Congratulations and welcome to The Relationship Centre.
I am Mary Joan Brinson, the Founder of The Relationship Centre. Together with our team, I want to let you know that we’re so glad you’re here.
By now, you’re probably wondering why we’ve included a domino in your welcome folder. The reason is because meeting a therapist for the first time is like tipping over the first domino in a long cascading set of dominoes.
Whether it feels easy or completely nerve-wracking — your first session may seem like a small and insignificant action. And yet it sets off a chain reaction that can have a profound and far reaching impact on your life.
Just as each domino is carefully balanced and connected to the next, different aspects of your life are connected and interdependent. By working with your therapist, you’re taking the first step towards understanding and addressing any challenges that may have been holding you back.
It gets even better, because…
Making one positive change can ripple outwards and touch every aspect of your life.
You need to know — It’s a journey that’s going to have its ups and downs. With the right guidance and support, you could be on a path towards a brighter, happier, healthier future.
Just as each domino can represent different aspects of your life, you can also think of each therapy session as a domino in the chain.
Each session builds upon the one that came before it. As you and your therapist better understand the challenges you’re facing, you can develop ways to overcome them.
Whether big or small, each breakthrough can also be thought of as another domino falling into place. As you make progress in therapy, you may find you feel more confident and capable of tackling the difficulties in your life.
And that is exactly what we want for you.
Just as each domino in a set has the potential to knock over the next one. Each breakthrough you have in therapy can lead to further progress and growth over time. As more and more dominoes fall into place, you may find you are better equipped to navigate the ups and downs of life with greater happiness and fulfillment.
That’s why we give you a single domino when you arrive for your first therapy session. It’s a symbolic way to acknowledge the start of your journey of growth and change.
Just as tipping the first domino marks the start of a chain reaction, your first therapy session marks the beginning of the therapeutic process.
This Domino is a totem, a totem for you that represents the importance of this first step you’re taking and the work that lies ahead. As you move farther down the road of the journey. This domino can serve as a visual reminder of the progress you’ve made and the progress yet to come.
It’s simple and we hope it’s a source of inspiration and motivation as you continue to work on your journey towards a happier and healthier life.
