  • You are strong and you are brave and you are taking that first step to a better understanding of who you are and how you live your life

There are times in all our lives when we could do with a helping hand. So why is asking for help sometimes such a hard thing to do?

When I first meet a client, they are often very nervous and uncertain about whether they should be coming for counselling at all. They may be worried that their ‘troubles’ are not ‘big’ enough and that they should just ‘Pull themselves together’ or as one of my long-term clients would phrase it ‘I just need to have a word with myself’. They fear that because they have sought out counselling that this means that they are somehow weak or broken. To this I always reply

“I find that it takes a great amount of strength to recognise that there is something in our life that is causing us pain or dis-comfort. Something that seems too big for us to ‘get our heads around’. Something that cannot be ‘fixed’ by a stiff upper lip and a ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ attitude. Whether this is to do with something that has happen in our past, which is still affecting our day to day lives, or something wholly in the present, awareness that this is something we are no longer willing to allow to control our lives means that we have decided to take that step to a better understanding of ourselves and that is a brave move to make”.

I have yet to meet a weak client. What I have met is a wide variety of people that for various reasons have decided to take control of their futures. That is not to say that the process of therapy is not sometimes difficult. If it were easy we wouldn’t have any problems in the first place.

Taking the first step into counselling does not need to be scary.

You’re not weak, or broken, or useless, or crazy.

You may be tired, or run-down, or self-doubtful or confused. But you are strong and you are brave and you are taking that first step to a better understanding of who you are.
