COUNSELLING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY
“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”
You are invited to come as you are, without a need to wear any masks, play any roles or pretend to be someone you are not. You are welcome here with all your imperfections and shortcomings which you perhaps cautiously try to hide in your daily life. Hence, your honesty and genuineness combined with a good choice of a therapist you can trust and feel comfortable with, is one of the key ingredients in forming a therapeutic relationship and facilitating the counselling process.
Even though counselling may help with mental health management, you do not have to suffer from a particular mental health problem to benefit from it. We all go through hardship from time to time when we may need someone to talk to, especially when our psychological well-being is deteriorating or when our loved ones cannot understand or truly listen to us without dismissing our feelings or trying to fix us. Also, living in a fast paced society with never-ending stressors and responsibilities, where the supportive spirit of community has been replaced by technological advances, may leave you feeling overwhelmed, lonely or stuck in a hamster wheel without higher purpose or time for reflection.
So counselling can give you that space, where you can stop, take a deep breath, release your worries and ponder on what does or does not work in your life and needs to be changed. The problems that may cause you to consider counselling can include, but are not limited to: depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, traumas, various forms of abuse, relationship issues, lack of confidence, sexual problems, addictions, problems with emotions, stress and/or identity crisis. Sometimes, you may come to counselling because you feel confused about life, lost, unfulfilled or you may be searching for your deeper nature, higher meaning or spiritual values.
