What Is Counselling And Therapy
Talking therapies provide an opportunity to talk, in complete confidence, to a professional who knows how to listen and is not involved in your outside life at all. This takes place at the same time and place each week, providing support and continuity.
Work can be focused on a particular problem and take a short time. Alternatively work can be wide-ranging and deeper. This can take time and may require seeing therapist more than once a week.
The aims of talking therapies are to:-
- Increase self confidence
- Enable choices
How it works:-
- By talking through experiences and exploring feelings, thoughts and beliefs, sometimes including past events.
- By helping to identify sources of conflict.
- By helping to recognise sources of problems, present or possibly from the past
Together these allow the client to clarify their attitudes and re-assess their position and feelings.
