Daniel L - I got a lot out of the process

5/5

Feb 2020

Thanks so much for the additional information. It is really useful to cement in the process we undertook a week ago. I got a lot out of the process, and I think I am now in train, albeit the first week was more about deep sleep and dreaming than the bodily focus I committed to. Thank you again. I look forward to seeing you in the coming weeks.

Erin D - Amazing Session

5/5

Aug 2021

I just wanted to say thank you Rebecca for the wonderful session I had with you. I was buzzing afterwards, feeling oneness with myself and the universe. In the week following, I have felt more clarity and calm around just ‘being’. Thanks for bringing this out of me, you’re amazing.

Susan - Online Session

June 2021

Thank you so much for our Online Session. I wasn’t sure what it was going to be like not being in the same room, but I think it was even more powerful. I felt so empowered today at work and trusted my thoughts and actions. This is so different to how I used to feel. I am excited about my next session.

Is counselling right for you?

Counselling can be helpful when people are having difficulty coping with stressors in their life and need someone objective to talk about how they’re feeling about these situations. When people feel like there is no one else who would understand what they’re going through, counselling offers a non-judgemental space where clients are free to talk about their concerns.

One of the most significant benefits of counselling is that it can help you better understand yourself. You may find that counselling encourages you to reflect on previous behaviours, relationships, and experiences in order to gain a deeper understanding of your motivations and thought processes. This kind of self-reflection can improve your ability to communicate with others because you’ll be more aware of what triggers certain feelings or behaviours in you or how other people are likely to react when they’re around you. When clients feel like they have improved interpersonal skills, this often leads them to seek out new relationships (including romantic ones). They might decide that they would want to meet someone who has similar interests or values as themselves; perhaps they pursue hobbies related to their interests and values, become more active in their community, or decide to sign up for a class that they’ve been afraid of taking.

Counselling also helps people better understand themselves by providing an accurate picture of where they currently are with regards to emotional and mental health. People might discover through counselling sessions that there are certain triggers that make them feel anxious or stressed out or that they tend to rely on unhealthy coping strategies such as self-medication in order to deal with certain kinds of stress. Through counselling, people might become more aware of when they need to seek professional help for mental health concerns and the kinds of treatments available to address these concerns.

Finally, counselling helps people acknowledge that there are other options they can pursue should they decide that a relationship is no longer healthy or that a job is not the right fit for them. A counsellor may encourage clients to think about what it would be like if their life circumstances were different and this helps clients realize that it makes sense just giving things a try (e.g., “I might not enjoy day trading but cause them to feel sad, anxious, angry, etc., as well as what things calm them down and make them happy (e.g., “When I’m around my family, I don’t experience any anxiety at all”). These realisations help people learn how their emotions work and provide them with the opportunity to learn new coping skills on how to manage these feelings when they come up. For example, if someone discovers that they have trouble falling asleep at night, they might try taking up meditation or other mindfulness practices instead of relying on medication.
