About Jenny Billingham

Mueller Community Church Counsellor, Jenny Billingham is available for parents, families, students and staff at Mueller College. All of us face challenges that we struggle to make sense of. Life changes, transitions and loss can leave us feeling isolated. Loss isn’t just losing someone close. It can include loss of a relationship, job, health, home, dreams and expectations to name a few. Stress, anxiety, family problems, decision making, and concerns about work are a few of the issues people face. Counselling allows a safe place to voice your thoughts, fears and feelings. Voicing them aloud to another person helps you make sense of them, enabling you to see things from a different perspective. Friends and family members can be a great support to us, but may be unable to provide an objective point of view. A counsellor won’t tell you what to do, but may help you consider choices, decisions and changes to enable you to live your life more fully. Counselling doesn’t need to be long-term – in fact a single session may be all that’s needed. Sometimes, though, more is needed over a period of weeks or months. Counselling can assist you to journey towards change and growth in the life challenges you face. Phone 3897 2706 or 0427 876 396 for an appointment. (Please leave a message if the phone is unattended and your call will be returned at the earliest convenience). Respect and confidentiality are always assured. Jenny Billingham (MCouns, Grad.Cert.

Marriage – made in heaven. Really?!

When a couple marry, expectations are high - their marriage is going to be different! “We aren’t going to fight or disagree… Our love is going to last forever and forever and we’re going to live happily ever after… My partner may have a couple of teeny weeny flaws, but that’ll change soon after we marry… I’m never going to feel sad or lonely again…Marriage is 50/50…”

Anger

In my work, certain topics seem to come up time and time again (with different people). Anger seems to be an issue that touches all of us in one way or another – we experience the anger of others, we become angry with others or most of us probably fit into both groups at times!

Pressing Pause

“Do more!”  “Be More!” “Get more!”  “Never Give Up!”  “Push to Reach Your Goals!” “Stop Slacking Off!”  Our devotion to perpetual busyness is not healthy, and if we’re not careful can lead to burnout.
