All of us face challenges that we struggle to make sense of. We all experience life changes, transitions and loss, and it’s at those times that we may feel 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. We all differ, face different circumstances and have differing needs. 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 can help us make sense of them and often enables us to see things from a different perspective. Friends and family members can be a great support to us, but may not 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.

My own children are all adults now and one thing I can vouch for is that childhood passes very quickly. 

Dashed Expectations

For some school-leavers (and their parents) the next few weeks will be a tense time as they await their OP results. Some will have planned what they want to do for a career and know exactly what OP they need to gain entrance to a specific course. After that, comes the wait to find out which course they’ve been accepted into. Tense times, indeed for some.

Transitioning To A New Season Of Life

This Friday marks a very special day for our graduating year 12 students. Having spent more than 2/3 of their young lives at school, on Friday, they say farewell and start the transition to the next season of life. Like all changes, there are multiple sides. Change can be exciting, scary and stressful at the same time. As they wait to hear news of their future options, some may start to feel quite stressed.
