Therapy Basics        Why Consult Kay        Specializations        Eldering

Therapy, or psychotherapy, is about first understanding and then overcoming the “road bumps” in your life. It is where you begin the process of addressing specific conerns, issues, and symptoms that are expressed through reflex behaviors, beliefs, feelings, and responses. From this jumping off point, you begin a journey of self–growth, of becoming more aware of yourself and your relationships. With the aid and guidance of a trained therapist, you can expect to:

  • •   Reduce your suffering caused by depression, anxiety, trauma, or relationships
  • •   Deeply listen to, learn from, and work with your suffering to become a whole,
           happy person
  • •   Become more conscious about yourself, your world, and the people around you
  • •   Build self–esteem and free yourself from the limitations of what others think
  • •   Reconnect with and more freely express joy, compassion, peace, spirituality,
           and love

Are you searching for a new approach to aging? Does your life feel incomplete in some way? Is there something you regret not having done? These are some of the questions of Eldering, a developing field that focuses on “conscious aging.” Our society is currently conditioned to observe a youth–centric/age–phobic paradigm where we are expected to accept diminishing vitality and mental acuity. But one’s later years need not play out this way. We can, instead, actively cultivate an expanded awareness in our golden years, filled with meaning, purpose, future potential, and personal development. If this is a topic that resonates with you, Kay Prothro can help you:

  • •   Discover and understand your journey into elderhood
  • •   Redefine “retirement” as being physically active and engaged
  • •   Expand your potential with meaningful work and intellectual stimulation
  • •   Become a mentor, sharing your “elder widsom” with family and community
  • •   Create new social structures that respect and value the legacy of our elders
  • •   Learn how to approach death as a conscious form of spiritual awakening
