Robert Patterson - Counselling in Kerry

It is quite common for people to feel nervous about going to see a therapist, as the idea of talking to a stranger about our most personal thoughts and feelings can be very daunting. It is crucial therefore that you find a therapist who you are comfortable with, and whom you feel you can develop a good working relationship with. Never be afraid to ask your therapist about their training and qualifications, and check they have experience in working with your particular issue. A competent therapist will be quite happy to answer your questions and discuss their training and professional experience. I would recommend that you only see a therapist who is accredited with one of the professional associations in Ireland. These therapists have had to go through a rigorous process to acquire accreditation, and you are assured that they are working in an ethical and accountable fashion.

I went to see Robert because I was having some difficulties at college, and my doctor had suggested that I go and see a professional, who I could talk openly with. I found Robert very easy to talk to, and he helped me to find solutions to things that had been troubling me. My family have noticed a real difference since I went for counselling with Robert, and I am feeling much better in myself. I now encourage all my friends to go and talk with a professional, if they feel things are getting on top of them. I would happily recommend Robert, and am really glad that I decided to seek some help for myself.

Robert was recommended to me by a friend who had previously been to see him. I felt that I needed to talk with someone as I have been suffering with feelings of anxiety for some time, which was really affecting my relationship. I didn’t want to take medication, without first trying some therapy sessions. Robert showed me ways in which I could challenge my negative thoughts, and I have found that I am able to manage my anxiety, and not let my negative thinking take hold like it used to. I would like to thank Robert for his help, and would recommend him to anyone who is thinking about going to see a therapist.

My doctor recommended that I go and see Robert, as he felt that counselling would be a more appropriate treatment for my negative thoughts. I had recently suffered a family bereavement, and I sometimes felt that I couldn’t face the world. Robert was lovely to talk with, and he allowed me to express how I was feeling, whilst offering me suggestions that could help me to help myself. I have learnt that counselling is a two way process, and it is really important that you find the right person for you. I would gladly recommend Robert, and found him caring and very professional at all times.
