Therapy can help anyone to cope better with the challenges that life entails.
It is not true that you have to reach a crisis point before starting therapy. The truth is you don't have to have specific issues in order to need support. There are many relevant reasons to find a therapist, all equally valid and important. Some examples are you may be lonely, adjusting to a recent life change or struggling to cope with depression and anxiety.
Counselling is a talking therapy that can help you see things more clearly and possibly from a different view point. It is a safe, non-judgmental space to find the best way forward for you to feel better, enabling you to focus on your feelings, experiences or behaviour, with the goal to facilitate a positive change in your life.
Everyone experiences grief differently and I can support you through the process. Having experienced grief myself I have an understanding of how you may feel. Grief has no time limit and you will know when you are ready to talk to someone. I will help you care for yourself during this time and support you to find a way to adapt and cope with the present and future without your loved one. It is important to remember that you may feel you have grieved for your loved one but memories can be evoked by special events or anniversaries that may trigger your feelings of loss again and this is normal.
Counselling can help you to find a new way to communicate with each other and find a positive way forward. You can talk in a confidential environment exploring your feelings and thoughts together (and apart if desired). Relationship therapy is an investment in your relationship or can help you to make tough decisions with support.
