Therapy creates a safe place to explore your difficulties, your innermost feelings, and to help unravel the thoughts that have led you to where you are today. It is a special time of self-reflection which leads to greater self-awareness and insight.
Individual counselling sessions, can help you when you are feeling stuck, overwhelmed, anxious or depressed. Understanding what is causing you difficulty, or getting in the way of your fulfilment in life, is an important step towards dealing with it.
It is sometimes surprising how much of a difference it can make to talk to a therapist, as opposed to a friend or family member. This is not only because counselling is completely confidential and non judgmental, it is because the relationship between the therapist and the client is unique, and promotes growth and healing.
I believe that the time and energy you invest in therapy is invaluable. Not only can it help you through a difficult period, it can enrich the quality of the rest of your life.
