29 The Drive
'I was really down and stuck when I first saw Emma... With kindness, gentleness and humour I gained insight into my situation. Life is more meaningful and fun now.'
Feedback from Michelle, Barnet
We seek counselling when we encounter difficulties affecting our everyday life. Psychotherapy is energising and delivers life-changing insights. Further, it helps us discard habits and patterns that have hindered us. Be it relationship issues, work, anxiety or lack of direction, counselling can help release us and re-direct us. Or it might help refresh, revive and renew us.
The counselling session provides a confidential space for support and reflection.
Stuckness happens because we tend to repeat the same mistakes, have the same rows, or keep doing or feeling the same things. Recognising these patterns and finding value in resources we habitually overlook can help us see the truth of:
where we are
who we are
where we want to be
Many of us are put off therapy as it sounds like 'navel gazing misery', but it can be truly life affirming, stimulating and creative - even playful. It is a chance to explore who we are in a safe and confidential space.
