People often come to therapy when going through a crisis and struggling with life. A realisation that life changes need to be made, or specific problems such as relationship difficulties or bereavement, can be a prompt to seeking help and support.
A safe and confidential space is provided by the therapist enabling an exploration of those aspects of ourselves that can be difficult not only to understand but to access.
Therapy is for everyone who seeks greater self-awareness, a better understanding of themselves and their relationships with others.
By looking more closely at our emotions and experiences we are better able to understand the patterns in our lives. It is possible to gain an insight into our behaviour, what motivates us and, importantly, to become more aware of our unconscious thoughts and feelings.
Therapy can be challenging, to look at ourselves with clear eyes is not always comfortable. However, working together with a qualified therapist in a confidential and safe way can be a valuable and life changing experience.
