Counselling can be helpful in providing an environment where stories can be explored, considered, explained, rewritten perhaps. Counselling and psychotherapy are both ‘talking cures’. They are a method of developing improved emotional and psychological well-being through the process of therapeutic conversation with a trained therapist.
During each session you will be invited to talk about all and any aspects of yourself. This might include your past experiences, your current circumstances and relationships, and the hopes you have for the future. The relationship which develops during sessions also becomes an important part of the work we do. From time to time you may be invited to do specific tasks to help our shared understanding of your situation, for example to work with photographs or journals.
No matter who you are, and where you are in your life, counselling can help you. The evidence comes from scientific and anecdotal sources alike and it is a unique way of working through difficulties. Unlike many other treatments counselling will truly help you understand yourself and how to develop a better you.
