Will Counselling Help Me?
In the midst of a crisis, there are times when the best course of action is to dig deep and try and cope the best way we can.
There are other times, when we are struggling to cope or recognise we are caught in repeating cycles, when it makes sense to seek professional help.
As you are reading this today you may be currently considering whether now is the time to take action to improve your own life.
The decision to enter therapy, and by doing so, begin to better understand the causes of your unhappiness, can be the first and most important step towards improving the quality of your life. Taking time to unravel the underlying thoughts and feelings that currently drive your behaviour can enable you to make more skilful choices for the future.
Counselling can provide not just personal benefits but also cultivate deeper insight that will help shape healthier and more fulfilling relationships.
Couples often seek help when their relationship has deteriorated into cycles of spoken and/or unspoken hostility. As healthy communication breaks down, resentments and misunderstandings further fuel a negative spiral.
Couple counselling is a safe, mediated process where both partners are given the time and space to explore their own and their partner’s thoughts and feelings. Improved communication and mutual understanding allow a healthier and more constructive assessment of the relationship and ways in which it may improve.
