Counselling

Counselling therapy

Life comes with ups as well as downs for all of us, and while we are usually good at processing the happiness and joys of life, we sometimes have trouble dealing with the downs. Talking with friends and family is helpful, but there are times when those closest to us make it difficult for us to hear our own voice. Getting many differing opinions may also lead to confusion and additional stress.

Counselling offers a safe and confidential space for you to voice your concerns and difficulties while being heard. A space in which you can stand back from your everyday life and reflect on what you might wish to do to change things to make them better. A counsellor is supportive and non-judgemental, someone who strives to understand thoughts and feelings from your point of view.

People seek counselling for a wide variety of reasons:

  • Stressful or distressing experiences, currently or in the past, even in childhood, which need to be shared in a safe environment. These may include relocation to a new city, separation or divorce, loss of a loved one, an accident, or even witnessing something traumatic that is difficult to recover from.
  • A desire to change certain behaviours, like food cravings or addictions, excessive anger, overwhelming or uncontrollable thoughts, or certain social behaviours.
  • Support through a serious illness.
  • Feelings of depression or anxiety.
  • Feeling uncertain about a change in life path/career.
  • Counselling also serves as a guide for personal development, to expand awareness and grow into one’s full potential, and so can be beneficial for anyone.

As your counsellor I listen, and help you connect to your inner resources, so you can cope with and overcome any challenges you are experiencing and live your life in a way that is most meaningful and satisfying to you.

“It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.”

Gratitude - it's about the small stuff

“The root of joy is gratefulness… It is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful.” ― Brother David Steindl-Rast


Religions, philosophies, and age old wisdom have long held that gratitude is not only an indispensable human virtue, but an integral component of health, wholeness, and well-being.

Science has also slowly but surely come to the same conclusion; much scientific research now proves that cultivating gratitude has a large number of benefits. Gratitude improves psychological, emotional and physical well being, and it also leads to stronger relationships and communities.

Studies done by Prof. R. Emmons (University of California), reveal that:

In an experimental comparison, those who kept gratitude journals on a weekly basis exercised more regularly, reported fewer physical symptoms, felt better about their lives as a whole, and were more optimistic about the upcoming week compared to those who recorded hassles or neutral life events (Emmons & McCullough, 2003).

Many studies show that five-minute a day gratitude journal can increase your long-term well-being by more than 10 percent… which is the same impact as doubling your income!

Gratitude also strengthens our emotions: being grateful reduces negative feelings, helps us to have happier memories, and helps us to bounce back from stress.

Based on the concept that the root of joy is gratefulness, and on research that proves the multiple benefits of a regular practice of gratitude, this is an experiential and interactive workshop.

We will use EFT and Meditation to cultivate and deepen our sense of gratitude, delving into something new and exploring different aspects of gratitude every month. In the last workshop we discussed Dr. Dispenza’s concept of being grateful before the event – an interesting and thought provoking approach.

The goal of the workshop is to cultivate simple ways to bring more joy into our lives, and see how that can help to alleviate symptoms of stress and anxiety.
