Firstly, individual therapy and counselling sessions are helpful for various reasons.
- increasing an individual’s self-awareness,
- encouraging self-exploration,
- identifying boundaries,
- enhancing communication skills,
- and improving the use of healthy coping skills.
Secondly, the benefits of individual therapy will lead to a shift in behaviour, which often decreases emotional and mental health issues.
In conclusion, we are living in difficult times. For example, pressure to ‘fit in’ is immense. Consequently, the individual is moving further away from being an individual. Our authentic self is sidelined for a given, idealised self. That is to say; we are told what to know and feel. This is often at odds with what we know and feel. Therefore, realign for you and yours.

“Billy has provided an open, non-judgemental, and comfortable space for me to explore why I fall into self-defeating cycles of negative thinking and see that my thoughts and feelings are of value and relevance. He has helped me break down these cycles, so that I have seen for myself how my ways of thinking manifested themselves and what steps I could take to break them. As I said, it can be tough and I did not always like ‘looking at myself’, but Billy’s patience and empathy has encouraged this.”
