Being unhappy, anxious, or unfulfilled is a stressful state. Stress is more than just a personal issue in these challenging times, but addressing the things you can change internally makes such a difference.
If you want help:
Managing your stress…
Feeling happier and more confident…
Making peace with your past…
Change is so much easier with support from a counsellor.
If you are like many of the people I work with, you want to feel happier, more peaceful, and inspired in your life, but something is getting in the way.
You may be longing to move forward into the dreams and goals you have for yourself either in your home life or in your career, but don’t know how to deal with the fear, tension, or confusion that sometimes arise.
Perhaps you are worried about and feeling overwhelmed by bigger picture questions like Covid, climate change, or economic and sociopolitical issues and injustices in the world.
Or perhaps you are experiencing some of the health challenges that can come from ongoing stress. You may be noticing the signs of strain in your body, with aches and pains, decreased immunity, or other health issues. (Our bodies often speak to us through symptoms, letting us know there is something deeper that needs our attention.)
- Sometimes feel overwhelmed by the stresses and pressures you feel?
- Want to be able to handle fear, anxiety, or anger more effectively?
- Have an incident or situation in your life that remains unresolved?
- Want to find a sense of deeper meaning or purpose?
- Feel that you are ready for a change, and feel unsure of where to start?
If you resonate with any of the above, I'd be happy to talk to you further about how counselling could help.
Counselling can be a powerful support for the changes you want to make in your life.
Even though you may have lived with these challenges up until now, or painful things may have happened in your life, you do not have to continue down the same difficult path.
Letting go of the past and being more effective in the present involve simple but powerful skills that you can learn. These skills will help you:
- transform your response to the stressors in your life.
- make peace with old griefs, integrate them fully, and move on.
- learn to value yourself and what you have to offer--as much as you value others.
Transform old emotional patterns that
are not working for you--
so that fear, anxiety, and depression are no longer in charge.
In my counselling practice, I help you explore and uncover how to have more access to your own inner strength and wisdom. Through our work together, you will experience more clarity on how to move through the issues that are negatively affecting your life.
I am becoming more confident in my own skin, happier about the decisions I make, more positive about the future and my boundaries are stronger.”
