A search for understanding yourself in the world may begin with a thought or feeling that it’s time to find support, to have someone to speak to. Working with a psychotherapist is a confidential place of your own, a point of contact with another human being, trained and informed, who can hold a space for you to ask the most difficult questions. This relationship is built upon trust and honesty, leading to deeper levels of awareness. Coming to an understanding of yourself takes time, commitment, and emotional safety that the right psychotherapist can provide for you, allowing what previously was unconscious or not seen to become conscious.
The work of being in therapy can be emotionally difficult. After all, it is “therapy”, and getting started can feel awkward and strange. But it is well worth it, as many come to see their therapist as a person who is there for them, someone who will be honest with them, and have their best interests at heart.
A good therapeutic alliance supports your ability to navigate through life.
