Many of us experience times in our lives when we feel under pressure and find it hard to cope, this could be because of past issues, relationship difficulties, grief or from finding it hard to deal with everyday life.

Talking therapies such as counselling are useful in helping people come to terms with many problems they are facing, with an ultimate aim of overcoming them. They are based on an interpersonal relationship between the client and the counsellor or therapist which helps them develop a better understanding about themselves and then solve their problems.

What are Talking Therapies?

Talking Therapies is not about the counsellor or therapist solving problems for you, or about them giving advice.

It is a process of talking about and working through your personal problems with a counsellor or therapist. The counsellor or therapist uses techniques to help you to address your problems by helping you to clarify the issues, explore options, develop strategies and increase self-awareness

The MhIST talk therapy service can be accessed via 1point upon request.
