Talking about painful experiences is often the first step towards moving on from them but I will never make you talk about anything you don’t want to. You will always be in control during your sessions. This means you get to choose what areas of your life to talk about and what not to.
If you feel like you do need to talk about traumatic events in your life my job is to guide you through a safe and therapeutic way to do this. This is likely to require a patient, gentle approach in which we slowly build up to you talking about traumatic experiences.
The aim, always, is to re-process the experiences you’ve had so you can move on.
