What To Expect in Counselling
It can feel intimidating to seek the help of a counsellor, especially when you are feeling stuck, inadequate, and deeply in need of the right answers, but when you show up for counselling you will find a relaxed atmosphere, a place to freely talk, and new possibilities for your life.
Counselling Theories I Use:
Your thoughts, feelings, body, relationship, circumstances and your spiritual life are all important things to look at when recovering your health and life through counselling, so the therapies I use support this belief. All these areas are connected and changing one part of your life can have a positive impact on the other areas. Not everyone has a spiritual life and that is ok, the recovery plan will be designed to fit your life.
Some of the counselling methods I use include:
Attachment - our attachment styles plays a roll in our relationship with ourselves and others.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy - looks at a persons thoughts to see how they effect emotion and behaviour.
Inner Child Work - wounding often begins during our developmental years and can lead to such things as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, & having a strong inner critic. Inner Child Work heals the original wound, which shifts the issue we are working on.
Positive Psychology - moves the focuses to what is right, on what resources and skills individuals do have, and on what is present and can lead to happiness.
Mindfulness - paying attention, on purpose to help build awareness that helps you make better choices, lower your stress/anxiety and rewire your brain which changes your thinking and emotions.
Self-Compassion - creating a healthy and connected relationship with yourself which fosters healing, greater security, improved choices and better relationships.
Self- Love - your relationship with yourself is the foundation of adult wholeness/
Solution focused and client centred. Sometimes you lead, sometimes I will. It's a collaboration.
Body Therapy - focus on the body to release stress, trauma and aid the nervous system.
Dialectical Behaviour Therapy is a skilled based therapy towards distress tolerance, mindfulness, Interpersonal Therapy and emotion regulation.
