Starting Therapy?

Commencing therapy can represent a significant milestone in one’s life. Particularly if you have never partaken in therapy before, the process can feel daunting and enshrouded in uncertainty. However, I urge you to recognise that seeking therapy has the potential to be life-changing and empowering, a transformative experience.

It is common to feel overwhelmed and unsure when considering therapy. But it is essential to conquer these fears and embrace change if you wish to reap the rewards of therapy. As a therapist, I am well-versed in helping clients overcome barriers and can offer practical options, help and support to reduce the high levels of anxiety that may arise.

The first session is always free.

As a therapist, I believe that the first therapy session should always be free, not a short ten or fifteen minutes but a full session. This is because it is a crucial opportunity for both me the therapist, and the client to assess each other and determine whether they are a good fit.

What’s therapy?

Therapy is a form of psychological support that involves talking with a mental health professional, such as a psychologist, counsellor or psychotherapist to address emotional issues and general mental health concerns, relationship issues, sexual problems or other life challenges.

The goal of therapy is to help individuals understand their thoughts, feelings, and behaviours and develop their self-determination and promote healthier coping strategies. Therapy takes various forms, such as cognitive-behavioural therapy, Gestalt therapy talk therapy, or psychodynamic therapy. Therapy can help individuals address a wide range of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, trauma, and many others.

    • Communication options

The first step

If you would like to book a session the next step will be to arrange an online therapy session, it is good to keep in mind that therapy is not an interrogation, not wanting to talk about difficult personal areas in the first session not a problem. It is perfectly okay to say no to a question, in fact it is an effective way to build your own autonomy.

A good therapist will understand that it can take time to build trust and I always try my best to encourage my clients to be independent and do what is best for them, don’t worry if you feel unable to talk, in some cases it can take time to build up the therapeutic relationship to a point that will allow you to talk about your more challenging personal experiences and difficult emotions or topics.

The therapy session is your space to do what feels right, you can use swear words and cuss if you feel like it and talk about anything that you find important. You can take charge of the session and start topics or talking points any time you want, or just go with the flow.

Time is relative

How fast someone can process thoughts feelings and past experiences in therapy will depend on a number of complicated personal characteristics. Everyone is different and how long therapy takes depends on the person involved and the strength of the therapist client relationship. The old saying is still true, it will take the time it needs.

Staying Anonymous

People having sessions with online therapy services can remain hidden from the therapist by only using voice chat and not using video, and to make it more private use a throw away email address and payment card to hide your identity. For some people staying anonymous is a choice that feels safer and less stressful when talking about personal issues.

You could argue that people that have online therapy while still being anonymous and hidden from view, do not need the same level of trust and can talk more openly about difficult or embarrassing topics knowing that their identity is anonymous.

Why do people need to have therapy?

As a cognizant psychotherapist who provides online therapy sessions, I have seen a wide range of individuals come through my virtual door seeking support and guidance. The reasons why people need therapy are as varied as the individuals themselves, but there are some common themes that arise time and time again.

One of the most common reasons people seek therapy is due to feeling overwhelmed by stress and anxiety. In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy for people to feel as though they’re constantly running on a treadmill, trying to keep up with the demands of work, family, and social commitments. This can lead to feelings of anxiety and stress that can be difficult to manage. Through therapy, individuals can learn coping mechanisms and techniques to manage these feelings, so they can better manage their day-to-day lives.

Another reason why people need therapy is due to a history of trauma. Trauma can take many forms, from physical abuse to emotional neglect, and it can have a lasting impact on an individual’s mental health. Through therapy, individuals can process these traumatic experiences and learn how to deal with the lingering effects.

online therapy services can be beneficial for individuals who are struggling

For some people, therapy is needed due to relationship issues. Whether it’s a marriage in trouble, conflict with family members, or difficulty forming meaningful connections, relationship problems can cause a great deal of stress and anxiety. Through therapy, individuals can work on improving their communication skills, building healthy boundaries, and resolving conflict in a more productive way.

Additionally, therapy can be beneficial for individuals who are struggling with depression and other mental health conditions. Depression can be debilitating, making it difficult for people to enjoy life and engage in activities they once loved. Through therapy, individuals can work on improving their mood, increasing their sense of well-being, and regaining a sense of purpose in life.

So, there are many reasons why people need therapy. Whether it’s due to stress and anxiety, a history of trauma, relationship problems, or mental health conditions, therapy can provide individuals with the support and guidance they need to navigate life’s challenges and improve their overall well-being. As a therapist, I am passionate about helping my clients reach their full potential and lead fulfilling, meaningful lives.

A Therapist is not your friend

A therapist’s primary responsibility is to provide a safe and supportive environment for the client to explore and process their emotions, thoughts, and experiences. This requires a certain level of objectivity, detachment, and boundaries. A therapist must remain neutral and impartial, avoiding forming personal opinions, biases, or judgments. This allows the client to freely express themselves without fear of judgment or rejection.

Moreover, a therapist is bound by a code of ethics and confidentiality, which means that the information disclosed in therapy is kept private and cannot be shared with anyone, including friends and family members. This confidentiality is critical for building trust and fostering a safe therapeutic relationship, and it allows the client to feel secure in discussing sensitive topics.

In contrast, friends tend to share opinions, offer advice, and support based on their personal experiences and relationships. They are often emotionally involved and can develop biases or opinions that may interfere with the client’s healing process. Additionally, friends may not be trained to handle challenging or complex emotions and may not know how to appropriately respond to a friend’s distress.

It is also important to note that therapy is a professional relationship, and as such, it is guided by specific goals and objectives. The therapist’s focus is on helping the client to achieve specific outcomes, such as resolving psychological issues, improving relationships, or managing symptoms. A therapist uses various techniques and interventions to support the client’s progress and does not engage in personal or social activities.

I hope you can understand why your therapist is not going to be your friend, but rather a professional who provides a unique service to help you reach your therapeutic goals. Recognizing and respecting the difference between a therapist and a friend can help you make the most of your therapy sessions and foster a positive therapeutic relationship.
