10 ways to know you might need Counselling…

Counselling is a professional service that supports people to develop better understanding of themselves and others, address life difficulties and make the changes they want in their lives.

If you notice any of these things going on, don’t wait until they grow into crisis.

Seeking help sooner, rather than later could be the best thing you do for yourself in 2020.

1. You consistently and constantly operate in a state of overwhelm

2. You can’t seem to make simple decisions

3. Your emotions are increasingly out of control

4. You lose your temper easily, at your children, loved ones and strangers

5. You are stuck and find yourself increasingly frustrated about it

6. You think your pain/loss is not as important as someone elses OR You think your pain/loss is more important than someone elses

7. You feel as though no one else understands

8. You simply need to be heard / feel listened to

9. Your moods go up and down

10. You find yourself more cynical than you used to be


When is the right time to seek Counselling?

Actually, there’s no exact right time or one reason to seek professional time with a Counsellor. Every person is unique, our experiences are different and our overall lifescope individual.

Emotional distress is not measured on a heirarchy of better or worse. Everyone is affected in different ways. Sad is sad, no one’s is more or less important than another.


If you’re asking, it’s probably the right time

If you’re not feeling at peace with life and the events that have been happening, it could be the right time for you.

If you notice yourself out of sorts, with fluctuating moods and constant tiredness, it could be the right time for you.

If you’re finding it difficult to sleep at night, it could be the right time for you.

If you have trouble making basic decisions, planning your day or getting off Facebook, it could be the right time for you.
