Counselling in Braintree
Independent Therapy Solutions exists to provide a range of high quality counselling in Braintree to people experiencing emotional, psychological or behavioural difficulties to facilitate change and well being.
We work with a wide range of people experiencing difficult life / emotional experiences that quite often involve feeling ‘out of control’. What they all have in common is they have all decided to take back control and make a change
Releasing the unique potential of the individual through non–judgemental, self–empowering support.
Counselling and Psychotherapy is meant to provide you with a space; a place outside your day to day existence, where you can talk, observe, explore, figure things out, all with the help of an empathic and trained listener. Having this space to talk can go a long way towards helping you feel better. The effect of therapy can be profound. Being in therapy can lower your level of stress, it can give you more energy to make changes in your life, and it can increase your ability to cope with things that can't be changed.
I believe that every problem should be approached with an open mind. You might find relief after just one e-mail, or after just a few sessions - and that's great! What I don't believe in is deciding in advance how many sessions you get, as you will find in some types of therapies. I also do not believe in 'fixing' people or 'correcting' your thinking. I try to help you find out what's best for you. I do give advice when I feel that's helpful and I do encourage people to take certain practical steps. But the goal is to help you find yourself, not to tell you what to do. I believe that to some degree we construct our own selves and the goal of therapy is to increase our freedom of choice, rather than to strive towards what someone else has defined as "normal" or "healthy".
Life is a process, with new situations and new difficulties emerging as we go along. Therapy can help us be more open to our own selves and learn how to deal with things differently than we are used to, hopefully - a little better than we had been. Ultimately, the goal is to live the best possible life one can live; to understand and accept yourself, to change your behaviour to that which is more productive and rewarding for you, and to help you move towards becoming the kind of person you want to be.
So if you are the kind of person that values being listened to and understood, if you value being accepted for who you are and how you feel, if you value time to explore and focus on your own life and what matters to you, then give us a call and come and get started…..
And if you haven’t ever experienced any of the above or don’t know if you value them……….…
then give us a call and find out.
