Why go for counselling?
Taking that step to talk to a Counsellor takes courage and is most certainly not a weakness. The Counselling process, although challenging at times can be freeing, help reduce distress and can sometimes be life changing.
You might not have anyone to turn to, or for lots of reasons it might not be possible to confide in those people closest to you. Often because of past experiences, the idea of talking to someone about how we feel or something that is troubling us can be daunting. If you have never had the experience of speaking to someone who ‘really’ doesn’t judge or criticise you, then I encourage you to try Counselling.
I offer Person-Centred Therapy (PCT) and part of my approach is about understanding your world from your point of view and creating a therapeutic space where you feel safe enough to share and work through the troubles you face. Then together, if you wish, we can explore what you’d like to change, at your own pace and find a way forward.
People come for counselling for all sorts of reasons. It might be that right now you are feeling anxious, sad, angry or confused; experiencing conflict in your relationships; troubled by earlier life events, loss or trauma; under stress at work or in other areas of your life; perhaps you have encountered discrimination or bullying; perhaps you are faced with an important life decision and feeling ‘trapped’ or ‘stuck’.
Below are some more examples of what might lead a person to access Counselling…
– Existential issues
– Low self esteem
– Loss and bereavement
– Covid distress
– Traumatic experiences
– Gender & sexuality
– Relationship difficulties
– Divorce and separation
– Difficulties at work
