Individual Psychotherapy & Counselling

Are you seeking more from your life but feeling stuck, overwhelmed or lost?

 

We all yearn to feel a sense of meaning, belonging, love and acceptance.  We are hardwired for these things and if we are not experiencing them, the body and mind sends us warning signals.  We become tired, disillusioned, frustrated, unwell, lacking in energy and motivation.  Or we have the ability to push through – to go through the motions, but the joy and meaning has leached out of life.  These are all signs we have reached the limit of our support, knowledge and skills and it is time to seek out help and grow.

 

Growth is not possible without the necessary supports in place.  If we place a potted fern in a dark cupboard it can’t possibly thrive there. The fern needs a combination of water, sunlight and soil.  For humans to thrive we need a combination of support, knowledge and skills.  If change is difficult, we simply don’t have enough of these tools yet.  We are all just doing the best we can with the skills and knowledge that we currently have.  With new skills and knowledge greater possibilities, opportunities and hopes arise. 

 

Unfortunately, many of us were not taught how to love and look after ourselves in a healthy way – how to identify and honour our needs and maintain healthy boundaries and self care.  In fact often, we were taught just the opposite – fit in, please others, push through, don’t rock the boat.  This lack of connection to our authentic selves, combined with a a deficit of crucial human centred skills impacts our ability to experience better love, compassion, emotional stability, connection, healthy conflict and boundaries.

 

  Thankfully, that’s where we come in – because quality counselling is more than just talk.  We teach you the skills for better self-awareness, compassion, emotional management and relationship building.  Providing you with the essential knowledge and tools you will utilise long after counselling ends.
