A Counsellor and Psychotherapist will listen to all you need to say and will respect your values. This can enable you to have an increasing awareness of yourself and your choice of possibilities. A Counsellor will give little or no direct advice, as the aim of Counselling and Psychotherapy is to help you to develop insight and a new way of understanding your problems and to help you to build some foundations for change.
Initially the process might feel strange. It might feel a challenge to talk about yourself with a stranger. Sometimes it can be difficult to start Counselling because you know deep down that you have some difficult issues to address.
Counselling can also feel liberating because of the sense that you are making moves towards releasing yourself from the pressures you have been under and which have felt heavy and hard to bear. It can also be freeing to have the opportunity of reflecting on issues in your own space with someone who is not known to you in any other way but who is trained and experienced in helping people gain insights and release.
The Counselling/Psychotherapy process can enable you to understand more of the background to what is happening in your life and the emotions you are experiencing. This can help unlock the patterns of behaviour which has kept repeating in your life.
