How does counselling work?
"Counselling can be a powerful agent for psychological growth, or simply allowing us to live our lives more fully in the present."
Counselling often plays a pivotal role in releasing us from unhelpful, past patterns of behaviour. This ‘unlocking’ of old patterns comes about through the increased self-awareness and self-acceptance fostered by the counselling process. Counselling can be a powerful agent for psychological growth, or simply allowing us to live our lives more fully in the present.
To help you fulfil your true potential, we can explore your current life situation and the issues you are facing, what may be holding you back, and how to overcome the difficulties you face.
Counselling is actually a very creative process, enabling individuals to make significant changes in many aspects of their lives. Many on their personal journeys overcome their initial difficulties, and the reasons they first came to counselling, and find themselves travelling into new, unchartered waters.
Further into counselling, others areas of one’s life may be brought into sharper focus. It can become very important for some to work at a deeper level with their newfound confidence in living more authentically. Exploring
the meanings of one’s existence can often lead to the challenging of
long-standing, personal beliefs. Working at a deeper level often means
tapping into unconscious material more.
