Therapy is a process that involves talking openly and honestly about your experiences and feelings, and exploring what they mean in the context of your past, your present, and your desires now and for the future.
Working in this way, you can expect:
to be listened to
to explore your feelings in a safe, non-judgemental environment with someone who is not directly involved
to understand yourself better and to make your own choices.
The process may also help you:
feel better able to cope
examine current and past problems
alter the way you see your relationships
better accept yourself and others
make more meaningful decisions.
The work can be short term or open-ended and may take some time, sometimes over more than one session a week.
