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 your marriage is in crisis or you feel "stuck" as a couple.
Through counselling, you can begin to recognize where your issues began and how they developed. You can also learn skills that can break the frustrating patterns you and your partner feel stuck in. By communicating in new ways, you can 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.
