What is Counselling?

Counselling aims to help you explore and clarify problems and issues that matter to you. It may help you develop resources and skills to cope with difficulties. It could also help you to get through a distressing time in your life.

We, the counsellors, listen to what you are really saying, accepting and understanding where you are at and respecting your feelings. We will not tell you what to do, but we can help you to come to your own decisions. Counselling is not only about problems, it also offers opportunities to get to know yourself better and to develop as a person.

What we do

We offer professional assistance to people who are troubled – whether in their personal life or at work. Our team of  counsellors/psychotherapists offer a range of approaches to suit your individual needs. The aim of talking with a counsellor is to help you make sense of what is going on in your life. Take your first step to that help today and find a suitable counsellor, contact us now.

What is the difference between Counselling, Psychotherapy and Therapy?

Counselling tends to associate with more short term and focused work, and Psychotherapy explores issues in greater depth and requires more commitment to longer term work. It aims to reach the underlying, often unconscious, causes of distress. Therapy is a word that covers both Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Think of your mind like a ball of wool — a  tangled and really knotted ball of wool. These are your thoughts, your memories, your ways of coping with the world and includes your feelings. If you took that knotted ball of wool and tried to make something worthwhile out of it, you may come to an sudden stop fairly fast. But what if someone comes long and helps you to unravel this ball of wool, and all that that entails?

The root of our depression etc can often be so personal and deep. So delicate that we often cannot see things clearly enough in our heads to unravel our thoughts, memories and feelings.

Psychotherapy offers someone who can gently guide you and ask the right questions in order to help you make sense of it all.

Don’t forget, we go to school to learn how to write, add up and identify parts of the body – but we are not taught how to cope with our thoughts and feelings.

Suffering from Anxiety?

The manifestations of anxiety may range from mild apprehension to fully-fledged panic attacks and phobias. Panic attacks can often be associated with agoraphobia project planning tools. Many sufferers of agoraphobia can become prisoners in their own homes. Phobia’s involve fear being directed towards one specific object, activity or situation, which is then avoided. For example fear of spiders, flying, enclosed spaces and heights. Many people suffer silently and secretly for years.

Physical symptoms

Palpitations, chest pains, faintness, being flushed, sweating, shortness of breath, hyperventilation, choking, difficulties in breathing, dry mouth, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, headaches, vertigo, tremors, restlessness, panic attacks, sense of fear.

Psychological symptoms

Things around you appearing unreal, sounds being distorted, speeding or slowing of thoughts, tension, distractibility, insomnia, anxiety concern for others.

Causes

There is no single explanation for the occurrence of anxiety disorders. Several factors may need to be considered. Early upbringing, inner conflicts, anxiety as a learned response, physical factors, self-talk, coping behaviour and social determinants. Often the best explanation for the causes of anxiety will more than likely take all these factors into account.

How counselling can help

Coping with anxiety can be a lonely and isolating experience. Counselling can help you develop your own coping mechanisms in order to deal with anxiety and strategies to overcome negative thinking patterns. Part of the work in dealing with anxiety is exploring any possible underlying issues causing or maintaining the symptoms.
