More information

Everybody is different and every therapist is different so there are many different possible experiences during therapy. However there are a number of stages that you may go through.

Therapy is a positive and pro-active step, but at first you may feel nervous or shy, particularly if you have never done anything like this before.

You will be talking about things that are difficult. It may be the first time you have ever really talked about them so there's no denying that at times it will be hard. But because you are doing this in therapy you are not on your own, your therapist is there to help you and guide you. It's not uncommon to feel worse in the initial stages. You shouldn't feel put off by this. It means that something meaningful is happening, that the issues you are talking through are real and you are not avoiding the real problem. Stay with it, you will start to see a difference.

As time progresses you may start to experience a general shift in the way you think, feel or behave. Or, you may have 'breakthrough moments'. At those times something will suddenly make sense to you in a way it didn't before, or you will clearly see a way forward through a particular situation. The benefits of therapy will begin to take effect - you may see your symptoms start to decrease, you may begin to accept a difficult situation or you may begin to understand your own behaviour better and begin to be able to manage it positively. Overall you should be moving to a position where the issue that prompted you to seek therapy in the first place no longer dominates you.

"Michael has helped me to think about what is important to me. Over a short period of time, he has helped me to cope better with modern day living. He doesn't have a magic wand, but he has a charm and general way of making you feel relaxed in his company. I went to see him, as a last resort. The National Health Service hasn't really helped me with my problems. I never ever thought, I would ever need a person like Michael's help to make me feel better about myself."

"I didn't really believe that therapy was going to help me, having tried a number of times with other therapists over the years I had become convinced that it would not work for me. I got to a place of desperation and found again that the advice from the Dr was to talk to someone. I signed up to a first session with Karen convinced that I would have nothing to say and hate every moment. But I was wrong, it was the total opposite. I totally underestimated the power of a TrueType great therapist. Karen is helping me to turn my life around, and I think that is the really important thing; she helps ME to do it, she is not doing it for me. I think Karen might be one of the most important people I meet in my life and already I feel so grateful for the time we have worked together. Everyone would benefit from a Karen in their lives. We started with TA to help me manage my everyday stuff and now moving into counselling to help me deal with a bereavement."
