Home » Why seek therapy?

Starting individual or couples therapy is often a brave action and is always a responsible thing to do. By choosing to explore what’s troubling you in counselling and psychotherapy, you are choosing to get behind yourself and that in itself is a positive step. Therapy can be hard work, it can be cathartic, it can be painful and it can be freeing. I will always work at your pace and you will choose what you bring to therapy.

We seek therapy for many reasons and you will bring your own uniqueness, here are some of the issues that clients might bring:

  • Wanting to explore how to feel more satisfied in relationships; with parents, partners, children, friends or colleagues
  • Feeling paralysed by anxiety – full of fear and panic
  • Needing to speak to someone other than family and friends, who won’t judge or offer opinion
  • Feeling out of control of self-defeating behaviours
  • Addiction and self-harm
  • Feeling ashamed and full of self-loathing
  • Feeling full of rage and unable to contain it
  • Wanting to talk about troubling events from the past
  • Feeling ruled by a need to control situations that are uncontrollable
  • Grieving the loss of a relationship
  • Feeling low and hopeless without seeing a way forward
