Therapy helps people to have a private and confidential place to talk about and explore thoughts and feelings. Everyone encounters problems from time to time
Difficulties in the present are most likely to have originated in past experiences. Understanding these is a necessary step towards achieving changes in perception, awareness and relationships.
Therapy also helps you become aware of habits in relationships so that you can understand and change them if you want to.
Sometimes patterns of relating are recreated with the therapist and we call this transference. In therapy this helps the therapist to understand you and to share this understanding. The depth of awareness gained gives you the freedom and confidence to change.
Having a greater understanding of yourself enables you to make more of your relationships and to have a fuller and more satisfying emotional life.
