"HEAR ... TO HELP"
Looking for Something Better...
Some people come to counselling with clear concerns; others come only with a troubled sense that something is not quite right. I am happy to work with people coming in with a variety of concerns, individual, or relational.
Individual Counselling can involve a few things:
(a) sorting out something which is troubling,
(b) figuring out choices, values, perspectives, goals, or priorities,
(c) working on behaviour (how we communicate, what we do).
Relational Counselling is for couples, families, or other relationships (like work). It can include the same three things listed above under individual counselling. However, the concern here is often how these things are experienced or communicated with others.
In doing counselling, both the counsellor and the client(s) play an active role. Together we explore your concerns, define our goals, and work towards resolution or change.
I often compare psycho-therapy with the more physically oriented physio-therapy, or even working with a personal trainer at a gym! Change takes all of us working together; and effective change sometimes takes time. Happily, what we do in counselling can be a part of a larger life process of growth. All of this can work together to help you to sort out & to achieve your personal goals.
