Positive psychology looks at what is right with people, focuses on when people are at their best, and attends to individual and group flourishing. I will capitalize on the clients’ internal strenghts. Trauma often shatters belief systems and robs people of their sense of meaning. In doing so, it forces people to put the pieces back together. I will help you rebuild beautifully those parts of life that could never have been torn down voluntarily. I will not assign labels to you. I believe in Eastern methodologies and what our ancestors taught us best ‘ rest a while and you will see.. feed the spirit and soul, listen to what you already know.. then you will come home’ .
It is human nature to need help at different points on our journey through life, and having a friendly, warm counsellor who doesn’t judge, can help navigate you back to feeling like the ‘true you ‘. I have completed the necessary training and assessments to demonstrate competence and understanding within this field.
Counselling is a talking therapy in which problem situations or difficult feelings can be discussed and explored in a safe and confidential environment. It is not a directive process but a facilitative one, with the aim of uncovering, understanding and overcoming the root cause of disturbance in a person’s sense of psychological well-being. It is not time-limited and can be short-term- a number of weeks , or long-term – a number of months or more in duration, depending on the need of each individual.
Common issues addressed in counselling can be Anxiety, Depression, Low Self-Esteem, Stress, Grief and Bereavement. I aim to take each client through a structured, systematic process informed by a variety of therapeutic principals including the Humanistic and Diagnostic models ,to help clients better understand and cope with situations that they are struggling with.
