New Year! New You?!

Well, it's the 5th of January of a brand new year and maybe that list of resolutions you made for yourself is now looking a bit daunting?!

Maybe it's not about making drastic changes in our lives but looking at what small changes we could make to help us feel more fulfilled or content with our lot?  Or maybe that is the crux of the matter...not being content with your lot?

Change of any kind can seem daunting, even a little bit scary but also, changes can be positive.  Afterall, if you're feeling that something is not quite right in your life then making a change surely would be a positive thing to do?

Men and Women Can Communicate...

...we just need to learn how!  I have seen many couples recently and the main problem to overcome is the way in which they communicate.  By the end of the first session, it is patently obvious that they are very much in love with each other but are just feeling angry, tired and frustrated because they just cannot find a way to communicate what they are feeling to each other, what they need from each other and end up thinking that there is no future...wrong!
I strongly urge couples who are feeling this way to give couples counselling a try.

Dealing with disappointment, time to take stock of your life?

Reaching a point in your life where you might be thinking, where exactly am I in my life?  Is this where I wanted or thought I would be?  Then perhaps realising you don't like the answers to these questions can trigger feelings of disappointment, disillusionment and even depression.

There might not be a clear reason for reaching this point in your life and feeling this way but it can also be a result of a relationship break up, particularly a long term one, where you didn't expect it to end or even have to start again.

Why counselling instead of chatting to a friend?

When something is deeply troubling you, do you run through a mental checklist of your friends or family members you feel you can talk to and decide which one will listen to you properly, really hear what you have to say?  Which one will respond in the way you want them to?  Will they offer advice and solutions to your problem when all you really want to do is be heard and find your own way through it?

The difference really is that a person-centred counsellor will offer you time and space to explore your troubling thoughts and feelings.
