Counselling and Psychotherapy is a way to have helpful and healing conversations with a therapist who has been specifically trained to listen, understand, and help you with a variety of life’s difficulties and worries.
This may include behaviours you would like to change, managing strong and difficult emotions, patterns of relating to others that you feel are not working for you in some way, beliefs about yourself that you feel you feel may be holding you back in some way, or ways of thinking that you may need to challenge.
Alternatively, things in your life may usually be pretty good, but sometimes something happens, and you feel you need extra support and a place to sort through what this event means for you.
The goal of counselling and psychotherapy is always to help you gain insight, find different ways to think about, approach and manage the difficulties you experience, and to find more helpful and satisfying ways to relate to yourself and others.
Individual therapy is a place just for you.
A confidential space to share and explore whatever you need support with.
This may be getting to know yourself better, managing symptoms of anxiety or depression, challenging unhelpful ways of seeing yourself or, managing relationships, or you may need support while experiencing a difficult life event.
Below are some of the difficulties or worries that you might seek help with. There will of course be other events or issues that impact you, these are just a few.
- Life Transitions
- Work problems
- FIFO life
Couple therapy, is a supportive place to explore any difficulties you may be experiencing in your relationship, or life circumstances that may be impacting the quality of your relationship.
The goal is to bring about positive change in your relationship.
This may be achieved by helping you to have calmer and more satisfying communication, working through hurt and resentment, addressing difficulties with intimacy and feelings of connectedness or developing ways to support each other through stressful times and events.
Below are just some of the difficulties and life events couples can experience that may impact their relationship:
- Hurt and resentment
- Life Transitions
- FIFO life
- Stress Anxiety and depression
- Family issues
- Difficult life events
- Loss of connection
- Impacts to intimacy
- Grief and loss
There are many challenges that may affect even the most solid of couples and substantial research shows that engaging in a relationship education program can markedly reduce the chance of these challenges impacting your relationship.
Relationship education is often completed by couples who are about to marry but can be helpful for any couple wanting to strengthen their relationship.
Engaging in relationship education can be an interesting and connecting experience for couples who have decided to commit to a long-term relationship.
Relationship education helps couples to understand themselves and each other, to explore their expectations and beliefs around their relationships and how these might impact their relationship.
I use a well-established and recognised relationship tool called Prepare-Enrich when working with couples who want to learn more about each-other and their relationship.
