How Psychotherapy Can Help

Psychotherapy is about helping people get unstuck. People are often stuck because they see only the problem. It is like standing right up against a tree, they see only the tree (i.e. the problem). Counselling helps them step back and see the whole forest (both the problem but also the good stuff that are happening in their lives). When they do that, they are no longer as stuck. The problem is still there but it does not seem as big as before. The clients can also draw on the resources of the whole forest to deal with the problem. Good therapists act as a sounding board to reflect back to clients to normalize and to validate their feelings. In a non-judgemental way, counsellor brings clarity to an issue so that the clients can see things more clearly and make better decisions. When people make good decisions, they usually move on better with their lives.
