We all have difficulties from time to time and sometimes these difficulties can seem insurmountable. Talking to people can help, but sometimes it is difficult to talk to the people closest to you.
If the difficulties begin to affect everyday life and it seems difficult to find a way forward, it may help to talk things through with a Clinical Psychologist or Psychotherapist.
At High View we offer “talking therapy” because we believe that the best way to deal with psychological problems is to talk about them with someone else in order to begin to understand how, and why, the problems have arisen and what can be done about them.
Talking therapies involve having a conversation with a therapist who is trained to listen attentively and to help you find your own answers, without judging you.
This can involve a range of things including helping you to find the root causes of your problems and ways to deal with these, to change your behaviour or negative thoughts or simply to support you. Talking therapies do not offer “magic solutions”. They can be hard work and progress can be slow or painful. It may not be the right time for you to talk, or talking about things may make you feel worse to begin with before things improve.
