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 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.

Sexuality Counselling

The most secretive part of oneself, the private self, containing all the excluded and hidden desires and impulses. There is a deep wound for both men and women around our sexuality; it is hard to bring this to the surface. Fears, taboo’s hidden desires are cloaked in shame. Society mirrors this with how we should be to fit into and conform; public persona can hide a private experience around our sexuality. To begin to explore our sexuality can feel deeply exposing, a sense of nakedness and vulnerability and fears. Stripping the layers away to the most hidden parts of ourselves. At its core feelings of annihilation, destruction and death can be experienced. However, our sexuality is also our creator, to sit in the fire holds the huge potential for transformation.

Sexual energy is everywhere and in everything, depending on how open you are to this truth and the charge your sexual energy provokes in yourself or others can feel deeply disturbing and frightening. Panic may arise with a sense of exposure, confusion and feelings of being out of control. These experiences are often triggered to the surface more in adolescent visit here. The adolescents who begins to open in this way can find themselves trapped within deep fears, isolation and loss, without language to express these powerful feelings. Drinking and drugs can offer a temporary solution to numb panic.

The adolescent learns ways to cut off from the fear and arrives in adulthood with coping mechanisms, which function fairly well in society. However hidden in the recess of the unconscious is the forgotten parts which make themselves known in many different forms in our lives. Sexual dysfunction, difficulties to reach orgasm, deep inhibited shyness to engage sexually, charged sexual energy directed outwards in a compulsive desire for sex. There are many ways that our sexuality is calling us back through loss of aliveness and disconnections.

The path to reclaim our aliveness at the core of our sexuality is often a rocky one. Twists and turns, blind corners, dead ends, cliff edges are part of the journey. Yet the gifts in reclaiming the deep masculine and feminine within the journey of our sexuality is too many to express in words
