Counselling can help and has many Benefits…
Exploring your thoughts and feelings with a qualified counsellor can ease your sense that you are entirely alone.
Greater awareness and understanding can enhance your relationship with your self and others and improve your sense of choice and self esteem. Once you acknowledge, we can change. This in turn can cultivate the feeling that life can be enjoyed rather than endured.
At the core of therapy is a confidential and collaborative relationship where the counsellor guides the person on a journey of increased understanding. Exploring limiting thoughts and belief systems, so you have the awareness on what is keeping you stuck. Therapy offers a relationship with the intent of alleviating distress and revive hope.
Many situations in life leave us feeling powerless, overwhelmed and a feeling of no choices. I hope to help the person move from a position of self doubt (fear) or insecurity to one where they feel more in control (strength ); to give you back choice in your life and hopefully the confidence to use that choice.
Counselling provides a space to disclose, acknowledge,let go of the past, find direction, and explore your process without having to worry about anyone else. We all have blocks or find that we get stuck in a feeling or perspective that limits us.
A counsellor can provide a compassionate and non-judgmental presence that enables you to develop trust in yourself and your experience. It is not always possible for significant others to provide the degree of objectivity necessary to focus just on your needs. Nor is it appropriate for friends, partners or family to take responsibility for your needs in this way. Counselling, therefore, provides a very unique relationship that supports you in your process towards expanding the possibilities of who you are, and how you choose to live your life.
There are times that the challenges in our lives may lead to isolation, anxiety, depression, and other health problems. Through counselling, you can explore your alternatives, build on your strengths, and develop new insight and skills.
