There are many different experiences and events that occur during our lives. Sometimes these events can result in harmful emotions or behaviours, such as anxiety, depression, or addiction. Sometimes there is a cause that we are aware of, for example a traumatic event, or possibly a series of traumatic experiences, such as sustained abuse. Sometimes we may not be aware of a specific event or experience that has caused our harmful emotions or behaviours, but we become aware that life’s day to day problems are becoming overwhelming and difficult to cope with.
Talking therapies provide a safe environment within which we can explore why we are feeling these harmful emotions and discuss problems that we experience. Through talking and exploration of ourselves we can become increasingly self-aware and lessen the impact that our life experiences have on us and become increasingly able to cope with the issues that life throws at us, rather than becoming overwhelmed by them.
