How counselling and psychotherapy can help you
Counselling and psychotherapy can help you cope with difficult experiences and traumas; resolve problems; change unhelpful behaviours & attitudes; and develop resources for a more fulfilling life. If action is called for, then I could support you to explore options and to decide which would best suit your situation and values.
As a result of working through your issues you will often find yourself feeling lighter, clearer, calmer and more connected; with a more compassionate acceptance of your self; knowing your strengths and capabilities, motivations and desires.
"Through working with Katrina, I was able to explore difficult family relationships and arrive at a point where I feel care and compassion for family members who had previously made me feel angry and let down. I have also been more honest and real with my friends and have better friendships as a result.
On a good day, I feel like a different person from the one I was before I first went for the sessions. I know myself better and am much more able to focus on all the great things I have in my life."
Many people think that counselling and psychotherapy is only for working through “heavy” emotions or problems.However it is also a place to experience more fully all that we are capable of; including joy, celebration, playfulness, wonder, awe and serenity.
And even releasing difficult emotions can be accompanied by pleasant feelings, such as relief, excitement, glee and triumph.
"I am more confident. I laugh more. I have started to make better choices about where to put my energy. I am able to make time for things I enjoy, which was something I found difficult before. My own interests would squeeze into the little bits of time that were left when I'd done everything everyone else invited me to or suggested to me, but now I'm happy to turn things down and make my own interests and wellbeing a priority."
