Sometimes we all find it hard to accept something that has happened. Sometimes we have feelings we don't understand or find our feelings painful to cope with. Other times we just need someone impartial to talk too, to share our feelings with, explore our options, someone professional and unconnected to our lives. Everyone's reasons for coming into therapy and what they want from it will be different.
Counselling can give you insight into your feelings and reveal unconscious processes and patterns that could be contributing to your problems.
Understanding these feelings and identifying these patterns and unconscious processes can take time so you need a safe, confidential, non-judgemental and supportive environment.
This is essential for you to explore your emotions, anxiety and/or difficulties to help understand yourself and subsequently help you move on.
