Relationships as a resource for recovery

therapy  together :
Taking your First Step Towards Recovery

When daily life has become emotionally challenging or confusing for any reason, it is usually our relationships that can help or hinder a way forward

To explore and develop a shared understanding of the challenge you face is often a helpful place to start. Relational and/or emotional distress &/or mental illness symptoms are best understood within the contexts they develop and present, and how this informs your experiences and choices. Often, we think that coping silently alone and not upsetting our loved ones is the best way to protect them and perhaps a way to manage our own emotions. However, the opposite can often be true. Coming to therapy together, with the people that love and care for each other the most is often a good first step to recovery and a happier future. Coming to therapy together alone, with relationships in mind, held in meaningful conversations can also create opportunities for change.

    Is it them or us?

    I have long disliked the general divisive language around mental health. Although improvements are developing, I still find there is an implied message that there is a ‘them and us’ narrative informing how…
