“Trauma is not what happens to us, but what we hold inside in the absence of an empathetic witness.”- Peter .A. Levine
What is Counselling & Psychotherapy?
Counselling & Psychotherapy helps alleviate a range of difficulties. Right from fatigue caused by the pace of living, frustrations that lurk in the background knowing you want to do better but not being able to, overwhelm experienced during phases of transition, crises, trauma and other psychological struggles.
This process involves the presence of a skilled therapist who provides a safe, compassionate, non-judgemental and confidential space for you to explore many layers which have led to the current difficulty. Through the lens of compassionate curiosity, you get to develop a deeper understanding of your entire self (behaviours, goals, challenges) in your context and lived experiences. This new understanding coupled with the professional support provided by the therapist can lead you on your path to connecting with your full potential.
Therapy is an incredibly useful tool that helps with a range of issues, from anxiety to sleep to relationships to trauma. Research shows that it’s incredibly effective in helping people manage mental health conditions and experts say that it’s worth it even if you don’t have a medical problem.
Who is it for?
Some people come to therapy to deal with an immediate problem and, then they go on with their lives. Others want to explore deep issues of emotional and relational growth.
In the therapy process, we talk about life in a way that is different from every-day conversations. We connect with meanings underneath the circumstances and begin to notice patterns. The therapy process facilitates awareness by providing a safe space.
