Talk has power

Talking helps us share what is on our minds with other people; the hope is that others will help us understand something better, get another perspective, help us problem-solve.

Talking is a simple human act, yet the pressures of life cause so much misunderstanding. Often we are so caught up in the turmoil of life, that we are left with little time to sit down with others and make sense of what is going on. When problems are left unresolved they tend to escalate until something needs to be done about them.

What does a counsellor do?

A Counsellor will:

  • Help you examine all aspect of your life, your thoughts, you behaviour, your feelings

What happens during therapy

Therapy sessions begin with discussing any pressing issues concerning you. This is usually combined with collecting relevant background information and perhaps some personal history that will help shed light on the case.

It should be noted that everything discussed is private and confidential. Counsellors and psychotherapists are ethically bound to not disclose any material to any third parties, except for the purposes of clinical supervision

As discussion progresses there is increasing focus on the most relevant issues. The process helps gain insight to areas of thoughts and feelings that have previously been overlooked. By making connections between thoughts and actions and feelings we are able to see events in our lives with new understanding.

There has never been a better time to have counselling. Due to recent events, media coverage and endorsement from high-profile figures people have an increasing awareness that counselling changes lives, for the better.

For your own safety please ensure that any therapist you choose is registered with a recognised accrediting body such as the BACP
