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.

Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) Counselling

An Employee Assistance Programme is a confidential support service available to assist employees with any difficulties or challenges they are experiencing at that particular time.

The purpose of an EAP is to provide employees with access to confidential counselling and information services to assist in dealing with a broad range of issues such as personal, work, financial or legal issues.

When employees are worried or concerned, it helps to have someone who will listen project planning process. When that person is a skilled counsellor or a specialist in a particular area, then you are taking the first step to resolving these worries or concerns.

Apart from receiving support, you will discover your own strengths, skills and resources.

Our EAP can assist your employees with difficulties in any of these areas:

  • Family issues
  • General information queries
  • Work related issues
  • Financial matters
  • Emotional concerns
  • Legal matters
  • Relationship difficulties

Are your staff members in need of some help in furthering their career or perhaps your company is in a period of transition. This may involve some life changes for your employees either through redeployment or even redundancy. All change in this regard involves a loss and this may be an emotional or traumatictime for those individuals who are involved.

Our counsellors have the necessary experience of guiding people through this difficult time as individuals and in a group situation by providing both one to one counselling and training/facilitation services to your employees. In addition to counselling we can provide training around their career such as skills identification, job search techniques, interview skills and preparation, presentation skills and other personal development elements as required.
