Counselling generally focuses on finding strategies for coping with issues such as: managing anxiety, decision making, dealing with loss, coping with change, building self-esteem, and dealing with conflict.
Sometimes there are deeper issues beneath those that present initially and then psychotherapy becomes more relevant. An example would be someone who comes with a very harsh inner judge, anything he/she does is never good enough, then no amount of self-esteem building will last until the issue of the ‘inner-critic’ is worked through in psychotherapy. Interestingly, the inner critic is often protecting sequestered wounded parts of the self, lying in wait for healing until conditions are right.
I work with people dealing with a wide range of problems from: depression, anxiety, bereavement, stress, sexual abuse, anger issues, poor self-esteem, relationship difficulties, unresolved childhood issues, traumas of various kinds, existential and meaning of life concerns, sexual difficulties, and general difficulties in coping with life.
