People come in to therapy for all kinds of reasons. Counselling and psychotherapy can help manage and address a wide range of emotional issues, difficulties and experiences. It’s not about being “crazy” or “mad”, but it is about making changes – both in your life, and in how you feel.
Counselling and psychotherapy come under the broad heading of ‘talking therapies’. I believe that by talking about and exploring the things that have happened, how you are feeling, and the thoughts you are having, you are then able to make positive changes. It’s not possible for us to go back in time and change what has already happened, but it is possible to reduce or remove the negative impact that those things may be still be having on you now.

Examples of the kinds of things people come to therapy for include:
- Stress and anxiety
- Relationship issues
- Workplace problems
- Family difficulties
- Issues relating to sexuality
- Knowing that things ‘just don’t feel right’
People also choose to come to therapy having experienced significant or difficult events, for example:
- Divorce or separation
- Sexual abuse or assault
Whatever apparent similarities there may be, your individual experience is inevitably unique. This means that your experience of coming to therapy will also be unique.
