Why Choose Blue Sky?
Therapy is useful at times of crisis or to nurture and restore an individual following trauma. People attend therapy for a variety of reasons including anxiety, stress, anger, adultery – the list is literally endless because no two people react in the same way to the same life event.
It is not only when something goes wrong or for negative reasons that people attend therapy – often it may be to find out why we think the way we do or find out more about why we react in a certain way.
Therapy is empowering because it helps people become more positive and to feel better about themselves. Therapy is about gaining insight and learning ways in which to improve thinking and behaviour.
Therapy is about you, the person sitting with me in the therapy room. It is completely individual which is why I adapt my approach to best suit each person. Therapy is not simply meeting with me for an hour once per week – it is more than that – it is about acceptance, progress, forgiveness and change.
It is important to reflect on your goals prior to and while you are attending therapy. To help with this, I offer exercises for completion or suggest articles to read.
Therapy is a specific time when you are heard, acknowledged and respected. Therapy provides you with an opportunity to learn how to manage or accept aspects of your life which, up to now, may have controlled or bothered you.
Therapy is an opportunity for you to become the best person you can be. That might sound strange or clichéd but, think about it, if you are not waking in the morning feeling happy to be you then what changes need to take place?
Do you want to be happy and content? Do you want to figure out or put to rest what has been holding you back from achieving your full potential? What are your goals for your future? Would it help you to chat through your thoughts with a qualified professional therapist in a confidential environment?
Therapy provides an alternate perspective and a fresh way of looking at your life – in fact, starting therapy can be the beginning of something both rewarding and exciting.
On a personal note, like most human beings, I know what it is like to suffer emotional pain and despair, to feel like it would never end and to come out the other side feeling good about myself. Looking at yourself, your life and doing what you can to get yourself to a better place can be a daunting, even a terrifying thought, but it is a journey worth taking. From a professional point of view, it gives me great joy and fulfilment to provide a space that gives my clients time to grow into the person that they long to be.
