Who is Counselling & Psychotherapy for?
Deciding to come to counselling or therapy can be a daunting decision. At Living at Choice we firstly identify how we can help you and then work with you to achieve your goals.
Generally we find that our clients come to see us for help or support with issues falling into one of three areas:
Life can at times become overwhelming or behaviour traits that we have kept under control up until now can get the better of us. When we are in a period of crisis, counselling or psychotherapy can be invaluable in enabling us to regain some control of our lives and in breaking painful or difficult patterns or in coming to terms with loss.
Often people choose to come into therapy at a time when they wish to reflect on how they are living their lives and become more aware of how the choices we are making contribute directly to our experience of being in the world and relating to ourselves and others. We cannot choose everything that happens to us, but through therapy we can learn to choose how we are in relation to what has happened / is happening to us.
Counselling can be useful in helping us discover what we want and how we can go about making that a reality. This may sound simple, but often we repress our desires out of fear of the consequences - we find we are scared of getting what we want. Avoiding our desire and seeking safety, leaves us feeling anxious, depressed and lacking a sense of fulfilment and meaning.
Being in a relationship is never easy. It is common for couples to find themselves in a crisis or unable to relate to each other at some point in their relationship. Couple therapy enables you and your partner to feel supported as you are guided in re-establishing honest communication with each other so you can work out how best to move forward in your relationship. You may rediscover what originally brought you together; you may need to move out of painful and dysfunctional patterns of relating to create a new relationship. Or, it may mean that the relationship has run its course. Couple therapy provides a safe, supportive and facilitative environment to focus on your relationship.
