what is counselling and how does it work
“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
Counselling offers a space where you can work through issues you are finding difficult. People often find it hard to talk about certain problems or difficulties they are having with friends and loved ones. The counselling relationship is different to any other relationship as the counsellor is there 100% for you with the sole intention of helping you work through and process your problems.
counselling gives you a safe space where you can work through your problems in the strictest confidence and without fear of judgement.
Counselling can be used simply to explore and get to know ourselves, equipping us with the knowledge and tools needed to deal with life's challenges.
It can help with a vast range of psychological problems including Anxiety, Addiction, Stress, Panic Attacks and Depression. Counselling can help us explore the way we relate to ourselves and others.
The counselling relationship can be used to explore issues around our identity, who we are, our sexuality and where we fit in the world.
The impact of changes in our life's such as redundancy can be worked through and we can re-evaluate where we are now. Grief and loss can be given the space and time needed to be felt and experienced whilst feeling held.
issues around sex can be explored and worked through in a safe space.
Traumatic events and experiences can be processed and there departmental effects on us reduced. Patterns of behaviour which cause us pain and stop us living a fuller more meaningful life can be identified, helping us to heal and live the life we truly want.
Through exploring our past we can help shape our present and prepare for our future.
