WHAT IS THERAPY LIKE?
It's normal to feel a little worried about talking to someone or about getting upset. We will do our absolute best to help you with this and support you in your sessions. We see a lot of feelings at Pause so we understand 😊.
Also, we think that although it can sometimes be hard work, it is often not harder than coping with something difficult alone.
Most psychotherapy involves thinking, feeling, learning new things and sometimes doing new things. You may also do some thinking or "homework" in between sessions.
In a weekly, 50 minute sessions, you will talk about and work on the goals in your plan and about your hopes, expectations and timescale as part of this.
If you have EMDR sessions, you will answer some questions about your experience and follow prompts given by your therapist. You may also do hand movements and/or eye movements but we will teach you this and do them with you.
The aim is to help you feel safe and accepted just as you are so you can do this as comfortably as possible.
