Counselling offers support. This support does not intend to create dependence.
‘I would like to feel happy but I can’t figure out what’s holding me back’. ‘I’m not being the real me’. ‘My direction in life is uncertain, particularly at work’. ‘Moving forward after this loss has been very difficult’. ‘ I don’t have enough support’…
Clients attend counselling primarily to increase their ability to self help. Through enhancing self awareness, progress can be made on many different types of issues. Whilst talking to friends and family is important and may offer some support, client’s frequently comment ‘…it’s not the same as counselling’.
Counselling provides a safe, non-judgmental, confidential and caring environment for individuals to adapt to and grow through life changes. As there are numerous approaches and styles to counselling; it is important for you to find someone that you can personally work with and trust. Becoming more aware of your unique circumstances, values and purpose can be empowering, motivating and enable you to move forward one step at a time.
I aim to listen, hear and understand you, so that you feel supported and encouraged whilst being in the presence of vulnerability. If you are asking yourself, ‘What could I do to make my life a more positive experience?’ consider giving counselling a go.
