WHAT IS THERAPY AND HOW CAN IT BENEFIT YOU
Therapy is a space that is private and confidential where you can unpack all the aspects in your life where you are struggling or feel stuck.
One of the benefits of having your own therapy is that it often allows you to get a glimpse into why you find yourself in similar sorts of problems or dysfunctional patterns .
WHAT TYPE OF THINGS CAN I DISCUSS IN THERAPY?
People seek counselling/therapy services for all different types of reasons. There is no such thing as a “right” or “wrong” issue that can be discussed in therapy.
Therapy can be a space to hold and process your sorrow, pain and rage. Equally, it can hold your joy, love and peacefulness. All parts of you are allowed to be present and voiced. It allows for introspection and is a platform for insight and self-awareness.
THERAPY IS AN INVESTMENT IN SELF-GROWTH.
Many of us live very busy lives and have to juggle many responsibilities. Within the confines of day to day living, things can sometimes feel overwhelming or meaningless. Therapy gives us a space in the mist of all life’s pressures to reconnect with ourselves and allow ourselves to think and reflect. Investing in therapy or counselling is an investment in self-growth and a brave venture for those who wish to know themselves.
TYPE OF PSYCHOTHERAPY USED
Sharoni Tsarafi uses an interpersonal psychotherapy model which values the therapeutic alliance as a powerful means of transforming the important relationships in our lives and how we perceive ourselves.

WHEN IS A GOOD TIME TO START A THERAPY PROCESS?
One of the misconceptions about therapy is that you only need sessions if you are unwell or if something is very wrong. Although therapy is very helpful during times of crisis, therapy is also very useful to explore our everyday problems to navigate through the complexities of human experience.
SOME OF THE MAIN GOALS OF THERAPY
Therapy fosters a greater sense of freedom in our lives. With this, we are better able to express ourselves confidently, find fulfilling work and deepen our ability to connect and love.
In order for therapy to be beneficial all you need to do is to bring yourself and be open to exploring all aspects of your life.
