Psychotherapy aims to help individuals understand and create meaning from emotional and psychology difficulties they are experiencing. It can help with big or small issues and is ultimately about increasing your wellbeing.
Many people are frightened or unsure of therapy as it makes them feel weak, vulnerable, or that they are the only one not coping. However, feeling weak is actually a strength you just don’t know it yet.
There are many reasons to come to therapy, but at times there may not be a reason. This is absolutely normal because although you may not feel you have a reason, your body or your life might be telling you otherwise. Many of us experience unwanted behaviours or illnesses which may be related to emotional issues that we are unaware of.
The process of therapy often involves putting symptoms into perspective and approaching problems from new angles. Sometimes this involves looking back, and putting present symptoms into a context of past experiences and events.
Therapy offers a space to explore unhelpful patterns. The process is a gentle one and is based on a person-centred integrative approach. There is no judgement, only understanding. The power from healing comes from within as you already have the answers. You just need to find them.
