Is counselling right for you?

Who is counselling for?

People sometimes think counselling is only for those who have experienced severe trauma. It’s not. My clients don’t always even know the cause of their discomfort. They just know that something isn’t quite right.  

Let’s take the example of someone who struggles to build healthy relationships. Perhaps they’ve experienced rejection or discrimination in the past that led to them becoming mistrustful. Their self-esteem has suffered and deep down, they may feel that they don’t deserve a loving relationship.

Through counselling, they can work through the cause of their difficulties – the rejection – to improve the symptoms – low self-esteem and mistrust. By doing so, they can break the pattern of unhealthy relationships.

The benefits of Counselling and Psychotherapy

Counselling and Psychotherapy help us to understand ourselves better. We learn more about why we feel and act the way we do. We learn coping mechanisms and start to move past the old traumas that are holding us back so that we can lead an authentic and fulfilling life.

This then brings many other benefits. For example, you could:

  • Feel less anxious
  • Increase your confidence
  • Build healthier relationships
  • Feel happier and more content
  • Sleep better
  • Tackle addictions

You may have a goal in mind. Or you might just want to breathe easier and feel mentally stronger. Whatever your reason for seeking counselling, the next step in your journey is to get in touch.
