. . . going through relationship or family difficulties?

Perhaps there's no time to be still..., take a breath..., look around..., reflect on or absorb what's going on in your life...
No space to pause.... take a step back...., gather yourself together in one place... and begin to sift through and make sense of things...
Maybe you've been soldiering on for some time but, underneath, feeling unhappy or worried, unsure what to do or who to turn to. Sharing your thoughts with friends or family can be very useful and maybe all you need to do most of the time. Sometimes, though, that might not be so easy. This is when talking with a professional psychotherapist or counsellor, someone from outside your family and social group, can help by bringing a fresh perspective and insight to whatever is troubling you; whether it's something recent that's been upsetting or you've been unhappy for a while.
Meeting with a psychotherapist or counsellor gives you a dedicated time and space where you can talk in confidence, will be listened to without judgment and taken seriously. You'll be encouraged to slow down, take stock and reflect on your life thus far. This helps you gain a wider perspective on things, enabling you to focus and understand yourself and current difficulties with more clarity and depth. Psychotherapy or counselling supports you to self-reflect, find your own solutions and re-gain your equilibrium and confidence.
I think we all have far more inner resources than we realise and the experience of feeling listened to and understood by someone else can help us tap into these inner strengths, helping us find our own best path ahead.

I'm particularly skilled and attuned to working in this field and was a bereavement counsellor in a hospice for over 5 years. My experience includes counselling those who have suffered a traumatic bereavement such as a sudden death, a suicide or the death of a child.
Sometimes a death that occurred many years ago may still need to be spoken about and mourned; the impact of it given attention and the shared history with that person remembered and given a place in our lives.
