There are times in our lives when we really need a trained ear and a safe place to go to unpack our troubles and find solutions. Individual counseling provides that place and that deep listening when… our relationship falls apart, or we realize we just repeated the same old dysfunctional pattern – again, or we feel stuck and unhappy with our lives. Often we know something is wrong but cannot find a way out of negative thinking and feeling – and that’s when having a skillful counselor can help.
Counseling and therapy are designed to help you to discover new understanding – about yourself and your life. If you are seeking to change what is no longer working, to understand what has been broken and mend it and to have support in learning new skills and behaviors, individual counseling is medicine for the soul.
Some of the issues that are often addressed in individual counseling include:
- Depression and anxiety
- Relationship break-ups
- Resolution of trauma – early childhood, medical and PTSD
- Quarter-life and mid-life crisis
- Healing after an affair
- Life coaching
Sometimes it’s hard to ask for help and even harder to feel worth the time, energy and money that therapy means. But just as you would seek professional help if something wasn’t working in your physical body, it is truly life-changing to support your emotional/mental body in healing with therapy.
As you explore past, present and future relationships, gain understanding about destructive patterns and how to change them and develop new confidence in yourself you begin to realize that exploring these issues is actually a journey – a journey into wholeness.
