counselling & psychotherapy
specialising in embracing change
Counselling is not about fixing what is wrong with you. It is about uncovering what is right with you but it is covered in doubt and fear. I offer a safe place where you can make sense of your thoughts. Together, we will raise what is submerged in your subconscious to a conscious level of self awareness. That is where the changes can be made to break habitual cycles, and where the magic happens. Counselling offers an understanding of what the real underlying issue is and offers tools and techniques to take home in order for the real changes to take place.
Grief and Loss
This could be the loss of dreams, the loss of self after having children, the loss of youth etc. Sometimes it is not even about what we have lost, it is about what we never had to begin with. For example, a mother who was never there for us, or a childhood that was taken away too soon. The bottom line is that grief needs to be validated and processed before a new world view can be established. You do not have to wait to have lost something in order to uncover the losses in your life. It is usually at a time of a tangible loss that we begin to process all our other losses.
“It’s through our cracks that the light comes in”.
Anxiety and Depression
Stress is a silent killer that most people accept as a natural part of life. Unacknowledged stress can lead to cell mutations and can cause all kinds of diseases. The word disease stems from the “dis ease” of the mind.
Learn to recognize your stress symptoms before it manifests in maladjusted ways. Learn tools and techniques to keep your mind, body and spirit in alignment so that you can gain success and not stress.
People fear change. Most people will stay in a horrible situation because the certainty of the discomfort is easier than the unknown. The irony is that life is for ever changing. We are not the same people we were when we woke up in the morning, nor are we the same people we were yesterday or five years ago. Learn to lean into change with curiosity and confidence instead of resisting.
“What we resist persists”.
