Sometimes things happen in life that makes us feel vulnerable and unable to cope. Counselling can help you change the way you feel by exploring new coping strategies.
There are times in life when we feel stuck and can benefit from the support of a trained professional who can listen to us without judgment. Someone who can help us make sense of our thoughts, talk through feelings in order to bring about desired change.
The relationship between therapist and client is an important factor in gaining good results. A relationship built on trust will enable you to feel safe to explore your issues fully.
People come to counselling for any number of reasons. They may be prompted by a significant life event such as bereavement, illness or a relationship breakdown, or they may wish to identify and break unhealthy patterns of behaviour. Others won’t have a specific reason but will be experiencing a general sense of unhappiness or anxiety and will use therapy as a way to make sense of these feelings. There is no right or wrong reason to come for counselling and whatever your motivation, therapy can be an empowering process which helps you take control of your life, resolve your difficulties and increase your sense of wellbeing.
