She listened for the pain in my words, not to the narrative itself. She was intuiting what it meant to me, what was most important, what, in that confused mass of experience and yearning
she heard in my voice, she could single out to give back.- Alice Sebold
Is therapy for me?
Our journey through life provides us with a variety of experiences. When they become painful or frightening, particularly if there is nobody to whom we can turn for support, a damaging imprint is left on our body, mind and feelings, sending our lives onto a different path. It is during these periods that we may need to contact a professional to support us in finding ways to accept any challenges and find new ways to achieve a sense of purpose and growth.
Psychotherapy helps you to look inward in order to find greater inner ground and equilibrium and a deeper sense of self. From this place you are more able to engage with the world through meaningful and fulfilling relationships. It may create a space not only for increased emotional well being but also for connection to the spiritual.
Talking to a therapist allows you to explore these issues in a private, confidential and safe space and helps you to find inner freedom and effective, satisfying ways of living. It also helps you to develop increased awareness and understanding of the difficulties you are experiencing within yourself and in your relationships with others. This can open the way for something new to emerge and for old, unhelpful patterns to be left behind.
