I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.
– C.J. Jung
Contacting a therapist for the first time can be daunting. It is a very big step; however it is one of the most valuable steps you can take for yourself.
Psychotherapy and Counselling belong in the same group of treatments know as “talking therapies”, it is time put aside by you and the therapist to look at what brought you to therapy. This might include talking about life events, (past and present), feelings, emotions, relationships, ways of thinking and patterns of behaviour. Therapy can help you make sense of complex feelings, and empower you to make the changes you need in order to live a fulfilling and meaningful life.
