life
  • You keep dwelling on the past
  • You don’t know your worth
  • You’re afraid to step out of your comfort zone
  • You’re questioning your gender or sexual identity

Although feeling lost is horrible, it can actually be the first step in creating a more fulfilling life and be the first step in reconnecting with yourself.
