When Do People See a Therapist? You don't have to have a mental illness!

There's a few misconceptions going around about seeing a therapist. 

Of course we can help with depression and anxiety and other mental health problems but we can also help and support you when you are going through a difficult time at work. Work and career are an important part of your identity, you will have invested a lot of time and energy in getting where you are and then things start to change at work, restructuring, new management teams, contractual changes, shift in working patterns or location to name but a few! Suddenly you find the ground has shifted under your feet, major changes are happening and you feel anxious, unhappy and your sense of stability has gone. You start to doubt yourself and start looking to change your job or career. This maybe the time to start to think about getting support, therapists are trained to help you look at your choices and options and help you to adapt to the change in your working life.

Do you have difficulty setting and achieving goals?
Do you need to meet targets and outcomes at work? Is this difficult and you don't know where to start or have you tried unsuccessfully to get stuff done and keep stalling, procrastinating or unable to meet deadlines? Therapy can help you to start to look at what's been holding you back. This can be through a lack of confidence, self-esteem and self-worth and I can work with you to build your confidence and how you feel about yourself to begin to set and then achieve those goals.

Do you want a more positive relationship with yourself and others?
I see clients who seem to go from one unsuccessful relationship to another and lose confidence in themselves and other people. Sometimes they notice a pattern in what happens when they are in relationship with a partner, everything seems to go well initially then once the first flush of romance passes they start to notice they are not so compatible and the same issues rear their heads time after time. Why does this keep happening to me? I hear this often, and as a therapist I can begin to look at your relationships and start to support you to set boundaries and improve your communication, both with yourself and the people close to you.
