Alison Hunter Therapy
Counselling, Psychotherapy, Coaching in Glasgow Southside & Online

What do I talk about?

Regular therapy is different to pretty much all other appointments in our lives: there’s no itinerary; no AOB to keep across; no homework to complete and no expectation of you. In fact, it all sounds pretty ideal.

However, the lack of structure can sometimes feel a bit daunting. So often I’ve heard people say they thought they didn’t have anything to talk about before suddenly finding the session has flown by as they become focused on a personal topic they hadn't considered much before. Given you are the focus of therapy, it’s understandable you'd assume you need to have a raft of subjects up your sleeve ready to delve into. It might sometimes be the case you have something burning on your mind, yet it’s just as likely there isn’t anything specific eating away at you. These are both normal and interesting to look at in sessions. When there isn’t anything in particular to talk about, we can sometimes feel freer to risk mentioning things not previously vetted in our mind. All of this is welcome and I’m always happy to talk with clients about these and any other sticking points around therapy we may not be certain about.

“I approached the counselling process with a certain level of trepidation and anxiety. However Alison was able to be supportive and reassuring, creating a safe environment. The sessions were undertaken at a pace I felt comfortable with and it was clear Alison was able to respond to my individual situation which was multifaceted. I found the process helpful and beneficial.I would be more than comfortable approaching Alison in the future should the need arise.” Anonymous, Glasgow
