This is a sort of counselling “blog” to give you a flavour of how I work. You can find more information about me by clicking one of the links above. This blog was previously at http://www.pcrc.berkshire-website.co.uk where historical entries from November 2008 can be found.
Sometimes all can seem lost. Counselling can be a difficult and challenging process – it is about change – sometimes about making quite fundamental changes in one’s beliefs – and that can be stressful.
Sometimes couples come to a point where it all seems too difficult, and they think about ending counselling and ending their relationship. Sometimes one of the couple finds that sitting in the counselling room is too difficult, and that they need to leave the session.
In my experience, this “darkest moment” does indeed “come before the dawn”. It seems that when we get to the nub of the problem, it is the most difficult time for one or both of the couple. But often I find that this is the moment of change. It may be that some serious thinking needs to be done, but often I find that this is the moment when the corner is turned, and the couple can start to build again, from the bottom up, and develop a new, and a better, relationship.
