Is Therapy for Me?

Deciding to have therapy can feel like a big decision. People often feel they do not need to talk or cannot see how talking to ‘a stranger’ could help.  

Engaging in a therapeutic process is a brave but often hugely beneficial decision. If you are in the process of divorce or separation – or trying to manage during a time of negotiations about your children – it can be extremely stressful, and your feelings may be overwhelming. At this point, it could be useful to engage with a therapist so that you have a confidential and safe environment to explore often challenging emotions and their resulting behaviours.  

A therapist will not try to solve your problems. A therapist will help enable you to be curious as to why you feel the way you do and help you develop emotional growth and strategies to move you through a complex period in your life.   

Therapy can help with many things, from feeling worried or depressed, if you have experienced trauma or abuseto addictive behaviours as well as issues to do with obsessive thoughts or impulsive or destructive behaviour.  

Often during divorce or separation, you may find yourself experiencingor recovering from, a whole range of emotions or behaviours. Therapy can provide you with a separate space away from family and friends in which to gain insight and acceptance during a difficult time.   

Contact us to ask about our counsellor. It may well provide you with the valuable space you need during a complicated time.
