Dealing with feelings and emotions
You may just have feelings you do not want or do not understand. Your head maybe full of conflicting thoughts. There can sometimes be a battle in your inner unconscious mind over events or situations. Whatever is going on for you, however big or small, counselling can help you deal with any of these thoughts or feelings. It is possible these feelings have always been there. It might be a more recent way of thinking or feeling. Either way, the counselling service Tim Langhorn provides, will help you understand and deal with whatever it is you have on your mind.
At times you will find solace and support from family or friends. After all they know you and to a degree will understand you. They will be kind, sympathetic and have your best interests at heart. However, they may not be able to stay objective, because how well they know you. And it’s not always sympathy you need. Sometimes you need someone like Tim, who is able to listen objectively, without emotional interference and be able to stay fully focussed and non-judgemental at all times. That’s the difference between people close to you and a professional counselling therapist, such as Tim Langhorn.
Counselling for Men & Women
Tim Langhorn recognises that counselling men and women can be very different. Just having a conversation between men and women can be challenging. That old adage ‘Men are from Mars, women from Venus’, says it all to some degree. We are not of course from differing planets. But right from the start boy’s and girls are often treated differently, think differently, engage in conversations and use their emotions differently.
As a therapist or private individual, Tim would never want to stereotype men or women. He works with each person in a totally unique and individualistic way. It is often said that men struggle to get in touch with their feelings or know what to do with them when they do. Some might say that women get overly emotional or talk about their feelings too openly. Well Tim Langhorn doesn’t quite look at it like that. As a man Tim is totally unique compared to many other men he knows or has contact with. He does talk about feelings and is in touch with his emotional side. Tim also knows plenty of women who are just as closed off from their feelings as some men he has met. So it is definitely not one size fits all with gender.
Suffice to say that we all come in various sizes, shapes and personalities. We all have feelings and we all have emotions. At the end of the day, it’s just how we are able to allow them to maximise our mental well-being which matters. There is no right or wrong way for men or women to use or manage their emotional state of being. We are all just different. And it’s that difference which makes it such a wonderful world to live in. It is also that difference, which makes Tim Langhorns life as a counselling therapist, such an interesting and worthwhile profession.
