What is the aim of therapy?

 

At times in our lives we experience distressing events and feelings that appear to have no end or solution in sight. Sometimes we are clear that our feelings are caused by particular circumstances, such as bereavement, stress at work or a relationship breaking up, but at other times we have no idea what is making us feel as we do. 

 

The aim of counselling and psychotherapy is to help people to clarify their thoughts and feelings so that they can arrive at their own decisions.

“If you do what you’ve always done, you get what you’ve always got.”
