Why see a Psychologist?
Life can be complicated and relationships can be confusing. Counselling provides the opportunity for people to explore past and present issues which may be impacting their life and relationships today. Counselling can enable people to explore their emotions and thoughts in a supportive, safe environment. The process of counselling can lead to change of long term patterns, greater self awareness and insight and, an increase in confidence and self-esteem. It can also provide guidance for people as they explore better ways of coping with and responding to troubling issues in their life.
Often a person will initiate counselling when they are feeling overwhelmed and confused. At other times people will choose to attend counselling because they are aware that events from their past or present are impacting them and they would like to change this. Most people find a sense of relief in being able to talk freely to an independent person about their feelings and experiences in a supportive, non-judgmental atmosphere.
A counselling psychologist is trained to ask questions that will help to develop insight and process emotions related to events that have been stressful or distressing. A focus on positive change and how to implement it in your specific situation is also a significant part of counselling. Often people say that the process of therapy can feel reassuring and calming and lead to a greater sense of value and worth, and self-empowerment.
Seeing a psychologist as a couple can assist with clarifying and addressing issues that are impacting the relationship. It can open communication in a safe environment and assist with building trust, managing anger, and conflict management. Most couples who attend relationship counselling find it beneficial in changing unhealthy patterns and fostering a positive relationship.
