Counselling & Psychotherapy
Counselling is usually short-term and often addresses immediate life issues – simple techniques or even a fresh perspective can often resolve what is at hand. Psychotherapy may be a longer term option for more complex issues, exploring more deeply one’s sense of self, relationships or work with ongoing mental or psychological concerns. Transpersonal Psychotherapy explores more deeply who or what we are. It provides the space when we have the urge to explore beyond our personal stories.
Why come to therapy?
Below are just some of the reasons why a person might seek therapy.
- Personal crisis prompting a desire to share in order to find clarity
- Emotional, psychological or spiritual crisis or breakdown
- Chronic, critical or terminal illness or a psychological condition
- Long held grief that has never been released
- Feelings of anxiety, phobias, anger, rage, shame or guilt
- Unresolved issues from the past that keep re-emerging
- Depression due to circumstance or reoccurring episodes
- Feelings of insecurity, lack confidence or self esteem
- Work issues such as stress, bullying, boredom or dissatisfaction
- Redundancy, unemployment or retirement
Therapy doesn’t just have to happen in times of crisis or to resolve issues. Exploring life itself can bring quality & peace which becomes the backdrop of experiencing. We are all seeking happiness, however we seek it in many different ways. It is often at the point of crisis that desire to share or break through happens – therapy may provide an opportunity to explore the root cause of these beliefs, feelings & behaviours.
