Counselling

Counselling is a professional activity that utilise an interpersonal relationship to enable people to develop self understanding and to make changes in their lives.
It is based on an interpersonal relationship between the client and the counsellor which helps them develop a better understanding about themselves and then solve their problems.

Professional counsellors help individuals explore and resolve issues that are interpersonal, intrapsychic or personal in nature. They do so within the boundaries of a clearly drafted and principled relationship. The role of a counsellor is to focus on specific problems, helping you make changes in your life and fostering your wellbeing.

In every moment of your life, you create the direction and content of every moment of your life.

If you honour Self, you honour Life, if you honour Life, Life will Honour you.

Michael J. Roads

Simple enough, but profound. To honour self is to respect yourself. To respect yourself is to appreciate yourself. To appreciate yourself is to care for yourself. To care for yourself is to attend to your wellbeing. To attend to your wellbeing is to eat and drink with awareness. To be aware of yourself is to honour yourself . . . and so the cycle will continue. In no way are we empowered or regenerated by thoughts of self-criticism or self-judgement, or ‘should do better’ etc. These reduce us, something we do not need, nor do we need people in our lives whose remarks and casual comments reduce us.
