Looking for Counselling in Colchester? What Kind of Help Best Suits You?
Most of all, it doesn’t have to be a long drawn out process, because just a few brief visits are often enough to help you feel better. Counselling can be effective for both individuals to explore their personal difficulties, and also for couples to explore their relationship, and how it is and isn’t working.
Sometimes you need more than a listening ear, because maybe you’ve spoken about your problem, and you still dont seem to be getting anywhere. Therefore, you may well need a more in-depth focussed approach that goes a little deeper than counselling, and also helps you get more insight into what you’re struggling with.
Together we can find the right therapeutic approach to move your understanding to a deeper level, and help you make the changes you need. The most important thing is to find what best works for you, and work with that to create long lasting change that empowers you to take control of your life.
CBT offers you a focussed and goal oriented solution, where we examine your thoughts and behaviours, and begin to explore what alternatives we can help you begin to adopt, and hence influence your thinking.
Another approach commonly used with anxiety and depression, CBT is very ‘thought’ based, where your automatic thought cycles are explored, and as a result we can create a shift in your behaviour, so that you begin to operate in a more harmonious way, and are able to see things differently. You might need a more focused approach such as EMDR, which we can help you with.

Is stress making you feel tense, or on-edge? Stress can feel like it’s taking over when we feel stretched beyond what is (or feels) natural to us, or what we can cope with. It is seen as a force coming from outside of us. ‘If only they hadn’t done that, or asked me to...
