Types of Counselling
Individual Counselling is aimed at helping you to cope with the ups and downs of everyday life, with stresses that can cause anxiety and depression; it’s about helping you to heal from the negative things that have happened such as losses, separation & divorce, family conflict, negative, or unpleasant experiences. Individual Counselling can assist in coping with stressful life situations, work problems, grief, emotional distress or relationship difficulties.
Anxiety Counselling helps you reduce fear, doubt, and worry. Anxiety counselling can help you with some of these issues: social anxiety, panic attacks, general anxiety, fear and phobias.
Depression Counselling: Talking to someone is the best first step. There is a good chance that talking to almost anyone about depression will reveal an understanding response, often with a shared story of another experience of depression. Almost all of us have connections with some form of depression or love someone who has struggled with depression. When we begin talking about depression, we learn that we are not alone and that help is out there.
Life Transition Counselling is to help people work through major life adjustments such as a big geographical move, a loss of a job, a break up of a relationship, or for example, the transition into parenthood.
Asperger’s Counselling is to help you gain a better understanding of your Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis and how it may impact various areas of your life.
Weight Loss Counselling is helpful to people who are on the road to loosing weight. A new study by the Journal of the American Medical Association finds that people who have lost weight are more likely to keep it off if they chat periodically with a counsellor rather than turning to a website that provides advice or getting no support at all.
Trauma Counselling: Counselling for trauma helps people work through their thoughts, the story, their nervous system, energy, motivation, and ability to be present in your life now.
Career counselling is similar in nature to traditional counseling, however, the focus is generally on issues such as career exploration, career change, personal career development and other career related issues.
Career counselling is the process of helping individuals select a path and make a plan to help them to get into the job they want. A career counsellor helps individuals get into a career that is suited to their aptitude, personality, interest and skills.
Executive Counselling provides an opportunity to address concerns that are affecting your business or corporate life and may also be impacting on your personal life. At times you may feel that you cannot share your concerns, problems or anxieties with your colleagues or subordinates because of a sense of vulnerability or the concern that it may damage your image in the organization or your career progress. It helps to have a safe place to talk about your pressing issues. This is especially important if you are feeling isolated in your organizational hierarchy. Although on the surface you may appear to be a model for their company, inwardly you may be experiencing deep emotion and despair. Partners and friends seldom understand the intricate processes of the management structure or the tasks at hand, and probably do not have the expertise to support you in taking the right course of action.
Compulsive hoarding is listed in the Diagnostic Statistical Manual-IV (DSM) as a symptom of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), which is characterized by the overriding compulsion to acquire new possessions and store them in excessive and often dangerous quantities. Some compulsive hoarders collect anything and everything, some will collect only particular items, such as books (these people are known as bibliophiles) and some will even collect living creatures (known as animal hoarders). Any form of compulsive hoarding can seriously impair a person’s physical and psychological health if left untreated. Support from a counsellor can help a hoarder to identify the underlying reasons for their hoarding and then learn how to control their compulsions.
