A Cry for Help
I lack Motivation and self-actualisation
Not wanting to get out of bed
Oh what’s in my Head?
Sometimes thinking I’m better off dead
Negative thoughts of
Ought to do this
I should have done that
I’m so bad
Generalising, comparing to others
I always feel sad
I don’t know why
I often cry
In silence or in my room
Thoughts of myself
There’s plenty of time,
To reflect, ponder and wander
On what should have been, wanting to be seen, to be held, cared for, loved
I really ought to scream
This is such a bad dream
Activity – shrug
I try to go out
But my thought places doubt
I walk down a street and the people I meet
What are they thinking?
What’s wrong with me?
What are they looking at?
I don’t fit in
It feels like I’m in the wrong skin
I’m shaking, I’m nervous, my heart beating fast, my legs are in pain
It’s all such a drain
My evidence is strong, it’s me, and I am the one who is wrong
So I go home, it’s my safe place
Rest on the couch
Have another sleep, I’m so tired
I don’t even want to eat
Soon the day will be ended
Tomorrow I may be mended
What should I do? What ought I to do?
The Answer to the questions you seek;
Ask for HELP
TALK TO OTHERS, LOVED ONES, FRIENDS
PERHAPS YOU CAN’T DO THIS ON YOUR OWN
Possibly you are in such a muddle it’s all such a struggle
You don’t have to be alone
SEEK HELP, IT’S AT THE END OF THE PHONE, OR PRESS A COMPUTER KEY
HOW HARD CAN THAT BE
TO CONNECT YOU TO ME
Here to listen
I don’t tell you what to do, but to offer help to improve
Manage your mood
Manage your thoughts
Manage your thinking
To change your behaviour
In the end, you’ll be your own saviour
I HAVE BEEN THERE MYSELF
Why not let me help you?
Together we can face your issues - I will listen to what you have to say, not judge, criticise, or tell you what you should do, but together look at new ways and possibilities, and if you are happy, teach you new skills and give you the tools to deal with your problems more effectively.
How can I help?
I strongly hold the belief that the basic aim of therapy is to get you to a place where you feel comfortable and are moving forward without therapy, and as such will stay with you through to outcomes and mutually agreed goals. For many years I have lost count of the number of individuals I have supported back to well-being and achieved positive outcomes.
I don't have the answers, and I will not give you advice. But based on my training and experience, I will get a really good sense of what's going on for you and help you to move forward in a safe, non-judgemental, confidential and professional manner.
I am able to offer you a choice of many interventions including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
The benefits of using CBT are many, its methods are direct, it is challenging, but the important aspect is such that together with my help you will learn new skills to confront your issues and not just to lock them away, for them to re-appear at a later date. Please be aware that CBT often involves reading and homework tasks, such as practising and completing skills between sessions, which are normally 50 minutes in duration.
Person-centred or humanistic therapy
One major difference between humanistic counsellors and other therapists is that they refer to those in therapy as 'clients', not 'patients'. This is because they see the therapist and client as equal partners rather than as an expert treating a patient.
Unlike other therapies the client is responsible for improving his or her life, not the therapist. This is a deliberate change from both psychoanalysis and behavioural therapies where the patient is diagnosed and treated by a doctor. Instead, the client consciously and rationally decides for themselves what is wrong and what should be done about it. The therapist is more of a friend or counsellor who listens and encourages on an equal level.
