About Talking Therapies
Many people use Talking Therapy (or Counselling) as a solution for a crisis, but it’s helpful to see a professional for regular, everyday issues too. Research shows that talking to a therapist can positively rewire the brain over time. Experts also say the practice can be transformative even if you don’t have a mental health condition. Therapists can help you work through acute life stressors, help you cope with major life changes, or just offer solutions for a calmer state of mind.
Talking Therapies can help you work out how to deal with negative thoughts, feelings and habits and make positive changes. They can help people who are feeling distressed by difficult events in their lives, as well as people who want to explore a sense of meaning and purpose in life. Talking Therapies are called a confusing mix of names, but behind every technical term is a way of working with people that suits them and can help.
