Counselling at Twickenham therapy clinic
Counselling, at its core, is a primary form of talking therapy, a more modern
way of dealing with human emotions and difficult times in people’s lives.
Believe it or not, the idea of mental health being seen as a medical concern
dates back to the ancient Greeks.
Modern day psychology has come a long way
since then, mostly owing to the revolutionary developments in the field by
Sigmund Freud, often referred to as the father of psychotherapy. Cutting edge
research and breakthroughs in science and technology have given us a better
understanding of how the brain works and talking is an effective way of working
through certain issues.
The ultimate goal of counselling is to help people cope with the problems
they may be facing, however big or small, and eventually to overcome their
problems. It’s important to remember that there is no one-size-fits-all
approach to counselling, nor to any kind of talking therapy.
journey is different and as unique as each individual going through the
process of counselling. Some people seek out talking therapy to help deal
with or bring about change in their lives, whereas others use this confidential
space to explore their thoughts and feelings in a safe environment with
Counselling as treatment
The holistic approach to counselling makes it effective at treating a wide
range of personal problems, making it a popular choice of treatment. From
addiction and bereavement to relationships and trauma, counselling offers
a safe space to explore these issues and help you cope with the emotions
that accompany them.
The stress and anxiety of daily life is another reason
many people seek counselling. Victims of trauma or abuse often carry repressed
feelings throughout their lives and talking therapy provides an outlet,
helping them to move on with their lives.
But you don’t need to have
suffered through something traumatic to reap the benefits of counselling.
If life has been a bit overwhelming lately and you would like the opportunity
to talk about or learn new coping techniques, then counselling could be
right for you.
What to expect during counselling
The best part about counselling is that there is no right or wrong way
to do it. Each session is flexible, and you are free to discuss your overarching
goals or specific things that have happened in your life. By talking through
your problems and feelings you wish to work through, counselling sessions
can not only help get things off your chest, but also help get to the root
of the problem.
Many people who seek counselling have specific thought cycles
and are looking to break those cycles or change their thought process to
be more positive. Whatever your motivations, just remember that everyone’s
journey through talking therapy is different and your counsellor is there
to make sure it is the right approach for you.
