“Helping people to grow and develop positive outcomes”
Are you finding that it is becoming an increasing struggle to manage how you are feeling? Are you feeling overwhelmed, alone and unsure of what to do or where to turn? Is life a constant battle and challenge? Would you like support and learn strategies to overcome challenges and build on your resilience?
Sunflower Cognitive Therapies can help, our goal is to help people to grow and develop positive outcomes, one step at a time.
We provide clients with a safe and confidential environment where together as a team, the presenting problems can start to be explored. The role of the therapist is to make the client feel at ease, providing a safe and containing environment so that the client is then ready to explore any challenges that maybe preventing them from moving on in their live.
What do we mean by challenges?
There are many situations that we have to face that we might deem to be a challenge. Having to take a test, starting a new job, moving house, meeting work deadlines, loss of a loved one/friend, phobia or fear, parenting etc.
Some situations we can overcome without any problem where as other situations, no matter how many times we might be faced with the same situation, the harder and more challenging it becomes.
When we struggle to make sense of what is happening, this can often lead to a spiral of unhelpful thoughts, feelings and behaviours. In these situations, it is easy to feel stuck and unable to process things clearly, ultimately leaving us feel helpless!
At times of challenge, rationale thinking will often go out of the window, leading to thoughts and actions that are driven by the emotions experienced at the time.
Having an opportunity to explore some of these unhelpful thoughts, feelings and behaviours might seem daunting and uncomfortable at first. However, once some of the negative beliefs systems are challenged, bringing about new ways of thinking, this will soon become the norm.
Every step of the process, Sunflower Cognitive Therapies will be there to guide and support you. Questioning some of the old thoughts, feels and behaviour patterns and teaching you new ways of thinking, feeling and responding when faced with difficult situations or challenges.
