Psychotherapy and counselling are about creating a safe space in which you can explore the issues you are experiencing in your life. Everyone uses this space differently – some people talk about their early experiences, others focus more on recent experiences or their current situation. Considering counselling is a big step, and one that we may put off until we hit rock bottom. Counselling, or therapy is a targeted therapeutic conversation of meaning, within professional boundaries. It is not a place where you have to do scary things. Change happens in the counselling room, even if you don’t think it is possible. There is no right or wrong way of using therapy.
