As a counsellor, I have seen many people recover from mental illness. Here are four things which, in my experience, help any person’s recovery.
Category: Counselling and therapy
Reasons and excuses: finding understanding
We can grow up silent and bottled up, or verbose and self-defensive. Counselling can help us to find more moderate ways to communicate and behave.
Getting on with a therapist
How do we choose a therapist? And how do we know when therapy is going well?
Little voice and big voice: responding to denied or unfamiliar feelings
Through therapy, we can listen to inner feelings that have been neglected for years.
Helping friends and clients who are ‘stuck’
How can we help a person who feels stuck in life? We may feel helpless, but we can build trust, welcome the problem, and provide a safe space to explore solutions.
We can grow up with certain emotions trapped inside us. This tension can cause anxiety and depression. Therapy can help.
