...perhaps you’ve done a good job keeping these feelings to yourself – but now there are tell-tale signs and friends, colleagues & family have commented on your …irritability …day-dreaming …forgetfulness …anger?
Good sleep is important but you’re sleeping habits have changed. Your appetite is doing odd things too, you don’t enjoy food anymore or you’re over-eating. The odd “under the duvet” morning is happening more often, each day brings a sense of dread that something terrible is about to happen?
These are only a couple of the frightening EMOTIONAL & PHYSICAL signs of stress, anxiety & depression …and it’s time to STOP! When are you going to pay attention to your emotional, physical & spiritual well-being?
“If you’ve ever had a dodgy laptop or mobile phone, then perhaps your Mind feels a bit like this. So how long do you think you have …before it finally crashes? And are you really prepared to lose your health, relationships, credibility & reputation?
Person-centred counselling is a special way of being with you, where I support you emotionally to get through and beyond a distressing life event …to experience some calm & resolution.
As the number of weekly sessions develop you feel more confident about revealing difficult information about your life history, your family, and the current life event. This professional relationship helps you to reset your emotional compass because you gain clarity, direction and ideas on how to solve the problem.
It is the kind of ‘special’ listening that does happen naturally between people, and I am sure you have met someone who has helped you to feel ‘heard’, and who has ‘validated’ that it is OK to feel the way you do. Their concern and interest is genuine, and you sense this via their voice, body language, and via an internal instinct. A good counsellor will provide a space where to provide a space where growth can occur (mentally & spiritually), and problems can be resolved.
I believe in your ability to solve your problems, and that you are the “best” authority about all things ‘you’! By using questioning techniques that dig deeper into issues, you can solve professional and personal issues e.g. excelling in the workplace, achieving greater happiness and contentment in personal relationships, and gain a deeper understanding about your ambitions and dreams.
We interpret everything that happens to us, because humans need to make sense of events. But when the positive thoughts & interpretations start to fall and the negative ones rise, then you experience higher levels of stress, anxiety and depression.
Minimum of 4 sessions normally required.
