The experience of being in a confidential, safe setting with someone who listens with care, consideration and without judging can, in itself, be very therapeutic.  If we add to this the consistency and reliability of this therapeutic relationship there will begin to exist a solid foundation; a safe container, within which problems can be explored and worked with at an appropriate level, thoughts and feelings can be expressed and clarified, and personal insight, self-awareness and the growth of self-esteem can be experienced.   

Many people report that the problems which brought them into therapy are better understood and managed, or resolved, and that the process has changed their lives for the better, often enriching it in a way they had never imagined possible.
