There are times in all of our lives when we can feel overwhelmed and unsure of how to move forward. Often it is because we feel stuck, lost or unhappy that we start thinking about coming to therapy in the first place.
Therapy, or counselling, provides a place where we can truly come to know and accept ourselves. Sometimes building a real awareness of how our personality emerged the way that it did leaves us wiser about the relationship patterns we have and the ways we handle sadness, anxiety, closeness or loss.
Because it can often seem impossible to talk about the things that trouble us with those that are close to us, counsellors and psychotherapists are sources of independent help we can turn to when dealing with such problems. They are skilled listeners and thinkers who commit to regular meetings with their clients, offering them the chance to reflect on their lives in careful detail.
