A frequent question I get asked; is this therapy to talk about being introverted?
The answer is yes and no.
What I offer is an understanding of how a more introverted person deals with:
- The ending of a relationship
- High anxiety that is interfering with living a good life
- Past trauma
- Issues at work
- Issues in partner relationship
- Issues with friendships
- And any other reason we seek out counselling
Because we live in a world that overvalues extroversion and undervalues introversion, when a more introverted person shows up for counselling, where they seek to be understood, they might end up with the opposite experience.
So what may happen in a therapy session, is that the introverted person feels a bit invisible.
In therapy sessions with my clients, I offer them a safe place to be their quiet self. I provide a deep understanding as to how introverted people struggle with grief and loss, trauma, work issues, relationship issues.
Often the result for my clients is that they receive help with the current issue, as well as understanding themselves better as an introvert. It’s like two for the price of one!
