We live in a complex and often challenging world, in which we encounter many different types of experiences that can be difficult for us to deal with. The majority of the time we can get on with life, but sometimes we can’t. Often we can find support with friends or family, but there are times we can’t and sometimes, even with their support, we can feel isolated and alone.
What is Therapy?
Therapists should offer clients a safe, confidential place, where you can talk about yourself and your life.
Therapy will also offer you an opportunity to think
and talk about yourself and your concerns in a way that you often can’t do with family and friends.
It also offers a place and time which is just for you to talk about those things that bother you. I will listen to the way you feel and how this affects you and others.
A therapist will accept the way you are without judging you, help you to make the changes you would like to happen and work hard to create a good therapeutic relationship with you so that you can work well together.
They will also be empathetic and understand that it is not always easy to talk about problems and to express your feelings.
The therapist will work with you towards improving your well being.
Therapists may have information and resources to share with you.
