Counselling and Psychotherapy
Asking for help can be tough. But counselling, or longer-term psychotherapy, can help you come out of difficult times and find greater happiness in day-to-day life. Some of the many benefits of counselling are:
– Breaking out of the dead-end cycle of anxious thoughts and feelings.
– Dissolving the black cloud of depression.
– Letting go of difficult experiences and feelings in the past and moving on.
– Understanding yourself better.
– Regaining – or finding for the first time – a feeling of contentment about your life.
To put it simply – if you feel stuck and unhappy, counselling could be the difference you’re looking for.
There are so many different approaches to counselling. For the layperson, who simply wants some help, it can be confusing.
Carl Rogers was one of the forefathers of modern ‘humanistic’ therapy, in which therapy is seen as a partnership (rather than a doctor-patient relationship) for change and growth.
“When I have been listened to and when I have been heard, I am able to re-perceive my world in a new way and to go on. It is astonishing how elements that seem insoluble become soluble when someone listens, how confusions that seem irremediable turn into relatively clear flowing streams when one is heard.”
Carl Rogers, the founder of person-centred therapy.
With 20 years’ experience, I know that counselling and psychotherapy do create real and sustainable change.
“Counselling with Stephen gently challenged my thoughts and preconceptions …It helped me greatly and led me to changes that I otherwise would not have had the energy or courage to make.”
Ann, former client.
