Is it hard to talk about your problems with people around you?
Barbara is an experienced and supportive counsellor assisting Teenagers, Individuals, Couples and Families to overcome life’s struggle. She has a keen interest in Young people's issues.
Barbara is a Certified Relate Practitioner and a College and Secondary school counsellor.
She also delivers workshops in secondary schools, helping teenagers to deal with anger issues caused by family breakdown, bullying or an increasingly pressurised school environment.
The work is collaborative and confidential; short term or longer term, depending on her clients’ needs. She offers an integrative approach in a non-blaming, non-judgmental context, supporting her clients to explore the best suited solutions to achieve their therapeutic goal.
Her work with her clients explore the following steps.
Step 1: Why do I feel like this? Exploring the roots of the problem,becoming aware of your unwanted thoughts and responsive unhelpful behaviours
Step 2: What are my options? Through conversation, you will feel empowered to shift from a position of being stuck and feeling hopeless to a position where you have a choice to change or to accept things can't change.
Step 3: The final phase is to start thinking differently, controlling your unwanted thoughts, behaviours. Therapy will give new tools that will help you choose to think, act, interact in a new more fulfilling way.
