ANXIETY AND STRESS

Anxiety has become a part and parcel of modern day living. For some this stress is manageable but for others it can result in panic attacks and manifest in somatic complaints or a constant overwhelming sense of doom. Identifying specific thoughts and situations that cause anxiety can go a long way towards conquering this handicap.

RELATIONSHIP ISSUES

The skills and techniques needed to have a good, healthy, loving relationship do not come to most people naturally. We have to consciously work at learning to master different ways to interact with our loved ones. Therapy can help build bridges and teach new skills that will foster relationships that last.

PERSONAL GROWTH

Life is full of changes and constantly requires us to adapt. An emotional and psychological upheaval is normal while going through a change and some of us have a harder time adapting. Even positive transitions tend to cause stress. Learning new life skills generally helps individuals to cope better.

WORK STRESS

Work place stress is normal and often leads to higher productivity. It is when stress becomes overwhelming, interfering with productivity and regular functioning that it impacts on success in the work place. Identifying stressors and learning new ways to manage our reactions to them can result in higher job satisfaction.

TRAUMA

People tend to react to present day situations in a way that has been learned during a traumatic past experience. These reactions inevitably incur the reliving of their trauma in both their thoughts and their actions. Helping clients understand these confusing reactions and teaching them techniques to help them to separate the past from the present can help them to feel more in control and to experience a sense of recovery.

DEPRESSION

Depression is a problem that is experienced by a huge number of people. It is characterised by low mood and a lack of interest in activities previously enjoyed. It affects a person’s thoughts, behaviours and feelings-damaging the individual’s sense of well-being. Counselling and psychotherapy can give hope and help people regain their desire to live.

NEGATIVITY

Having a negative mindset affects the way we think about ourselves and the way we look at the world and our relationships. It changes how we feel and respond to situations. Give yourself a chance to turn things around.

ANGER MANAGEMENT

Learning to manage anger is not just about controlling our destructing reactions to events- it is about understanding the source of the anger and creating a safe space this anger in healthy ways.

LOSS/GRIEF

Grief affects a person emotionally, psychologically, spiritually and even physically. Talking through the stages of grief helps to come to terms with the void a person may be feeling, helping them to adapt to a new way of life.

ABUSE

Abuse can be emotional, sexual, physical and even psychological. Teaching clients ways to be be assertive and helping them to feel safe /calm, building resources that will empower them , exploring the dynamic between the client and the abuser are al ways to help the client to build  self respect and a sense of identity.

EATING DISORDERS

Eating disorders are mainly seen in older children, teenagers and young adults. An eating disorder not only affects a person’s eating habits but also negatively impacts the body, emotions and ability t function. Helping clients to build a strong sense of self worth and to regain a sense of control are among the first steps back to health.
