Core Counselling Needs

Grief and Loss

Loss is not just a death, the obvious perpetrator of grief. It’s a relationship. It’s some part of yourself which is damaged or stripped from you. It can be developmental – your career is busted; you are denied love perhaps as a child; your greatest love abandoned you; many ways…. It grips you, and suddenly bursts into your being. Something of great value to yourself is denied, broken, or lost. Consumes you. Grief has many colours, bringing many emotions into play. Your time in grief can be long and distressing for more than just you…. The journey can be hard for you, and those around you…. True friends will be found out….
How to let go?…. How to move on?…. How to live again

Relationship and Conflict

Relationship is an enduring alliance between two people, and within groups, where there is an expectation that each person share, and have respected, some aspects of their revealed ‘self’. At the same time one receives and acknowledges the other party, with the aim of gaining value in one’s own life. Nothing is easy. Starting relationships can be hard. When you’re in, the other party doesn’t uphold your values… You had a relationship but discovery has changed things. Mistakes have been made, but benefits of relationship out-weigh severance.
How to master understanding of self, revealing self to connect – but maintain safety and balance ? And now there’s this mess already….

Family Therapy

Family Therapy is about whole of family and the dynamics occurring within the family. The goal is to assist each member of the family to process and overcome issues – which the family is experiencing as a whole. Whilst the family’s challenges may be focused on an individual, there is a need to better understand the dynamics in the situation and its effects on all. Each member is coping, or not, in different ways. Family goals need to be jointly developed, embraced, owned, and coping strategies learned to break destructive patterns.
How to find a compromise, whilst maintaining values and order in self and life?…. How to teach, when still learning?…. How to correct and admonish misdemeanour, and maintain loving relationship?….

Abuse

Abuse is intentional action which harms or injures another person. It can be physical, emotional or spiritual. It is predicated to manipulate, dominate and control. Abuse is complex, often subtle, devious, with threat of, and fear of its imminence, as powerful as the act. You might not realize its extent, and scope, whilst the perpetrator may be acting unconsciously out of their own insecurities and needs. In the office. In the home. With ‘friends’. Victim or perpetrator or both….
Love conquers fear. Love is not stupid. Love can be blind.
How to develop coping strategies to eliminate the threat; to repair the damage; to heal; to determine way forward?….
