Why People Seek Counselling In London People may seek counselling & psychotherapy for a variety of reasons. We may want to deal with a specific issue, get to know ourself more, be less confused, make sense of something, have peace of mind, seek change, come to terms with an aspect of ourself, seek deeper meaning, life purpose. The therapy supports us in this process and simply being heard.
People seek counselling in London for various reasons to take their time, gather our thoughts, say what's on our mind, find out what's going on, piece some things together, make sense of things, maybe offload, explore, express our feelings, utilising it as a sounding board, needing some sort of external reality check and the therapy can be a space to explore how we think, clarify strengthen our thoughts, beliefs. Certain things may just not sit right for us. We may be in a challenging period of our life, going through a difficult time, crisis, have a current problem, preoccupation or come across some stumbling blocks, which don't seem to go away or continue to consume us. We may no longer want to push away things that we don't want to think about and have had enough. We may experience a suffering inside, which needs to be talked about, shared. We may want to reconcile things, make some decisions. We may be in the grip of powerful feelings or thoughts, unsettled or uncomfortable. We may have let some things slide. We may have tried things, want to move on, yet end up back in a similar place. Torn by a dilemma where we struggle to choose, make a decision, we may have a familiar problem that is beginning to hold us back or weigh us down, which can't be unburdened, patched up or where "getting on with it" no longer works. Functioning well on the surface, we may fit in, yet not feel part of things or fully involved, be unhappy, disconnected, alienated or lonely inside, discontented or unfulfilled. Troubled, things may have been gnawing away at us for long enough, and can no longer be brushed under the carpet. Going through the motions, something might be missing or stirring and we may struggle to put our finger on what it is. Inside it may be as if we are living half a life, longing or yearning for something. We may be seeking guidance, different perspectives or structures - ones which work for us in life, alongside a stronger sense of inner safety.
