General Counselling

Private and Confidential 

If your worries are taking over your thoughts and your mind is filled with constant chatter that you just can't switch it off Counselling may help. No one wants to feel stressed out and unhappy. It's not a natural state to be in. 

 

When your problems begin to take over your life and when you've had enough of feeling this way, talking to a stranger - especially a Professional Counsellor can help you to see things in a different light so you can overcome the stress you've been feeling. 

How do you know if Counselling is right for you?

  • You have a problem and you're finding it difficult to come up with a solution on your own.

  • You're experiencing depression, anxiety or stress.

  • Friends or family are part of the issue so you can't talk to them about it. 

  • Your past is interfering with your future thoughts and creating stress and worry. 

  • You don't know why you feel the way you do - you just want to stop feeling that way. 

  • You need a sounding board so that you can make a decision.

  • You need a safe place to talk about your feelings.  

COVERING:

 

  • ANXIETY

  • CHILDHOOD ISSUES

  • RELATIONSHIP PROBLEMS

  • UNSURE OF YOUR LIFE DIRECTION

  • GRIEF AND LOSS SADNESS

  • ADDICTIONS

  • CAREER WORRIES

  • EVERYDAY LIFE ISSUES

  • LACK OF MOTIVATION

Together we will work on ways to overcome the feelings or thoughts you are experiencing. I will help you to take control to feel better about yourself and your situation. Having the tools to deal with stress and knowing how to get past your problems is the first step to creating a life you love. 

Techniques I may apply with you in your session:

CBT 

CBT is like a practical toolkit for managing anxiety. It helps you understand how your thoughts, feelings, and actions are all connected. When you feel anxious, your mind might start racing with worries and 'what-ifs.' CBT teaches you to recognize these anxious thoughts and challenge them. We'll work together to see if they're really true or if there might be a different way to look at things.

We'll also learn some useful skills to calm your body and mind, like deep breathing and relaxation techniques. And instead of avoiding things that make you anxious, we'll gradually face them in a safe and controlled way. It's a bit like building up your 'anxiety muscles' – the more you practice, the stronger and more confident you'll become in managing your anxiety.

Think of it as rewiring your brain to respond differently to anxiety triggers, so you can feel more in control and live your life more fully, without anxiety holding you back.

DBT

DBT is like a supportive toolkit for boosting your confidence and self-esteem. It's all about learning new skills to help you feel more sure of yourself and navigate life's challenges with greater confidence.

In DBT, we'll explore the thoughts and beliefs you have about yourself that might be holding you back. We'll challenge any negative or unhelpful thoughts and replace them with more balanced and empowering ones. It's like upgrading your self-talk from 'I can't do this' to 'I'm capable and deserving.'

You'll also learn practical strategies for coping with difficult emotions and situations. We'll focus on building your resilience and self-compassion, so you can bounce back from setbacks and treat yourself with kindness and understanding.

Think of DBT as giving you a toolbox full of skills and techniques to help you navigate life's ups and downs with confidence and resilience. With practice and support, you'll start to believe in yourself more and realize your worth and potential.

ACT

ACT is like a roadmap for building healthier and more fulfilling relationships. It's all about learning to accept yourself and others as you are, while also committing to making positive changes in how you relate to each other.

In ACT, we'll explore the patterns and dynamics in your relationships that might be causing you distress. Instead of trying to change or control others, we'll focus on accepting the things you can't change and taking action in line with your values.

You'll learn mindfulness techniques to help you stay present and attentive in your interactions with others. This can help you communicate more effectively and respond thoughtfully rather than reactively.

We'll also work on clarifying your values and priorities in relationships. By understanding what's truly important to you, you can make choices and set boundaries that align with your values and promote healthy connections.

Think of ACT as a guide for building more authentic and meaningful relationships. It's about fostering acceptance, compassion, and connection, so you can create deeper and more fulfilling connections with others while staying true to yourself.
