There are many reasons why you may want to see a psychotherapist. You may be faced with a crisis in your life or struggling with a personal issue and your usual ways of coping aren't working.
It can be isolating and painful trying to cope with distressing times on your own. Family and friends can only help so much. A psychotherapist can give you the caring, non-judgmental support you need to make positive changes in your life.
Or you might be seeking couples counselling because you and your life partner have drifted apart, find yourselves arguing a lot or generally feel unhappy in your relationship. You may be in crisis due to infidelity, financial stress or significant differences in priorities and values. Counselling can help you understand the issues you are facing and develop new ways of communicating so that you can work as a team to restore and deepen the connection between you.
And then the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
