Stressful or traumatic experiences and relationships at any stage of our lives can greatly impair our emotional health and sense of well-being. In an atmosphere of safety and trust with your therapist you can begin to explore thoughts, behaviour and emotions which may have been too painful or confusing to face alone. This can help you to move forward where previously you may have felt stuck. Psychotherapy can also develop your ability to think about how you feel and what you experience, and this can make feelings and experiences safe, accessible, and a source of growth rather than suffering. Perhaps most importantly, psychotherapy can help you to feel deeply heard and understood.
“We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time”
