How to Get Best Help from Counselling
Looking for solutions to life’s problems? Ready to talk to a Counsellor? This short PODCAST explains 7 important steps essential for getting the best help from Counselling.
Help sought early hastens wellness recovery
Trauma, depression, anxiety, lingering sickness, grief, loneliness and relationship breakdown are common to humankind. Our thinking and behaviour can alter because of any one those conditions. For perspective, did you know that each year close to 5 million Australians will encounter a mental health challenge?
Seeking professional help early has shown links to shortened recovery time and improved quality of recovery. Reportedly though, too many people delay or go without treatment. Should we therefore be surprised that mental illness is our nation’s third leading cause of disability burden?
I think you’d agree that in life, most of us experience our share of out-of-the-blue curveballs. Times when our wellbeing becomes shaken to the core.
Tough times simply don’t discriminate. Even the most resilient persons can find themselves overwhelmed.
What’s important is getting the right support and guidance as soon as possible. It is paramount for improving the likelihood of faster restoration to a healthier, happier, and more purpose-filled path.
As a nationally registered counsellor and accredited member of the Australian Counselling Association, I offer you the convenience of being able to talk with a professionally trained therapist from the privacy of your own home, or virtually anywhere else, that’s distraction free and comfortable. Accessible via phone or online video.
A Toowoomba Counselling consulting suite is also available for clients preferring face-to-face sessions.
Solutions for Living an Enriching and Purposeful Life
About Counselling Benefits
The benefits of counselling are difference-making in times of unexpected challenges, change or crisis. A professional, insightful and non-judgemental counsellor can help equip and empower you to more smoothly navigate life’s problems, as well as opportunities.
Counselling also enables an enhanced understanding of your own thoughts, feelings and responses. That knowledge supports positive, healthier self-care and fosters better interpersonal skills. Counselling is a therapeutic way of seeing life from new perspectives. An experienced counsellor can guide you towards strengthening your resilience and gaining greater self-mastery.
So, embrace counselling, and you’ll be a step closer to real solutions for living an enriching and purposeful life.
