Anthony can provide professional assistance and guidance in resolving personal and psychological challenges. The counselling process helps to facilitate personal growth in students and staff by developing their psychological flexibility with challenges such as trauma, grief and loss, anxiety depression, eating concerns and much more. Scott Peck once said that life’s challenges do not simply go away. They must be worked through or else they remain, forever a barrier to the growth and development of the spirit.

Counselling is often the place where people begin to work through their challenges and find psychological healing. They do this by confronting what they must and changing what they can. This process can take many forms such as talk therapy, art therapy or play therapy, depending on the age, development or interest of the client. Counselling is not always confined to talk therapy with some students responding better to psychological intervention through pen and paper, kinetic sand or dolls and puppets. Whatever form counselling may take, it is always designed for growth and healing of the client.

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.
