Guilt Therapy

Guilt Therapy Counselling in Hebden Bridge

Guilt is a feeling of embarrassment and regret that you are responsible for a negative action or event.

Could Guilt be a possible contributor or cause of your low moods

What Can You Do If Guilt is Causing Your Depression

Ask your questions about guilt and depression with Gareth Parry Professional, Therapeutic Counsellor

Can guilt therapy help, given that guilt so often links back to earlier life experiences and comes frequently hand in hand with shame.

Guilt therapy is often needed to unravel it and separate its control on your moods and life. A qualified counsellor like Gareth Parry can help you process guilt in these ways:

  • Gently stimulate your attempts to face the truth about your past experiences and/or any specific past conduct, that may have played a part in your feelings of guilt.
  • Engage you in constructive dialogue as you look for greater understanding with regards to why you feel guilty for things you didn’t do and/or you took the negative steps you did.
  • Build a secure approach to reconciliation, so you can both have constructive and safe conversations with those who left you feeling guilty as well as apologise to those you hurt.
  • Focus on self-forgiveness and letting go of the past, as you endeavour to change your perspective and mind set.

Shame Therapy

Shame Therapy Counselling in Hebden Bridge

When do we start feeling shame? Shame starts when a child is about 8 months old.

The rise of social comparison means the rise of comparison inducing the shame response

Does social context make your shame worse

Some of us are conscious of our shame, yet others can mask or cover up shame in various ways

What does shame feel like? This may feel like an obvious question, but each person feels shame differently. Ask yourself the last time you felt shame, and try to describe what it felt like…

Often people will use the words “embarrassment”, “awkwardness”, or “humiliation” in the place of shame. This seems to diffuse the emotion, meaning that the fully blown shame is not felt, and is replaced by a less intense negative emotion.
