Psychotherapy and Counselling Brighton.
How this can
Available wherever you are in the world
The aim of counselling is to offer caring, professional assistance that can help you identify the root cause of your difficulties and assist you in finding the best ways to address and resolve them. This may involve changing behaviours that contribute to the issue or by finding constructive ways to deal with a situation that may seem beyond your personal control.
It can help you to feel more at peace with yourself and comfortable in your own skin.
Counselling and Psychotherapy can particularly be of benefit when you are undergoing a crisis or a change of some kind. Nearly everyone faces challenges and difficulties in their life at some time. But sometimes they can be overwhelming, and we feel like we are helpless. Stress over a job, anxiety caused by uncertainty over the future, loss because of bereavement, problems over addiction or difficulties in a relationship are just some of the reasons why people feel they can benefit by talking to a professional Counsellor or Psychotherapist.
Therapists offer help in addressing many situations that cause emotional distress, including, but not limited to:
Relationship difficulties (e.g. within families, with partners)
Anxiety, Depression, Stress and other mental and emotional challenges
Social and emotional difficulties related to disability and illness
Addiction problems – e.g. alcohol and substance abuse, gambling and other addictions
Sexual abuse and domestic violence
Career and job stress
Although at various stages in your life there are times when you may need help addressing issues that cause emotional distress or make you feel overwhelmed it is a common misunderstanding about the nature of therapy to assume that you need to be in crisis or experiencing something very difficult to benefit from it.
We constantly face challenges as we navigate life and counselling or psychotherapy can be a form of guidance and support to help you move forward in a healthy and balanced way rather than accumulating stress and bottling up feelings until a crisis point does occur. It can actually be a very effective outlet so that you can feel supported and see more clearly what is needed to bring things into greater harmony.
