When to come into therapy

Challenges are a normal part of life, and while we can often face them on our own, we sometimes need someone to help us navigate through life’s difficulties.  Life can be overwhelming and difficult at times. We may think we have to be strong, and that we should be able to deal with our problems alone. We may feel increasingly desperate with what life brings us, until our day to day functioning begins to suffer, and we become aware that our health, sleeping patterns, family relationships and our work performance are not at their best. When our quality of life begins to suffer, this is a good time to seek a psychologist to talk through our difficulties, and to get a fresh perspective on the issues that seem so overwhelming

Psychotherapy can assist with a variety of difficulties, ranging from emotional difficulties to relationship problems and adjustment to life transitions such as marriage or the birth of a new baby. Unresolved emotional issues can lead to further problems by impacting on our work, health and relationships.

People come to psychotherapy for many reasons – some are unable to cope with the stressors they face, while others may be struggling to make important life decisions. It is a misconception that therapy is only for people who have psychiatric illnesses. Sometimes in life we feel stuck or reach a crossroad and experience difficulty in deciding which way to proceed. In such cases it is helpful to speak to a professional who can assist you to reach your life goals and achieve a greater sense of well-being.

Feedback from my clients

It was a very helpful and rich learning experience – of getting to know the real “me” and the rationale behind my actions and thoughts. Cornelia makes one feel very comfortable and also allows you to express all your true emotions.   I am more conscious of my own thoughts, needs, feelings and actions. I provide advice and support to friends – and can also now refer them to Cornelia should the need arise… I am more at ease with myself, my life and with the life stage I am at… I am more relaxed.
