How many times have we all thought, at some point in our lives that talking to friends and family is not enough. How many times have we all thought how great it would be to be able to talk to someone freely, without worrying about saying the wrong thing or upsetting anyone. To be able to talk to someone in confidence, who listens without judging, criticising or making us feel guilty.
We would like to take that first step, but we do not contact someone because we think that we have failed somewhere. We also worry about what people will think if we tell them that we are seeing a counsellor.
The reality is that at some point in our lives we can all benefit from counselling or psychotherapy, irrespective of whether the issue is an unresolved one from the past, a present issue we are struggling with, or even when we do not know what the issue is, but we know that something is not right.
Counselling and psychotherapy helps us to understand our behaviours, equips us with life skills that allow us to cope and deal with situations, increases self-awareness, enriches life and helps overcome the challenges of life.
We will be able to approach the future with greater confidence, less stress, guilt and anxiety. We will be able to start building the foundations for a much brighter future. With all this in mind, counselling is a very positive step to take.
Counselling and psychotherapy provides a confidential, non-judgemental setting where we are able to talk freely while receiving emotional support, gaining new perspectives of life and getting help with the issue/s at hand.
