Why you should try counselling

Hey readers,

As a person with mental problems, I know the importance of therapy. I have done counselling before. I have found it very beneficial to speak to someone confidentially that I have no emotional connection with.

Why you should consider counselling?

Firstly, it is confidential and as they are professional then they are not emotionally attached to you, making it much easier to be open without fear of judgement.

Knowing that a counseller is experienced in mental health, means that they understand how the mind works enabling you to feel that you are not being a fool but being heard.

It allows that time you have a counsellor to be your space to open up knowing that it is a safe place where you can open up. It gives you that time once a week to focus on yourself uninterrupted therapy allows you to be, you don’t always have to talk but being present can do wonders for your mental health.

Therapy is great if you are feeling alone and isolated, it allows you to talk and feel that actually, you are not alone. There are loads of people who go to therapy and have helped them to deal with the emotional baggage that is holding you back.

Counselling over time gives you back the control to deal with your mental health which will then have a positive impact on your overall life such as sleeping and relationships with other.

Going to a therapist and talking through your concerns and worries can give you better insight into understanding the way you behave. It can be a chance to spot the negative cycles of behaviour and work towards changing the bad habits into positive responses or actions.

Also, sometimes if it can be hard to talk to your partner and having a person who is neutral can help. Couple counselling can be beneficial to help understand each other’s point, I have in the past found it beneficial for me and my husband gave us time to understand one another with the support there.

  1. Hi, even though I’ve not had councilling myself I have had found that chatting with the councillors after my son had a session very helpful. It was almost like having my own session. I wouldn’t hesitate to have councilling if I felt it would be beneficial and as Tubbs pointed out it has to be with the right person.

  2. Counselling helped me hugely in my early twenties. I tried a counsellor later in life but it did not go as well. I think it is very much about finding the right counsellor for you and then it can be so powerful. Great that you wrote this as will encourage folks to get help #FabFridayPost

  3. I completely agree. I have had 3 lots of counselling and each time it was very beneficial. I think if is something everyone should do as we all have issues to talk about and a stranger listening is so freeing. #PoCoLo
