Can Counselling help me?

Communicating with a trained listener who is outside of your life can alleviate your suffering. You might be there for everyone else and realise it's time to focus on your needs. You could have past hurts, be in a dilemma, want an objective point of view or have a negative situation to get through. You may feel invisible in your relationship or like your family just doesn't get you. Perhaps your concerns are too intimate to discuss with friends. Maybe you have tried to sort things yourself but the problem is still there...Counselling can help!

We hold space for you and with you. We aim to have you sleeping better with less worries, living a happier life, the one you so deserve. We'll help you turn your chaos into calm by understanding and overcoming the past, gaining clarity about the present day and developing here-and-now coping strategies. We will encourage you to work towards the future you have always wanted.

I've got friends for support and don't actually have a problem, can I still have Therapy?

Friends and family can be great listeners and give advice but they're not our personal therapists. You can have a healthy support system and still have therapy, this is because a counsellor doesn't operate in the same role as anyone else in your life. The therapeutic relationship is unique to your needs, it encourages your healing, evolving and crisis management.

Some people assume that having counselling means you're in a very dark place mentally. This way of thinking discourages so many from getting help because they don't feel "unwell" enough. Big or small, what you're going through matters. For anyone in a dark place, choosing to have therapy is an awesome and courageous decision. Support is just what you may need.

Gone are the days when the majority of people seeking counselling were in an extreme crisis. Therapy is an investment in you. It's also healthy to connect with a counsellor without having a major problem with the intention to grow, remain productive and talk to a neutral party, one who is there to listen. We go to Doctors and Dentists for check-ups, we work out in gyms daily and treat ourselves to a spa. We even take our cars to the Mechanic for regular servicing. Our mental and emotional health is important too. Let's try to normalise having therapy before we're in crisis mode.
