Hello and welcome to Outing Therapy. I’m so pleased, you’ve found your way here.
I’m Katerina and I love supporting people on their therapeutic journey with a Counselling Psychotherapist after having spent four years working with one myself and seeing incredible resutls and changes in the way I think and feel that I never could have imagined possible. As a result, hoping to make a difference to people who themselves feel…
They’ve tried everything in the book to change their lives, but none of it seems to work
There is some kind of external force stopping them, preventing them, from getting the things they want in life
Everyone else in the world has some kind of ‘secret formula’ to life they don’t know about
At a loss with the process of therapy, not really understanding the purpose of it, or how it’s going to make a difference to them and their lives.
They would like to try something they’ve never tried before to get a result they’ve never gotten before
So if any of this describes you to a T, then you’re in the right place as throughout my blog, I’m going to demystify how working with a Counselling Psychotherapist will support you in finding that ‘secret formula’ to life you’ve been so desperately looking to find, but yet haven’t found.
However, it’s important to note simply reading how a Counselling Psychotherapist will support you, isn’t going to be enough. Since to see results, you need to actively participate in the journey of working with a Counselling Psychotherapist and only then will you discover the ‘secret formula’.
Yes it will be difficult, but it will also be worth it too.
I will say though if you’re perfectly happy to keep doing what you’re doing, day in day out, year after year, then this blog probably isn’t for you.
Working with a Counselling Psychotherapist for four years (like all too many people) I made tons of mistakes in the way I thought about, felt about and approached therapy sessions as I had lots of misconceptions about it.
And, at one point during the process, I felt like I was going round and round the same struggles, not seeing any real results, which I didn’t understand because I had experienced change the first year of working with a Counselling Psychotherapist and at various times during my sessions.
But there was still something I wasn’t/couldn’t quite see.
However, after three years I finally figured out the formula to making therapy work for me and want to support you in doing the same so you don’t make the same mistakes I did.
What I blog about
A Counselling Psychotherapists, approach to therapy is a holistic one, which recognizes no one thing can support you in creating change in your life and for change to occur in one area of our lives, often change in another area of our lives will also require changing.
And it’s that approach I also take to sharing how to effectively work with a Counselling Psychotherapist.
Therefore, I blog about the following topics:
What led me to blogging?
My inspiration to start blogging was when I saw two bloggers on TV competing on who could save the most money.
And I thought to myself, ‘that’s so cool, I’d love to do that’.
But at that time, I had no clue what to write about because I wasn’t working with a Counselling Psychotherapist and I didn’t believe in myself or in my capabilities.
And it was only some years later that I started working with a Counselling Psychotherapist and thought it would be a good idea to start a blog that would go behind the scenes of working with one.
Since I myself was completely oblivious to the process of working with a therapist before I started working with one, and thought if I was oblivious to the process, then there have to be others out there who also feel oblivious to the process and so are reluctant to work with one.
In the years before blogging too, I tried many different jobs from…
Charity Fundraising to Market Research to Human Resources.
But none of them made me happy or were an exact match.
As I enjoyed parts of each job, like writing, marketing, learning and using new technology but the rest I was happy to leave.
What am I doing when I’m not blogging?
When I’m not blogging you’ll find me happily in my home (London, UK) drinking a mug of tea, writing morning pages, meditating, reading personal development books, watching motivational videos or experimenting with the Good Food App cooking recipes.
And when I find time to watch TV, I love a bit of Gogglebox and Dragons Den.
The best thing about blogging is staying in touch with readers.
And, if any of my articles resonate with you and/or your therapy sessions in any way, I’d love to hear how.
So, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment on any article.
