Alison Till - Person Centered Counsellor; Registered Member (MBACP)
It is important to choose a counsellor with whom you feel comfortable, in order to help you make the positive changes you want in your life and improve your emotional well-being.
Talking can usually help to gain clarification and resolution; to help you move on with your life in a positive way.
There are many different reasons for seeing a counsellor and I appreciate how big a step it is for anyone to decide to see one. Some reasons can be:
- Work Stress
Are you experiencing stress at work?
Are deadlines, or an overwhelming workload causing you feelings of anxiety, lacking in motivation, energy and enthusiasm?
Do you feel criticised by others, or feel you are not ‘good enough’?
- Relationship Difficulties
Are relationship issues making you feel alone or isolated?
Are you feeling betrayed?
- Bereavement or Loss
Has a recent loss or bereavement made things seem more difficult to cope with than usual?
Are these feelings of grief stopping you from doing your usual things?
Are you experiencing difficulty getting to, or staying asleep?
Are you putting on a brave face to the world, which is masking your true feelings?
- Personal Development
Are you feeling stuck?
Are there some changes you want to make in your life?
Counselling is a very personal process and sometimes it is necessary to talk about painful feelings or difficult decisions. It may be easier to talk about personal, family, or relationship issues with a person who is not a friend or family member.
Following my own experience of counselling, I fully appreciate how someone may be feeling when coming to see a counsellor. I understand it is not always easy to talk about problems and to express how you are feeling.
