Antonio Giacalone Advanced Dip CPCAB CBT MBACP (registered)
It happens in life that you feel no one understand you. No one can see you or what you are experiencing. Every day it’s a struggle a challenge. You look around you and see the world does not stop, people are immersed in their own problems and no one has the time to listen and understand you. You may realise that life it’s not what you intended it to be. You feel disappointed, frustrated, anxious or depressed, scared, alone. In despite all of this you want something better for you. You want to gain more knowledge and understanding of why you are in discomfort. Why is this happening to you. This desire you have its you your internal compass that wants to drive you to a better destination. Most of our suffering comes from our thoughts, how we interpret them, what meaning we give them and what we choose to believe. Of course, sometimes we may feel we don't have a choice especially when we feel emotionally exhausted and barely believe and trust in our ability to be resilient. In my practice I will give you the time and space to discuss and explore whatever you desire, whatever it concerns you that gives you discomfort or indeed joy. Joy is also important. Unfortunately, when we are in discomfort in discordance with the world, we tend to forget what we also love and what gives as hope, what makes us smile and feel part of everything.
In my initial consultation we will have the chance to get each other and, by the end, we will decide if it is appropriate to work together. If we do decide to work together my suggestion is to work for 6 sessions with a session to review and to explore if it is necessary to continue. This is of course all explored in the safety of a confidential space.
Key words used in my counselling practice– Emphatic- Understanding- Supportive- Challenging, and most of all ethical and confidential. In the years I have worked with people I have learned great strategies and can offer you many different tips. You will then have the choice and opportunity to use them. I take my work seriously however in the time we work together there will be opportunity to also smile.
