Vulnerability is scary. It has to be, or it ceases to be vulnerability. To dare to cast your fears aside in the service of wholehearted living is no easy task, and to do that in the presence of another soul, even more so.
Therapy is a space created to hold your fears and your hopes, your disappointments and your dreams. It is also a place of exploration and of profound healing. A skilled counsellor can help you visit the museum in your mind, unpack all the boxes you’ve hidden in every corner of the building and safely explore their contents; for the more you look at the artefacts, the less power they have over you.
Therapy is for Everyone
Many people think that their life experience doesn’t warrant therapy, but mental wellbeing is not defined by an absence of adversity. We all have good days and we all have bad days and we all have a threshold at which we find we can no longer cope with the things that are presenting themselves in our lives.
Mental health issues do not just happen in extraordinary circumstances, the majority of them happen in very ordinary spaces, and over a prolonged period of time. This is the journey of life and it is in a state of constant motion.
Therapy promotes an environment that invites growth, exploration, and understanding of what it is to be human.
It would be my privilege to join you and to support you on your travels.
Does the thought of therapy scare you?
