Counselling and Psychotherapy supports and allows for individual expression, to be heard and to be validated. It assists people to live fully, to discover potential, to face fears and to be adventurous. In the counselling process one learns to accept all of the complexities that make us unique, with all our robustness, achievements, mistakes and vulnerabilities.
Counselling and Psychotherapy addresses the whole person and not only a symptom or a medical diagnosis.
It may include facing life’s transitions, loss and grief, withdrawal from life, relationship difficulties, addictions, life’s challenges and traumas past and present. The aim of the work is to support people to increase their spontaneity and creativity and to respond to here and now situations in new ways. There will be an increased awareness of choice.
Psychotherapy involves what is known and what may not be known in personal functioning, usually referred to as “conscious and unconscious factors”. Through a holistic perspective it encompasses the mental, emotional, behavioural, relational, existential and spiritual health of a human being.
A person can develop a greater capacity to be in charge of their life, empowered and self-directing while sensitive in relationship with others. They may experience increasing joy, meaning, peace of mind and heart, intimacy with others, purposefulness, insight, creativity and self-knowledge.
