M. Erasmus (Magna), Dip Level 7 . MBACP
Life offers us many wonderful and enjoyable moments. At times life might offer us a different kind of experience. Some experiences and moments might be tiring, stressful and depleting. We might go through times when life feels very challenging, we might feel that we are struggling to get through day to day living. During these times we experience thoughts, feelings and body sensations that feel uncomfortable and we might feel that we are stuck and we are unsure how to deal with it all.
Perhaps you are facing great challenges or an accumulation of small challenges, or perhaps you have experienced a life changing event, suffer with depression, anxiety, feeling sad, struggling with food, or just feel challenged by life. Or perhaps you might feel your life lacks meaning or sense that there is something missing.
Counselling can help you give voice to your pain and heartbreak. It offers a safe, confidential space where you can voice difficult thoughts and experiences, where you will be heard and supported.
How I can help you:
The sessions and work will be tailored around what you need not just in the moment, but also what you perhaps needed in the past and what we can put in place for your life to feel different going forward. I am an integrative therapist, which means I draw from many models of therapy to assist you in the way that is going to be most helpful to you.
During the sessions I am there to listen and to help you make sense of the things that feel unclear. I am not there to offer advice, but to help you find the answers within that will be helpful to you and the things you find difficult. Together we will find ways for your life to feel better and for your well being to improve.
I work holistically. So we will not just look at what you think and feel but also what your body has been carrying as our bodies that house our feelings, thoughts and experiences. In working holistically we can give voice to what your bodies have been struggling to let go of.
I am there to support you during our time together. Having someone to talk to and to know that you have a safe space can make all the difference in us dealing with the difficult situations we might find ourselves in.
The work will be open ended. You can see me for as long as you need. Sometimes we can benefit from short term therapy and at other times we might need the support for longer.
