Why seek counselling?
Updated: Dec 16, 2019
Accessing psychotherapy can offer new self-knowledge and self-awareness resulting in a new way of being. This new self-awareness can bring relief in your life and the possibility of feeling understood.
What is Psychodynamic Psychotherapy?
Psychodynamic psychotherapy focuses on examining “why”. It offers the opportunity to explore our inner world and those parts of ourselves that we may have kept hidden in order to function in the external world. This approach allows us to make links between our past and present and explore how we can make changes and make our life/experiences more comfortable.
At the heart of counselling is the relationship with your counsellor. It is based on safety and trust so that you will be able to sensitively explore your past and problematic relationships that may still be influencing who you are now and your current relationships and behaviour.
When to seek help?
If you want to seek help to deal with anxiety and depression symptoms.
If you regularly recognise problematic patterns in your behaviour that affect your interpersonal relationships.
If you have recently had a traumatic experience, such as bereavement, accident, sudden loss of job, end of a relationship.

People seek help and come to counselling for a wide range of difficulties;
Feeling low for no apparent reason
