Have you been feeling down, confused, or anxious? Do you feel unsure about your goals? Or, are you searching for a new pathway to personal development?
Life can sometimes present us with the sense that we’re at a crossroads. We might be prompted to reflect on our life after a particular challenge, or we might just be feeling a general sense that we’d like a greater level of wellbeing.
For many people, psychotherapy can assist them with these and other concerns. Psychotherapy can involve many different approaches, tied together by a focus on our thoughts and feelings. Often, psychotherapy helps people to make changes in their lives and develop new insights about their past and present selves.
At Sharman’s Therapy Centre, we use a few different kinds of psychotherapy, including The Journey Process, Gestalt Therapy and People Play. We might recommend a particular approach to you, or you can select your preferred approach.
Psychotherapy can help people to understand more about their motivations, beliefs and attitudes. This can be useful at many points in life. For example, we have seen clients who have sought help with trauma, stress management, health issues, and personal development.
Before your first therapy session, you might be wondering what to expect. Your counselling professional is here to listen. So, we will spend time discussing your story, your concerns, and your goals.
As your psychotherapy progresses, we will work towards the gift of awareness, with a goal of helping you to develop tools to change whatever is holding you back. When we become aware of the patterns of behaviour that underpin our concerns, we are in a better place to break free of these behaviours and reach our potential.
We understand that life can present many challenges. We can all experience these challenges in different ways, and it’s normal to sometimes feel that you need support from a kind ear. Our counsellors aim to step into your shoes, connecting with your experience in an authentic way.
At every point, you’ll experience the safe, gentle guidance of an experienced practitioner. At Sharman’s Therapy Centre, we are compassionate and empathetic in our approach. In this supportive relationship, you can explore your life and goals without judgement. Over time, many people find that this psychotherapy process helps them to find a place of peace and forgiveness, accepting themselves and connecting with a sense of meaning.
Many concerns can keep us on from savouring the moment-to-moment cycle of experience. Our counselling techniques are designed to bring us back into the moment, fostering a sense of wholeness and fulfilment.
We understand that choosing a counsellor is a very personal choice. If you’d like to know more about psychotherapy at our Gold Coast counselling centre, you can read our Therapy pages. You’re welcome to contact us if you have any questions.
