Counselling and psychotherapy is a unique experience. A safe, confidential space, removed from ordinary life, that is all about you, the client. Having an opportunity to be seen and heard in this way can be extremely helpful.
Research consistently shows that therapy can be successful and helpful. One of the biggest factors in the effectiveness of the process is the quality of the relationship between the client and counsellor. This is why it is crucial to find someone you connect with. Do you feel safe with them, listened to and cared for?
