Kate Medlin (MBACP)
Sometimes we realise that we are repeating patterns in our lives that are not particularly helpful, but we can't seem to find a way to break them. Or we can become stuck, feeling like something is blocked, and we don't know how to clear the way through.
Whether there is a specific problem, such as a bereavement, difficulties within a relationship or perhaps a more general feeling that life isn't turning out quite how you had hoped, counselling can allow you to see things clearly, sometimes for the very first time.
Just feeling really heard for the for the first time can in itself be significantly powerful.
Exploring the journey that we have made so far can enable us to cope better with the challenges that lie ahead.
Making the first move to contact a counsellor can feel like a difficult task, but it can also be the first step towards embarking on a fulfilling journey.
