It is common to endure periods when we feel unable to cope with what life has thrown our way. This can be an overwhelming and lonely experience. No matter what the source of this feeling is, recognizing that help is needed and making the decision to seek that help is important, but certainly not easy.
How Counselling Can Help
Perhaps you are experiencing changes, big or small. Maybe you've recently experienced a life transition. Or, it could be that a past or recent trauma is creating challenges in terms of how you’ve been functioning. You may be experiencing symptoms of depression or anxiety that are presenting obstacles in your every day activities. Perhaps there have been some significant changes or challenges within your key relationships. It might be that you have felt unsure of how to navigate some heavy emotions, and you desire more clarity and movement in terms of processing them.
Depending on the issues you face, your counsellor can assist you in gaining more awareness and a fuller understanding of resolving conflicts in your life, or simply in offering assistance in gaining greater self-confidence and self-care. Through purposeful discussion, you will begin to see problems from a different perspective and learn the strategies you need to help work through your issues.
