I have been a Counselor for over 14 years, I am also a Supervisor of Counselors. I find both roles to be very rewarding. What is Counselling? Counselling is a talking therapy. Discussing the difficulties or unhappy periods that we all encounter in our everyday lives. These unhappy times may or may not be connected to a specific problem. Discussing it with a person who is not directly affiliated with the situation or is outside the family can help to put the situation into perspective for the person. How do you cope with : everyday challenges dealing with others - like your significant other or friends and family yourself as you age learning to say No! and not feel guilty learning new belief systems, or to live by your own values, thoughts & feelings learning your hearts true desire learning to communicate in an assertive way learning to appreciate lessons learnt from your parents Learning to appreciate YOU just as you are Counseling can help you make sense of your life, resolve specific problems, help you to make decisions, help you deal with phobia, stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, addictions, abuse, bereavement, divorce or separation, conflict with others, relationships, and many other issues affecting emotional and mental well-being.
