At this difficult time, we are aware that many clients will be experiencing high levels of stress and anxiety. Our therapists offer telephone and Skype consultations to continue to support you.
They say that a problem shared is a problem halved. As with all old sayings, there’s a grain of truth in there. It’s certainly true about talking about your problems. Much better to air the very thing that’s troubling you than to bottle it up where it can fester and affect your health. That’s why counselling is so important.
What is counselling?
Counselling is an extremely effective form of ‘talking therapy’. If you are struggling to manage your life because you are going through a period of emotional or psychological distress and confusion, then a professional, registered counsellor can help.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy. CBT looks at the links between the way we think, the way we behave and the emotions or physical sensations we experience. These links can form a vicious cycle, a pattern which can maintain feelings of low mood, stress, and anxiety. CBT helps you to understand and break these patterns which leads to improvements in mental wellbeing.
What sorts of problems can counselling and CBT help with?
The problems, anxieties and issues that counselling can help to treat and come to terms with are wide and varied. They include the following: abuse, terminal and chronic illness, bereavement, confidence, depression, panic attacks, suicidal thoughts, trauma, managing change, workplace stress, and relationship problems. And this really is just the tip of the iceberg.
How does counselling and CBT help?
Seeing a counsellor/CBT therapist gives you the opportunity to see a professional therapist to talk over your issues in a bid to understand yourself and your situation. Your therapist will help you to reflect on your life experiences and how you respond to new ones. In addition to this, your therapist will help you to identify potential changes you could make in your life to help reduce distress you are experiencing. In essence, your therapist will help you to identify a new and healthier path in your life, and help you take the first steps towards moving on to that path.
Why is it important to see a professional registered therapist?
The counselling/ CBT process often involves revealing and discussing personal feelings and thoughts with your therapist. Therefore to open up in such a way, you need absolute confidence that the therapist you are seeing is working to the highest possible standards of practice within the profession. It is absolutely vital when undergoing counselling that you go to a professional registered counsellor and that you check their qualifications.
