Why do people come for counselling and psychotherapy?

Hitting a crisis point in your life can be scary. The idea of therapy can be a daunting one, often surrounded by the mystery of what to expect.

You might see a therapist for a variety of reasons. You may be facing a life changing event that has created shock and grief. You may be experiencing feelings of depression, isolation, low self-esteem and confidence or suffering from feelings of anxiety without understanding why. There may be events from your past that are preventing you from living your life in the way you would like to.

Equally, you may be experiencing a lack of direction, feelings of boredom or of being trapped. A significant relationship may be proving difficult for you to manage healthily. You may be aware of self-destructive patterns occurring in your life which are causing you, or those around you, pain.

Extreme feelings such as anger, stress, shame, guilt, sadness or loneliness may also be affecting your daily life, keeping you stuck in an uncomfortable place.

Once you have taken the brave step to contact a therapist and have decided to seek help, it is usual to feel nervous. To begin with it might be difficult to talk about the issues that have brought you to the therapist.

Tanya Taylor-Wright is a highly experienced therapist, having commenced her training back in 2002 and with over 15 years of experience in working with individuals on a one-to-one therapeutic basis. You are invited to begin with an initial consultation appointment, where you can discuss the reasons that bring you to therapy at this time and, if you are able, what you might be hoping to get out of the therapy process. Tanya works in an integrative way which means the sessions are non-prescriptive, and more tailored to your individual needs at this particular time in your life.

You can contact Tanya by calling 07940 571207 or emailing tanya@tanyawright.com
