The process of talking aloud, answering questions, exploring issues, describing experience and clarifying thoughts with a trained professional helps to clarify one’s thinking and feelings and increase one’s self-awareness. Your treating psychologist can help provide a different perspective, increase awareness of the sometimes unhelpful thinking and behavioural patterns that cause ‘being stuck’. When we hear ourselves say what we want aloud itcan also help motivate us to act.Psychologists are trained to ask the right questions that enable you to find the right answers.
