Introduction
 

Choosing a therapist as well as the type of counselling and psychotherapy can be a task in itself. It is widely recognised that the most effective outcomes are based on the quality of relationship between client and counsellor, so it is important for you to arrive at your decision with this in mind.

There are many misconceptions about who goes and at what point to seek help of a counsellor or psychotherapist. There may be the sense that a problem is not that bad or as extreme as perhaps others may face. Or that having some kind of mental health or emotional crisis is a prerequisite for seeing a therapist. Often we can become adept at managing to live with things in life we believe we cannot change, becoming stuck and cut off from what is important to us.

The motivation to see a professionally trained therapist is very individual – at times of great distress, maybe a wish to understand negative patterns in your life or to explore a particular dilemma. It may, however, be difficult to simply identify a particular issue, as often all areas of life can be affected. The process of counselling is to try and make sense of your experience and to help you find the tools to live more meaningfully.
