Psychotherapy and Counselling - Milton Keynes - Woburn Sands - Bedford
What can I expect from the sessions?
At the first session we will identify your aims and how we can work collaboratively on what you wish to get out of the work. Then we will explore your issues, along with your thoughts and feelings surrounding the dilemmas you are facing. You will be encouraged to reflect on your thoughts, feelings, reactions and behaviours, and sometimes these will be challenged empathically, with humour and sensitivity so that you can take a different perspective. The therapeutic process and relationship, will help you to facilitate a deeper understanding of whatever is creating distress or unhappiness, and the context in which this happens.
Coming into therapy might seem like a big step and it might be difficult to admit you need help. It is a misconception that you can work out problems on your own. We all need need support, and objectivity at some time in life. You may have questions or concerns about how psychotherapy will impact upon you personally and with other key relationships in your life. Whatever your concerns are, I am very happy to speak to you over the telephone to take the time to answer any questions you have without any obligation to set up sessions.
