Feeling Lost or Overwhelmed? Andrea Will Listen
Mood issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, anger, or situational challenges, can flatten us. Counselling can simply feel like a conversation, yet talking can validate your feelings, relieve pressure, provide new perspective and help you learn new choices about how to manage your moods and your life. Clients report feeling "in the driver's seat" when they finish counselling. Andrea will share strategies that have worked for others, eventually finding a fit for ones that work for you. Therapy is highly individualized. Though many clients report relief after even one session, counselling can take place over weeks, months or even years. You are in charge, you determine how long you wish to be in counselling.
- Self Esteem
- Childhood Trauma
Trauma and Loss
For those clients dealing with childhood trauma, or loss of a loved one, job, relationship, or health, there is much benefit in receiving experienced support and understanding while you process your feelings and reflect on the meaning of the changes to your world.
