Need some space to talk?
… worried about a relationship or work?
… struggling to come to terms with a loss or bereavement?
… suffering from depression or feeling anxious?
… having family difficulties?
Perhaps there's no time when you can stop..., take a breath..., look around..., reflect on or absorb what's going on for you.
No space to pause..., gather yourself together in one place and begin to make sense of things.
It may be that you've been soldiering on for some time yet, underneath it all, feel isolated, anxious or unhappy - unsure what to do or who to turn to. Talking with family or friends is often useful and could be all you need for much of the time, however sometimes that might be more difficult. This is when speaking with a professional - someone outside your family or social group - can help by bringing a fresh perspective to what 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 a dedicated time and space where you can talk in confidence, will be listened to without judgment, taken seriously and encouraged to pause and take stock, reflect on things in more depth and detail and think about your life thus far. This helps you to focus, understand yourself and current difficulties with more clarity and insight, to discover your own solutions and re-gain equilibrium and confidence.
I believe we all have far more inner resources than we think we do and the experience of feeling listened to and understood by someone else can help us tap into those inner strengths, enabling us to find our own best way forward.
