COVID-19 is affecting us all in one way or another. It can be a very stressful time.

Be gentle to yourself.

Tomorrow is another day.

Let Yourself Rest"....Jeff Foster

If you're exhausted, rest.

If you don't feel like starting a new project, don't.

If you don't feel the urge to make something new, just rest in the beauty of the old, the familiar, the known,

If you don't feel like talking, stay silent.

If you're fed up with the news, turn it off.

If you want to postpone something until tomorrow, do it.

If you want to do nothing, let yourself do nothing today.

Feel the fullness of the emptiness, the vastness of the silence, the sheer life in your unproductive moments.

Time does not always need to be filled.

You are enough, simply in your being.

what is counselling

Person-centred counselling is about exploring and empowerment.

It is a process whereby you and the counsellor work together on the issues that you bring, in a safe, confidential and non judgemental way, so as to help you  understand what may be happening to you in your life.

It is not about giving advice but enables you to access your own resources and find a way through your problems.

Counsellors are trained to look beyond presenting problems to possible underlying causes, and can help you explore difficult, confusing and often painful emotions and experiences.

The aim of the therapeutic process is to enable you to better understand and accept yourself, and thus empower you to make your own choices and control your own life so that you can achieve autonomy and personal growth.  

Person–centred counselling enables you to develop and grow in your own way, to strengthen and expand your own identity and to become the person that you 'really' are independently of the pressures of others to act or think in particular ways.
