Towards psychological wellbeing
Is there too much distress in your life? Counselling could help you find freedom from painful feelings/thoughts and unhelpful habits. It could help you get on better with yourself and enrich important relationships.
Even if you don't feel particularly whole, I would work with the whole you. This means exploring both the strengths that empower you and difficult experiences that can also be sources of learning and growth.
Befriending your body
One of the gifts of therapy is that it can help us feel more comfortable in our skins. As well as providing a space to talk, you may also be willing to do more active, sensory creative experiments or explore emotion balancing techniques like EFT. The stress management course I teach (see below) also gives you many opportunities to quietly reconnect with your body. As mind and body are one, over time these body-based balancing experiences could nurture wellbeing in your life.
Towards peaceful awareness
Are you searching for peace of mind? Taught since the 1930s, Autogenic Training (AT) is a wholistic, body based, self help system. It might be just what you're looking for.
Meeting once a week for eight weeks, with a follow up session about a month later, you learn a range of straightforward mindfulness techniques to promote relaxation and more active methods to release painful emotions. AT practices last between 10 seconds and 10 minutes and could bring many balancing and restoring moments into your life.
Ready to practise
You will get the most out of AT if you can commit to practising the new relaxation and self help techniques you learn each week for at least twenty minutes in total every day. Some people may need counselling or other support first to get to a good enough place to really benefit from this course.
Towards fulfilling work
Stuck in a rut? Careers guidance could help you find more meaningful options, new energy and greater clarity about how to move forwards.
It tends to be shorter term with practical actions between appointments. Typical topics include exploring career ideas, improving applications, mock interviews and writing (and carrying out) action plans.
Valuing your strengths
Making good use of your strengths is a core career development idea which has wider application. Are you making good use of your strengths, not only in your career but in all areas of your life? If not, this might be a valuable area to explore.
