Why choose therapy?
Life can be very challenging at times leaving us feeling distressed and alone and not knowing which way to turn. You may feel stuck, anxious or just flat without knowing why. Or there may be something more specific that is causing you distress - a relationship for example or an issue at work, school or college. You may have experienced a significant loss or traumatic event.
Over a prolonged period of time, these feelings can profoundly affect not only our enjoyment of daily life but also our levels of self esteem, confidence and well-being. Furthermore, with our nervous systems now being stretched and stressed by the restrictions and pressures of living with Covid, you may be feeling increasingly isolated, trapped and alone.
Therapy is an invitation to explore and find a way through these difficult periods within a safe, non judgemental and confidential space. Being listened to and heard creates the opportunity to better understand and trust ourselves, enabling us to make more balanced and constructive choices as a result.
For some, counselling will be enough to work through a specific issue or feeling. However, you may want to take a more psychotherapeutic approach to yourself, looking more deeply at your life experiences over a longer period of time.
Whatever brings you to therapy, sharing your personal thoughts and feelings requires a safe and trusting relationship so it is important to take some time to find a therapist who feels right for you and your individual challenges.
