Benefits of Counselling
Is your life is so busy that you often feel exhausted and experience feelings of disconnect or loneliness? Does trying to meet all your responsibilities at home, school, in the workplace and with your relationships leave you feeling depleted? Do you forget to take time to re-assess what’s important, keep your life on track and ensure your goals are being met? That’s when working with a counsellor can help you make significant changes that will lead to a range of health benefits.
Counselling involves talking to a trained professional about difficult issues in your life where you may be feeling stuck, anxious, depressed or overwhelmed.
In counselling you will have the time and space to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviour within a safe time, a non-judgemental environment, with someone you can help you make sense of things and understand yourself better and assist you to resolve complicated feelings and find more empowering ways of coping in life. Counselling can also you help you recognise unhelpful patterns in the way you think or act, and find ways to change them (if you want to).
Counselling can help you manage and cope with difficult life events, such as relationship problems; an upsetting or traumatic experience that was more recent or happened a long time ago; how to cope with difficult emotions such as grief, guilt, sadness, confusion, anger and low self-esteem and help to move you through your depression and anxiety.
Counselling can help you slow down, examine what is happening in your life and help you make decisions with clarity and understanding.
