Don’t just feel better – be better.
Billy Smith Therapy – Here to Help
Therapy can be an effective treatment for a host of mental and emotional problems. Simply talking about your thoughts and feelings with a supportive person can often make you feel better. It can be very healing, in and of itself, to voice your worries or talk about something that’s weighing on your mind.
“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”
– Carl Rogers
Individual counselling is helpful for a variety of reasons, such as increasing an individual’s self-awareness, encouraging self-exploration, identifying boundaries, enhancing communication skills and improving the use of healthy coping skills. The benefits will lead to a shift in behaviour for the individual, which often decrease symptoms of mental health issues.
Counselling is the most common form of talking therapy. It can help young people deal with issues and events and the effects they are having on their wellbeing. Counselling could be recommended for young people who are basically healthy but who are struggling with a mental health disorder such as depression or eating disorders. It can address problems with anxiety, bereavement, bullying, anger, relationships, low self-esteem, and self-harm.
