What is Therapy?
Therapy offers a safe, supportive and confidential space to explore things that may be troubling you and affecting your life and relationships; when more help is needed than friends or family can offer. You may be going through a crisis or have become aware of longstanding difficulties that need addressing.
Therapy can help you develop more effective ways of dealing with stressful or painful times, that might have arisen recently or that you may have been living with for a long time. Therapy can effect lasting change, such as enabling stressful or painful times to feel less overwhelming and more manageable.
Therapy can help if, for instance, you are:
- Experiencing emotional difficulties, such as depression, anxiety, eating problems or suicidal feelings.
- Struggling with a loss, such as bereavement, divorce, redundancy, illness or disability.
- Finding relationships difficult.
- Finding life meaningless or out of control.
- Stuck in unhelpful patterns of behaviour that feel hard to change.
- Experiencing difficulties with faith or spirituality.
Cornerstone members offer time-limited and open-ended therapy to individuals. Some members offer group or couple therapy.
If you would like to see if therapy is right for you, an initial consultation with your chosen therapist can help explore your needs and the best way to meet them. You will arrange with your therapist the times, fees and frequency of sessions.
