There are reasons for our difficulties: e.g. anxiety, despair, addiction, isolation, life transitions, anger, grief, trauma, worthlessness, domination, etc,. The counselling process enables us to meet, understand and repair these. It helps us then to reclaim our true self, perhaps for the first time in a long time or ever. Working in this way with a counsellor allows you to heal in ways that are life enhancing and endure. Whatever causes you fear, harm and/or damage historically and/or now, can actually be harvested to transform your life.
Life can be challenging. It can be difficult opening up to someone about the worst that's happened to us, about the parts of ourselves we struggle with. For some dealing with trauma can impact how we treat others, having negative impacts on relationships & life. I’ve worked for over 25 years with those who’ve experienced complex trauma: who’ve lived/worked in conflict zones; been abused by family; struggle to emotionally regulate; have been abusive & with relationship breakdown. As a couple it’s important to feel the therapist you choose is able to work with you around your relationship.
