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.

For more information see "How Therapy Works" in the main menu.

"Debbie was great to speak to and not only listened but gave some very constructive input during my meetings with her. I found this especially helpful as I had been living under circumstances for so long that they had become ‘normalised’ to me, but Debbie affirmed that this situation was definitely not normal. This helped me see more clearly and to be more decisive about myself and my life. Thank you, I would strongly recommend."

"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."

"Philip is able to create a relaxing environment and was able to empathise very quickly. Philip has an ability to identify the root cause quickly and relate back to me in an easy to understand style. Philip was able to challenge me to think differently about the issues that I was facing which has had a profound benefit both in my private and professional life. I would use Philip again."
