Counselling helps people feel and function better.
It helps identify potential solutions to problems when they face emotional turmoil. It seeks to improve communication and coping skills, rebuilds often battered self-worth, promotes behaviour change and overall well-being. Counselling is a collaborative work between client and counsellor. It builds greater self-awareness thereby enable people to be more attuned, compassionate and present in their own lives.
The human mind is often its own worst enemy: instead of focusing on the present, the mind ruminates about the past or is anxious about the future. Learning to be present with what is arising is one of the most important skills in life.
Counsellors use evidence-based psychological frameworks to best serve the needs of their clients. Counselling offers a safe, non-judgemental, confidential setting for therapy in which clients are able to explore their feelings in depth. In everyday situations such as chatting with family or friends we often just talk about "what happened", and never have the opportunity to go below the surface. During counselling, we assist our clients to connect to their emotions and more importantly to be able to be with them.
I am an open, empathetic and compassionate counsellor. It is my deepest belief that everyone has the ability to overcome their problems and thrive despite their current difficulties. I validate my clients' feelings and help them develop pathways to create lasting inner balance and happiness.
