Parenting (or caregiving) is one of the most important jobs you’ve taken on. But the person you’re caring for is going through some tough stuff, and the two of you aren’t getting along. You’re beating yourself up, because you keep screwing up your job, when all you want to do is help. You might even be coping with your own issues, in addition to helping them with theirs. You’re scared of the future, and sometimes even angry at the people you care for. You’re lonely and even burnt out, because others don’t understand.
You desperately want to get control over your own anxiety, in order to help someone else with theirs. You need to not feel so overwhelmed, in order to be present for another. Regardless of whether they want their own help, you want to learn more about how to help them.
In the safe space that counselling creates, lays the capacity to confront what scares you, and thereby promote change and growth. My style is reflective and relational, as experience has taught me that it is the only way to build trust. Having that trusting relationship allows you the courage to get out of your comfort zone and try something new, paving the way to a better life. Counselling can teach self-compassion (to honour your own truth), and empathy (to understand what is true for others in your life).
Featuring six different ways to meet, both in person and online. My passion is to design an accessible counselling service that meets your unique needs. It might be home visits, walk and talk therapy, email or video counselling, or more traditional approaches … visit my website to learn more!
