Where and how do I start that is the question in writing a blog asks a Therapist in East London?
Thus far its been a case of only republished articles by other people from newspapers etc on subjects which interest me and but perhaps high time to start writing my own stuff!
I guess its all about feeling that I had learned enough to begin to draw on my experience and write something hopefully worthwhile. Whether or not I have is for anyone who stumbles across the posts to follow and judge for themselves!
A lot has happened in the time I have been practising for any therapist in east london. Firstly during initial two years I couldn’t persuade anyone to come to my practice and hire me!. At first I put that down to my advertising, but I guess that in East London at the time a private therapist wasn’t what people were looking for or perhaps afford.
All that began to change I think when the Olympics arrived in Stratford (very close to me) and the whole area began to change and finally people who saw the benefit of counselling began to move in. Since that time my practice as a therapist in east london has grown and grown and my confidence has grown with it I hope!
A little about my training.
Many experts believe that for a number of people seeking counselling and therapy, the “talking cure” isn’t enough and whilst talking about things in your past that cause pain and may have caused you to become stuck is helpful in allowing you to cope and relieving some of the stress caused by this incident
EMDR works in a very focussed way help fully process the original event so that you can leave it behind you permanently and begin to look forward to a future free from the painful symptoms of the trauma.
My next article is likely to be on work related issues. It seems that most of my clients are using therapy to process and discuss work related issues. It seems that in these competitive times that the workplace has changed. Whilst younger people seem to take this in their stride (its the only thing they know) this seems to have a greater impact on older workers who are having to adjust to the changes in the culture, work practices and most of all the expectations of their employer! Most on this in my next post
