"...Are you looking to find calm and relief from relationship difficulties?

Counselling for individual and couples counselling
If some of the following are familiar:
Feeling anxious depressed sad helpless controlled by panic
Struggling to cope with sudden change within the family
Affected by historic or recent traumatic experiences
Feeling trapped by relationship unhealthy patterns
Struggling with substance or alcohol issues
Searching to find meaning and purpose in your life
Life's challenges can feel overwhelming
Changes are part of a natural way of life. In such changes you hope to be rewarded with things that give you contentment. A fulfilling relationship, a satisfying career, a pleasant home - the things you expect in life to gain peace and fulfilment.
However at times life brings unexpected changes. Struggles in your relationship, you lose your job, you suffer a bereavement leaving you dealing with unexpected life challenges. Family situations leaving you not knowing what to do. You feel confused lost everyday decisions hard to manage. You feel out of control making you anxious. You have difficulty sleeping or getting out of bed to face the day is a real struggle.
Often difficulties we encounter are relational arising out of our interactions with others. These can be rooted in early life trauma if emotional support was absent or recent relationships within our personal and professional life. How we react and perceive ourselves when engaging with others is determined by lived experiences at the various stages in our lives.
Our capacity to be authentic is related to a meaningful and fulfilling life. Working through our own pain self discovery enables us to connect deeply within ourselves. Find a sense of who we are as people gaining the strength to find the personal fulfilment we yearn for.
Counselling or Psychotherapy?
The focus of the work determines the route:
Counselling - When at times difficulties in a relationship can leave us questioning reasons to be there. This is particularly useful with goal setting work when persistent difficulties or patterns of behaviour are involved.
Psychotherapy - Used when our view of the world and underlying assumptions shaped by our life experiences lead us to repeat negative patterns of behaviour. Such as, why do I tend to attract a particular person type in my relationships? Feeling second best again?
