The following is an extract from The Independent published earlier this month:
More of us than ever have had therapy, according to a new study, which reveals that more than a quarter (28 per cent) of people in the UK have consulted a counsellor or psychotherapist, compared to just one in five people in 2010.
“I don’t think it’s that more of us are unhappy. I just think it shows that the stigma attached to counselling has dramatically diminished,” says BACP governor, Dr Andrew Reeves.
If you are, or someone you know is, going through a difficult time, then just remember – it’s good to talk.
