What can you expect from Counselling?
Sometimes you just need to talk to someone else in a safe, confidential and accepting environment. We listen with empathy and together we gain an understanding of the issues you may be facing in your life. We support you in making changes and implementing strategies needed to improve your situation, challenges or relationships, as needed. Through this, we help with improving your wellbeing in life and we look at ways in which you can flourish and live a meaningful, values-driven life.
Who can benefit from our Counselling?
Well anybody, really! For example:
- Young to mature people
What is Positive Counselling?
We focus on your strengths and previous achievements as a means to come up with workable solutions, as opposed to deliberating endlessly about problems. Whilst we do not diminish the multiple issues and concerns that client’s face on a day-to-day basis, we believe that after forming a thorough understanding of what the issues and concerns are, most time and effort in counseling should be spent jointly finding solutions and working at implementing these.
We focus on strategies that foster positive emotions, engagement, meaning (in your life and those of others), positive relationships and accomplishment – In short, that which makes life worth living; gives it meaning and allows you to flourish! We also use and teach mindfulness techniques as an effective way to handle unpleasant and unhelpful thoughts, feelings and sensations that often get in the way of us achieving the life we want and living our values.
