Myths about Psychotherapy and Counselling

Psychotherapy/counselling are only for those in crisis 
 
Talking therapies are no longer considered only for those in immediate psychological distress, as ongoing support can be beneficial to everyone.  Whether you are going through a specific crisis, need support from an outsider, or simply want to explore the ways in which you can meet your full potential, psychotherapy and counselling may be able to help.

How much money would you spend each year on things that help you feel good about your life superficially; cars, clothes, eating out, holidays, haircuts, technology, coffees and gifts?  When we compare the cost of psychotherapy, it comes to roughly the same as eating out once a week.
