When psychologists walk in your shoes you take steps toward change together.
Everyone experiences times of stress, sadness, loss and conflict. For some people, the feelings are very intense and difficult to shift. This often occurs when there has been a traumatic experience such as a separation, illness or death of a loved one, relationship breakdown, job loss, and exposure to violence or abuse. However you might simply feel overwhelmed by daily stresses including parenting, issues at work or family conflict. Drugs and alcohol can also be a problem. Suicidal thoughts might arise. Speaking with a psychologist can help you to work through your problems and lead a more meaningful life. The sooner that you get help, the better the outcome.
Counselling allows you to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe and supportive environment. It can offer hope for the future when there seems to be none. Your psychologist can offer guidance and provide the opportunity for you to explore past and current difficulties in depth, without judgement. Often people feel alone with their problems and there can be a sense of relief in having shared parts of yourself and your experiences that you might not have expressed before. Counselling can help you to make sense of your problems and see a way out of them.
