Your Choice Counselling - Bursledon Counselling

Food for Thought........

Some of us make ourselves prisoners by wearing shackles that we put on ourselves, in the name of protection and fear. But you have to release yourselves so you can move around."
Dr. Maloney Hunter-Lowe

...........................................................

Our emotional health affects our physical wellbeing, e.g. when we get nervous we may have butterflies in our tummies.

We hold emotional tension in our bodies and this can affect tummies, backs, and chest among others.

If you have a tense, knotty feeling in your tummy and don't know why, talking to a counsellor and exploring your emotions can help relieve some symptoms, and therefore help you to relax more.

Talking to a counsellor can help.....

Make an appointment to talk to a qualified counsellor who can help with many issues including low self-esteem and relationship issues.

what is counselling

Person-centred counselling is about exploring and empowerment.

It is a process whereby you and the counsellor work together on the issues that you bring, in a safe, confidential and non judgemental way, so as to help you  understand what may be happening to you in your life.

It is not about giving advice but enables you to access your own resources and find a way through your problems.

Counsellors are trained to look beyond presenting problems to possible underlying causes, and can help you explore difficult, confusing and often painful emotions and experiences.

The aim of the therapeutic process is to enable you to better understand and accept yourself, and thus empower you to make your own choices and control your own life so that you can achieve autonomy and personal growth.  

Person–centred counselling enables you to develop and grow in your own way, to strengthen and expand your own identity and to become the person that you 'really' are independently of the pressures of others to act or think in particular ways.
