Psychotherapy & Counselling

People actively seek to increase personal satisfaction in their lives. They may look for support with a specific issue, want personal growth, or wish to engage in a deeper relationship with themselves and others.  Constructive, structured and uncomplicated talking can definitely help.The need for counselling often  arises when life appears to be out of balance, not only in relation to yourself, but also with others. The aim of counselling is to generate equilibrium. This means bringing back a balance between opposite  forces or influences. Every problem has more than one viewpoint. There are  always options. The experiences of hurt, confusion, desperation or helplessness are only one side of the coin. Even when we are suffering greatly, it is possible to find meaning in our pain and become wiser. The challenges of life can teach us how to be more self-contained, have presence of mind and gain tranquillity. Together, we will explore your challenges and the way you are dealing with them. In this way, a playground is created for you to observe and discover better options to respond to them. We will look at deep-seated patterns of behaviour, feelings and  meaning, so expect to learn more about yourself, build a greater awareness of your thoughts and feelings, and understand how this effects you and the people around you.

What to Expect during Psychotherapy & Counselling

 

It is  of primary importance that you the client feel comfortable about the work undertaken. This will enable us to build a relationship of trust that is vital if we are to fully explore your personal difficulties and discover ways of living life more authentically. We will work collaboratively to help you find your own solutions to your problems. This involves exploring the issues that initially led you to seek help, and any related issues that may be playing a part in your life. The overall aim will be to enable you to gain a deeper understanding of your problems, and then to discover ways to deal with them effectively.
