Compassion Focused Therapy
You are here for a reason. You may be hurting, been through trauma, lost your spark or can't stop ruminating over the past. Perhaps you want to find ways to face your fears, recover from setbacks and adversity that has affected you for long enough.
- Counselling helps you explore how you can overcome emotional isolation. Realise how your childhood environment shaped the way you see the world and yourself. Learn how you can free yourself of your harsh inner critic, constant self-blame or default negative thinking.
- Do you want to make a positive change in your life, re-build connections and find meaning?
- Are you keen to increase your resilience?
Gain deeper insight into your mindset and determine what holds you back from being who you want to be. What thoughts and feelings are behind your behaviours or habits. Cultivate a positive mindset and self-compassion: act with courage and dedication to transform your life to the better.
- Feeling down or always worrying?
- Lacking confidence or afraid of being judged?
- Finding it hard to connect with others, fit in or be understood?
- Are you a perfectionist or intensely self-critical?
Counselling can help with these issues plus many more.
Individual counselling offers a safe and non-judgemental place to explore persistent negative feelings. Depression, anxiety and low self-worth can all be approached with deep care and compassion. You can cultivate 'emotional fitness', become more self-aware and resilient. Life can be hard. However, it is possible to get better at coping with stress, trauma and feelings of brokenness.
- Loss of a loved one, relationship breakup, job redundancy, business failure or health deterioration can all trigger the process of grieving.
- Feeling left alone and unable to cope?
- Do pain and longing rule your every waking moment?
