Welcome to Therapy Insights

Having worked as a therapist for over 12 years, I frequently chat to people who are curious about therapy, who have preconceptions about therapy or who have even had a bad experience of therapy. All of this can lead to people not seeking the help and support they need.

We want to stop this and ensure that everyone gets the help and support they need, in a way that works for them!

We are therefore thrilled to release a series of blogs titled "Therapy Insights" with the aim of demystify therapy and mental health. Whether you're a therapy newbie or just looking to learn more, we've got you covered.

What is Therapy?

Therapy is a safe space to explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours, and to develop strategies to tackle whatever challenges life is throwing at you. Whether it's a short-term issue or a long-term support system, therapy can be a game-changer. At Beam, we encourage people to see therapy as an opportunity to been in a non judgemental space to explore what is going on in their life whilst learning tools and techniques to overcome them and empower them for the future.

Generally, therapy is very tool and action focussed, the therapist will teach you many of their own tools and strategies to help you feel more in control.

Why Seek Therapy?

People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons. Therapy isn't just for crises; it’s a proactive step towards maintaining mental well-being. It’s about getting to know yourself better, improving your relationships, and leading a more fulfilling life.

Our clients come for a wide range of reasons and we often explain that therapy is like water. It can work to put out 'fires' such as a crisis, trauma, anxiety, grief but that water can also be used to water seeds and be used in more of a coaching capacity to help you create new beliefs, feel more confident and create positive habits.

We believe that therapy is something everyone could benefit from!

Common Themes and Issues in Therapy

In our Therapy Insights series, we’ll explore some of the common reasons people seek therapy, such as:

  • Anxiety: What causes it, how it shows up, and ways to manage it.

  • Grief: Dealing with loss and finding a path to healing.

  • Limiting Beliefs: Identifying and overcoming those pesky self-imposed barriers.

Addressing Preconceptions About Therapy

There are a lot of misconceptions about therapy. Some people think it’s only for those with severe mental health issues or that seeking help is a sign of weakness. We're here to challenge those ideas and show that therapy can benefit everyone, no matter their situation.

FAQs About Therapy

We’ll also answer some common questions, like:

  • How do I find the right therapist?

  • What should I expect in a therapy session?

  • How long does therapy take?

Our Goal

Our goal with "Therapy Insights" is to provide valuable insights and resources to help you navigate the world of therapy. We want to create a supportive community where questions are welcomed, and mental health is prioritised. Stay tuned for our next blog, where we’ll dive into the topic of anxiety—what it is, how it affects us, and how therapy can help.

If you have any questions or topics you’d like us to cover, feel free to reach out. In the meantime, you can find more help and support on our resources page too.
