Over the years one of the questions I often get asked is does it need to be a crisis before you ask for help and enter therapy. The answer really lies with the individual client, most people know that they have managed as much as they can alone and need someone to work with to help them find the next steps on their journey.
I have had clients who have been approaching great life changes such as retirement and want someone outside of their immediate circle of family and friends, to discuss where they were in their lives and their hopes and dreams for their future. Others have wanted to talk about their own development and what they feel they need to do to make some changes to help them reach their full potential.
One of my previous clients wanted to set up her own business and felt restricted by the responses she had from others. ” I knew that my instincts were right, but I didn’t have anywhere to go to discuss options, therapy provided me with a non judgemental place to do that”.
So as we come to the end of a difficult year and look forward to a brighter future, why not consider some sessions of therapy to explore your hope and dreams, it could make all the difference.
