We live in a world where stress and every day confusions all too quickly pile up on top of us. Money, relationships, bad nerves and poor health to name a few. Believe it or not, these are all products of our emotional state and can be changed! For example have you ever questioned how one day you could feel great about a particular person or thing in your life and within minutes for whatever reason, something changes and you feel bad? In that moment what has really changed?
We all strive to build a good life for ourselves; however what happens when we loose our temper, get stressed, get sick! We are actually damaging that very survival. We are allowing the stress of everyday life get us down.
In other words we are in a situation known as the stimulus response effect! Your boss may say something, your partner may comment on a particular thing, the bank asks you for money, you may even see something on the news that upsets you!
The point is something happened and you snapped back. You have lost your cool and you are an effect of that particular incident! This is a stimulus, in which you gave a response. Counseling is a means of you taking control of your life, simply by acknowledging that as a person you have thoughts and feelings that need to be looked at in order to live and happier and fuller life.
Counseling is not hypnosis, or someone telling you how to feel or think, this does not help anyone! Rather counseling aids the individual you to look inwards and find the answers. There are different techniques which counseling offers. Nevertheless counseling is and must be unique to you! To get a better understanding of what is best for you, have a look at our website or give us a call. All counseling must be done in a secure safe environment with highly qualified counselors, after all this is your life and you deserve the best.
A session is based on you, a place where you can talk and look at your life. The session between you and your counselor is private and confidential. It is a place where you can be you, offload the stresses of life and then look at how to ensure they do not effect you moving forward. Once you begin to realise that actually you and only you can control the way you feel, then once and for all you can take that much needed step to building a better you!
