Attuning To Your Needs
I understand that sometimes feelings can be difficult to talk about. Some feelings can even be impossible to acknowledge or even admit to ourselves and or to the people we feel closest to. But I have found that speaking to a therapist in a therapeutic setting can be a very helpful experience. It can perhaps be quite a freeing experience.
Life can be difficult sometimes.
Therapy can provide an environment that gives space and time to your thoughts and most importantly to your feelings. Somewhere you can reach your own conclusions at your own pace. I often think of therapy as walking down a dimly-lit path with someone holding a torch. Perhaps the path is unknown, familiar or just intriguing. By walking down that path with a therapist, a light may be shone on things that may not have been visible before. But you will not be doing it alone. I will be there with you.
Psychotherapy is a particular type of therapy. It is integrative; which means that it doesn't just draw from one particular source of therapeutic knowledge or beliefs, it integrates a variety of different schools of thought. I believe that this can be beneficial to you, the client, as it allows a greater scope for understanding. If allowed to, psychotherapy can go right to the roots of your living tree. It can provide you with an opportunity to get to truly know yourself. To have a look inside and see what is going on.
Rather than listing off the various reasons people may come to therapy, I feel it might be helpful to recognise that thinking you would like to talk to someone about something is reason enough.
Everything is relevant, it is all real. Because it is how you feel. Your feelings are real and important. There are what make you YOU.
