Counselling provides the opportunity to have a non-judgmental, and safe, confidential therapeutic relationship while you explore issues, emotions and situations which are preventing you from feeling able to cope. These feelings may be brought on by events that you can identify such as bereavement, relationship worries, or stress. However, many people can find themselves suffering from anxiety and depressive feelings for which they cannot identify a cause. In these situations the temptation to blame oneself and to wonder why you can’t just “snap out of it” which only makes you feel worse. Counselling provides you with a way to: · Change your feelings, and gain relief from distressing emotions. · To increase self-esteem and confidence. · To gain greater understanding both of yourself and of problems to be dealt with. · To regain the ability to cope with life, and be able to work and function effectively again. · To improve your relationships with others. Taken from Demystifying Therapy by Ernesto Spinelli (2012) Every client will have unique needs and wants from their counselling. Some may want just a few time-limited weekly sessions to deal with a specific problem. Others may prefer to start counselling with an open ended approach, unsure of the source of their distress but feeling that they can’t go on without addressing it. Whichever approach you choose, we will regularly review your progress to ensure you are getting what you need and want from the counselling relationship. What is Coaching Personal development coaching is a way in which the client and the coach focus on the client’s goals and together create pathways step by step, building motivation and enthusiasm to achieve them. It supports and encourages your creativity and problem solving and can be applied to all aspects of life, business management, work and career development.
