What is the aim of counselling and psychotherapy?
The aim of therapy is to increase awareness, discover choices and develop skills for changes that feel right for you. Sometimes we feel stuck with an emotional challenge and might wish to reflect on our lives from a new perspective. Sometimes a stressful situation or traumatic event leaves us feeling vulnerable and unable to cope.
You may want to work on a current life event, or something that has been troubling you for some time. Seeing a therapist means talking with someone in a confidential, reflective and caring space. This helps you explore issues and understand your situation and emotions more fully and with greater clarity leading to new insights and a sense of empowerment and control.
Better understanding promotes self-esteem, confidence and an improved quality of life.
