The most basic of all human needs is the need to understand and be understood. The best way to understand people is to listen to them.  

Ralph Nichols

Therapists are trained to listen, to value your feelings and to help you explore them so that you find for yourself your own course of action. Sometimes taking the first step to seek help can be a difficult decision. You may be feeling depressed, angry or afraid. Perhaps you have tried to cope on your own for so long but now find that your coping strategies are no longer working. Therapy will help you to process your thoughts and emotions and to become clearer about who you are and what you need.
