It is usual for you to start feeling better than when you arrived within the first session. Even though you may feel frightened, confused and sad, I would like to reassure you, I’m supporting you every step of the way. Working in a person-centred way enables you to direct and lead in the session, while being supported throughout. Using Person-centred therapy and incorporating other modalities is proven to be one of the best way to support people who have been bereaved or have a life-limiting illness.
Working in this way ensures you are able to disclose what you want when you are ready, at your own pace. By pulling a vast array of theoretical modalities and including practical and effective tools you will be held and supported by a non-judgemental and empathetic counsellor, me.
How it may feel before you attended for a counselling session:
- ‘Frightened of the unknown’
- Questions such as ‘What will the counsellor think of me if I say’?…
- ‘How can I say how I feel when I don’t even know myself’?
- ‘How can talking about it help, it’s so painful’?
- ‘I don’t want to cry, what if I can’t stop the tears’?
- ‘I feel I am going mad’!
Let me put you at ease, you have taken the first step in getting the support you need. I understand this may have been very difficult for you. ‘Even strong people need a little support at times’ and this is OKAY. I’m here to support you, ‘Helping you to discover your way Forward’.
As well as using person-centred therapy the session may include some other theoretical modalities including cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) to help with problematic thought patterns identified, such as negative automatic thoughts, (NAT’s) and creative therapy making cards, writing letters etc, (with your permission).
