When might you benefit from psychological therapy?
There are a number of reasons that draw people to psychological therapy. These can include experiencing mental health concerns, including anxiety, depression, PTSD and many more. It can also be helpful when you feel a general feeling of being dissatisfied within your relationships; or a curiosity to learn more about yourself and the way you interact with the world around you. Life is a journey with an array of transitions and challenges, that can influence our mental health and our relationships with others and ourselves. Too often the struggles of everyday life are accompanied by a sense of shame, which can often prevent us from asking for support. Our emotional world can act as a warning, a signal that our current way of being is not allowing us to live the life that we want for ourselves or to meet our potential.
The therapeutic relationship is a space to better understand your current difficulties and suffering. It is a safe and compassionate space to explore the origins of that suffering, and to reconnect to your many strengths and resources. In addition, to having a consistent and non judgmental person to be alongside you as you navigate the obstacles that get in the way of living you leading the life you want or making the changes that serve you.
The therapy process encourages us to see ourselves as an active participant in our lives. It empowers us to recognise that we have the potential to create change, to foster a more positive and compassionate narrative about our experiences and strive for healthy meaningful life.
Thanks for all your incredible insights, compassion and advice. You have really changed our lives for the better. I have lots of positive memories of my pregnancy and the first year of my sons life, I wouldn’t have had without you. I can’t thank you enough.
