People seek Clinical Counselling for a variety of reasons, including moving through a difficult life transition, desire to enhance spiritual or personal growth, or improve mental health or relationships with people in their lives.
People who come to counselling are often experiencing, or have experienced, anxiety, depression, grief, substance abuse, physical abuse/trauma, anger or stress management issues, obsessive/compulsive behaviour, confusion surrounding sexuality, or difficulties with assertiveness/communication skills.
While Clinical Counselling can help you move through a difficult period of time, it is equally effective when your life is running smoothly. Often this is the best time to be able to understand patterns of coping mechanisms and develop insight into issues you may have noticed popping up again and again in your life.
Approaches of counselling that may be used include Interpersonal Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Trauma Therapy and Mindfulness Psychology.
