Counselling is a way to help you with a wide variety of mental health and emotional challenges. Counselling can help eliminate or control troubling symptoms so you can function better, increase your feeling of well-being, and begin your recovery journey.
I apply a variety of counselling approaches and adapt the approach to fit the needs of my clients.
I've found the following counselling approaches to be highly effective, and I apply them while working with clients:
Counselling sessions are typically held once a week for 50 to 60-minutes. Clients share personal feelings and thought in an open and supportive environment.
Counselling can be short-term (a few sessions), dealing with immediate issues, or long-term (months), dealing with long-standing and more complex issues.
Counselling can help eliminate or manage troubling symptoms so you can function better, increase your well-being, and recover.
Issues helped by counselling include difficulties in coping with daily life, the impact of trauma, medical illness, or loss, like the death of a loved one; and specific mental health issues, like depression or anxiety.
Coaching helps people lead more fulfilled and meaningful lives. Beginning with a focus on what already works for you. Coaching will enable you to identify and optimize your values and strengths. Look at the big picture of your life so you can fine-tune and adjust the path you are on.
Life Coaching encourages deep reflection about yourself and your life to increase personal insight and awareness. Apply this new understanding to make clear, informed, and fresh choices.
Finally, coaching is about committing to actions that will create real, lasting change and move you towards a more meaningful, happy, and fulfilling life.
The coach does not label or view a client as fraught with dysfunctions. Instead, the coach engages the client in a process that guides them to the realization that we all experience both healthy and less than healthy reactions in response to the world around us. In many settings and with a creative variety of experiments, the coach and client explore the personal life operating system, the client is currently using.
Coaching sessions are typically held once a week for 50 to 60-minutes. Clients share personal goals, dreams, values, emotions, and thoughts in an open and supportive environment. Coaching sessions explore the present and supercharge clients discover effective ways to achieve their goals and dreams in their lives.
Coaching can be short-term (a few sessions), dealing with immediate matters, or long-term (months), dealing with more complex and longer-term goals.
The personal benefits of coaching are wide-ranging and can positively impact an individual’s career if they are engaging with their coach. This process can help develop individuals across a wide range of needs and can even benefit them on a personal level. Coaching boosts confidence, improves work performance, and builds effective communication skills.
The great benefit of coaching is that you are very likely to see quick, positive results as an outcome. Coaching is interactive and co-creative– which means you create your plan collaboratively with your coach. People tend to learn and adopt new habits more easily when they are actively engaged in an open, caring, empathetic, and collaborative learning process.
