Have the following thoughts ever crossed your mind about psychotherapy?
Therapy isn’t for me
Counselling is for others with mental health issues
Talking about my problems won’t help
If so, you wouldn’t be the only one believing these mistruths! Having therapy can be a life-changing and positive learning experience and these days the benefits of therapy are more widely known. Increasing numbers of people accessing therapy at some point in their lives and also talking openly about it. Therapy can not only help us overcome periodic difficulties, but also support us in developing improved and more fulfilling ways of being in our day to day lives.
Psychotherapy is a tool that can help you grow and develop in a profound way
People may come to therapy for a variety of reasons and there’s no doubt that having the time and space to sit and talk to someone about difficulties you are facing is of a huge relief and support. The benefit of seeing a professional therapist is that you will experience non-judgemental acceptance and non-biased and empathic committed attention. You may not always get from your nearest and dearest.
Psychotherapy is a proven process that will show you how your mind works, how you react in the ways that you do and why you get on with some people and can’t stand others. It is an enriching learning journey that more and more people are benefiting from.
Increasingly people are also opting to go into therapy at a time in their lives when things are going pretty well, recognising that the benefits of improved mental well-being go far beyond periods of crisis.
