"Therapy offers a private and sacred space to think, feel and experience your true self, it explores your needs, it processes feelings, and from this comes a new clarity, and you may feel different, clearer. I sometimes think of it as coming out of the dark woods and into the light. This transforming of the self takes place at first within the therapeutic relationship. Being listened to unfolds a discovery of new insights, which activates the development of inner strength, resilience, resolve, and purpose, as it gradually releases you from the felt wounds you have been carrying, such as, anger, sadness, grief, regret or loss.

"Being outdoors, in nature can help your mental health. Trusted studies have shown how it can help reduce anxiety, stress, depression and low mood, boost self esteem, and be useful for people in life crisis, feeling stuck or struggling with loss or bereavement. Movement helps you process feelings and thoughts more clearly. If you don't want to sit opposite your therapist in a confined indoor space Outdoor Therapy might be worth a try. Outside you can find your own path, we can wander slowly, walk briskly or find a space to sit for the whole session. Often we will end up doing a mixture of these things, depending on how you feel."

"Life is rarely straightforward and it's not always easy untangle things on your own. Psychotherapy offers the opportunity to slow down and take a bit of time to look at the conditions of our lives. From there we can start to develop awareness of how we think, feel and respond to relationships and the situations we find ourselves in. Sometimes past circumstances can come to determine how we deal with things in the present. Psychotherapy aims to help us identify patterns and choose what to change. Working through issues in this way can create more choices in how we respond to others and the circumstances of our lives. "

"Clients access therapy for a multitude of reasons; there may be difficulties at work, challenges in a relationship or a client may have been abused spanning a number of years. My hope with therapy is to explore the roots of issues, to rediscover our innate resilience, to build self-esteem and to help you meet your goals, your hopes, your wishes. Many people access therapy because they want to feel different, to change the emotions they are experiencing, or for others it may be learning to access those feelings that have perhaps been locked away through trauma.

Narrative Counsellors
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviours. PL2 Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviours and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in PL2.

How can I tell if a counsellor is right for me?
Counsellors and therapists in PL2 are able to work with a wide range of issues.
