What to expect at your first session
 
At your first session, don't feel pressured to explain everything surrounding your life and history.   You should come prepared to share your understanding of what is getting in the way of you living the life you're longing for, and what you'd like to see different as a result of attending counselling.
 
What you can look forward to 

Some of the benefits of counselling you can look forward to are:
 
  • Improved Sense of Self
  • Improved Confidence
  • Increased Clarity 
  • Tools and strategies for maintaining Mental Health
  • Improved Communication Skills
  • Overcoming Depression & Anxiety
  • Clear plan for improving life (personally, professionally, emotionally etc.)

Amazing lives inside of you, but it's up to you if you will live it out.  Don't delay.  Pick up the phone and book your initial appointment today!!!
 
A few questions to ask when considering professional counselling:
  • “Are you unsatisfied with the way your life is going right now?”
  • “Do you lack the motivation to go after the things you deeply desire?”
  • “Are there areas in your life (past and or present) which are affecting your potential?”
  • “Are you fed up of being misunderstood, mistreated, or unappreciated?”
  • “Are you ready to focus on the issues that are standing in the way of where you want to be?”
  • “Are you ready to make positive changes in your life, but don’t know where to begin”?

Signs you should see a therapist
 
  • Consistent and ongoing feelings of overwhelm 
  • Loss of interest in things previously enjoyed
  • Using substances to cope
  • Strained relationships
  • Getting negative feedback at work
  • Unable to stop thinking about past traumas experienced
  • Strong feelings of hopelessness 
  • Loved one expressing concern for your wellbeing
  • The things you've tried to cope are not working 

Working with a psychotherapist will help you explore these questions; and assist you in moving further on your journey towards health, wellness, and personal growth.
