ADOLESCENT COUNSELLING

Counselling for young people from age 12 upwards

Support for parents, family members, carers and friends.

ANGER MANAGEMENT

There is nothing wrong with feeling angry. It’s all about how we deal with that anger.

For some people, it is a sin to get angry.  There is no place for anger in their lives.  They believe they should never be angry.  I believe it is okay to feel angry.  Anger is a legitimate emotion just as joy, fear, peace and frustration are...

ANXIETY

What is it we are afraid of?  Is life throwing up challenges we don’t feel we have the resources to cope with?

When we are confronted with a challenging situation and we are not sure we have the skills or capacity or strength to deal with that challenge, we feel anxious.  Having to speak in front of an audience for the first time or maybe the hundredth time…

DEPRESSION

Often much more than feeling sad or low. 
Where do those dark thoughts come from?

Depression can be unrelenting and involve a loss of interest in life. Depression impacts how one functions.  Causes of depression can be biological, psychological or social, or a combination of all three.  Brain function can be impacted.

GRIEF

Helping you deal with loss.  It may be the loss of a loved one, the loss of a job, the loss of our health.  We can grieve when a pet passes away.

Grief is a reaction not only to death – when we lose a relationship, but too any loss.  As we travel through life, through the life span, we experience many changes: primary school to high school, high school to work or to university, university to work, being single to marriage or having an intimate partner, having a partner to separation, divorce or widowhood, children leaving home, work to retirement or losing a job. When we experience change, we experience loss and we experience grief...

RELATIONSHIP COUNSELLING

For individuals, couples and families

If people come for counselling to resolve relationship issues, at some point I will draw from the research of John Gottman, American psychologist, and introduce the client/s to the “Four Horsemen”.  Gottman’s Four Horsemen metaphor is based on the Four Horsemen from the book of Revelation in the New Testament.  In the New Testament, the four horsemen represent Conquest, War, Famine, and Death.   Gottman uses the four horsemen to depict four communication styles that are likely to bring down a relationship: Criticism, Contempt, Defensiveness and Stonewalling (the cold shoulder)...

WORKPLACE STRESS

It seems we are increasingly expected to do more with less.  How do we work out what’s important and what’s not?  What’s realistic and what’s not?

This service is a favorite among many of my clients, as it is often times one of the keys to a happier, healthier life. My job is to give you the tools and techniques to achieve a balanced and fulfilling lifestyle. After several sessions, you will become well-versed at handling issues whenever and wherever they arise. Call now to schedule a session.

GENERAL COUNSELLING

For wellness.  Identify & work through any issues you may have

There may be issues in our lives that we are not aware of.  They are brought to our attention by others and it can be a rude shock.  Our self-esteem can be undermined by other’s judgements and perceptions.   We want to talk about it but need a safe place to do so, and a listening non-judgemental ear.
