Thoughts on therapy from a Stamford Counsellor
In chats with potential clients I'm often asked whether counselling could help. There's no definitive answer - effective psychotherapy is a collaboration between therapist and client, so there are endless variables, but based on my client's experiences, here are some changes you might be able to make
Thoughts on Therapy from a Counsellor in Stamford
If you've never seen a counsellor before, it can seem a daunting prospect. So if you think you'd like you'd like to talk, but the thought is somewhat scary, I've written some blogs to try to help you feel more at ease...
Maybe this would be your first experience of counselling? If so, I get how nervous this could make you feel. So my first priority is to help you feel as safe and comfortable as I can.
My starting point is to see you as a unique individual, with your own history,
relationships, worries, problems, hopes and dreams.
I'm here to listen to you fully, to really understand how it is for you right now.
You can share anything knowing that I'll remain calm. I'll validate your struggles and I won't tell you what to do or judge you.
Exploring your past can lead to lasting change, but you may want to focus on issues you're facing now. Either way, I won't pressure you to talk about anyting you aren't ready for.
Your psychological safety is important to me, so we'll work at a pace that feels right for you.
From my personal experience I know that sharing your troubles, feeling understood,
considering what you really want, and learning new ways to manage anxiety, can have
a life-changing impact on the way that you feel.
If you feel like it's time for your life to change direction, and are considering counselling in Stamford, or via telephone or online therapy, please contact me by email, or phone or text 07870 135986.
We'll then arrange a free, confidential chat so I can hear a little about the issues you are facing, and you can get a sense of whether working with me would feel right for you...
