Because Happiness Matters
Sometimes people want counselling for clear and specific reasons, and other times it seems unclear why, but there's a need to talk to someone who isn't involved in every day life; someone who isn't going to judge and who can help with seeing things in a different light, from a different perspective.
Counselling is a contracted, confidential, helping relationship. I listen carefully, remain objective, and help you improve your situation by letting you think out loud, over time, in a safe and non-judgmental environment.
The ultimate goal of counselling is to clarify and address the issues which made you seek counselling in the first place. It's not about me giving you advice or getting you to do things that you don't want to do. It's about you to figure out how you would like to move forward, the way you want to do. If you want to be generally happier, you might be interested in reading the section on Happiness.
The general approach to counselling I prefer to use is a person-centered, humanistic approach. On average, using this approach tends to make a large amount of change over long periods of time. Post-therapy gains are usually stable, and people who participate in humanistic therapies generally show substantially more change over time. After the sessions conclude, you're more likely to be able to keep the changes you've made, as well as show continued growth in your life independently, over time.
Personal assistance, resources, information, and inspiration for your personal development. Increase your happiness; learn and practice mindfulness; get support through counselling; get life coaching to help you achieve your goals. Find your best possible self and do everything you can to be that person.
