Counselling: talking therapy to help ease worries and anxieties

Posted by:

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.

Our fully qualified and registered counsellors at Cheshire Natural Health are very experienced in helping clients using this well-established and clinically proven form of psychological help.

What sorts of problems can counselling 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 help?

Seeing a counsellor 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 counsellor will help you to identify potential changes you could make in your life to help reduce distress you are experiencing. In essence, your counsellor 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 counsellor?

The counselling 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.
