What is counselling for?
Counselling is for you. Sometimes we need to find a place to slow down and rediscover what our life is really about. A space to release and discover lost and hidden parts of ourselves. Counselling can help if you find it difficult to value your worth in the world, if you are despairing or feel that there should be more to life. You may be seeking to come to terms with what has been, improve your relationships, or overcome internal barriers.
How does counselling work?
Counselling can change your attitude towards things that are hard to accept. It can help loosen the grip of deep seated patterns and make it possible to experience life differently. It may help improve relationships through greater self confidence and less pressure to be a certain way or play a role in order to please others. Deeper understanding of historical family problems can throw light on what roles can drop away and what you want to do in order to live well and be true to yourself.
How long does counselling take?
For some, a relatively short period of talking therapy can be enough. Just a few sessions may give you what you need. Alternatively you might want more time to explore where your heart wants to take you. Some engage with counselling or therapy as an ongoing practice of nurturing the soul. In short, how long it takes will depend on what you hope to gain and what you want to invest.
