Counselling, Psychotherapy & Coaching in Cambridge
Do you feel unhappy, angry or distressed? Are you undergoing a critical life event such as retirement, bereavement, ill health, divorce or redundancy? More confusingly, do you find yourself feeling directionless or 'stuck' – but not quite sure why?
It can be hard to express our deepest feelings and private concerns. We may fear being judged by others or upsetting those closest to us. We may believe that we have no one willing – or able – to listen.
In therapy, you are offered a safe, confidential and collaborative space in which to focus on the things that matter most. It is a forum in which to talk (guilt-free) about you; to uncover what troubles or holds you back and in which to find greater understanding of yourself and the conditions of your existence.
At the heart of all successful therapy is the relationship. Your therapist should be impartial and non-judgemental, and should not offer you 'cures' or make decisions on your part. Rather, s/he should offer empathy and appropriate
challenge, while encouraging you to be accountable to yourself and to arrive at your own interpretations and solutions.
Subjects you may wish to bring to therapy could include past and present relationships; significant life events; life's meaning and purpose; and your ways of thinking and behaving. Each session is your space and time alone, to use in any way you find useful or appropriate.
You may enter therapy at any stage of your life. Therapy should never discriminate for gender, age, race, culture, ability or sexuality. By enabling you to explore the different facets of your self and experience, therapy can help deepen your self-awareness and strengthen your relationships with others.
Above all, therapy can reward you with far greater insight, enhancing personal growth and wellbeing and supporting acceptance and change.
