How Therapy Can Help

Most people can think about a time in their lives when they have found it too difficult to talk to their friends or relatives about something that is worrying or distressing them.

There can be a number of reasons for this. Sometimes, it can simply be because we find it too hard to express difficult feelings and emotions with those close to us. We may be worried that we might burden or worry our family or friends with our problems. We may also be concerned that we may be judged, or that what we say may not be kept confidential.

These are just a few reasons why some people find therapy useful. Quite often, people find it easier to talk to a stranger – a professional therapist.

Our Therapists provide you with a space where they will listen to what you have to say. They will not judge you, nor will they offer you advice. The role of a therapist is to help you explore and express difficult feelings and emotions. To help you understand your feelings and find ways that enable you to live your life in a more satisfying way.

Our therapists offer you an environment that is:

  • Confidential
  • Non-judgmental
  • Professional
  • Respectful
  • Safe

People use therapy for a number of reasons:

  • To support them through a difficult time in their lives, such as coping with a crisis, the breakdown of a relationship, problems at work, bereavement, illness or redundancy.
  • To explore deeper personal issues – for example, to explore and make links between past and present behaviours and relationships.
  • For self development reasons, to improve personal insight, self awareness, self esteem, confidence and to develop their problem solving skills.
