Although people often turn to counselling at low times within their life, my belief is that counselling can be used as a way of maintaining healthy mental wellbeing, similarly to eating well and exercising. And I strongly feel counselling is beneficial to all, not just to those whom have metaphorically hit the floor.
I believe that when self growth is limited from the many issues that life can throw up, we feel stuck and and at times lost. I genuinely believe that we need to feel ongoing personal growth in order to feel grounded and to feel true contentment within ourselves.
You may have found yourself at this page because a past issue has re-surfaced and your usual coping techniques are no longer working. And perhaps finding that the 'issue' has started to 'leak' and impact on daily life and relationships.
I often see clients who thought they had put something way behind them only to find that this 'something' has begun to re-surface, and leak into their daily lives. Often impacting on their behaviours and creating underlying tensions that may not present as the key issue, but manifest in other ways.
This 'leaking' can also manifest in a physical unwellness that you may not have previously linked to mental wellbeing with sleep, energy, motivation and mood affected.
