Seeing things from a different perspective – on the experiences that are causing you pain or difficulty.

Increased intimacy and connection – with yourself and others. The counsellor’s attitude of acceptance, empathy and unconditional positive regard for you as a unique individual and human being can encourage you to show more compassion towards yourself and loved ones.
Counselling can help develop your capacity to love and be loved.
Coping with difficult feelings – Giving space to your thoughts, feelings and emotions and having them accepted and validated in the therapy session can be a very reparative experience.
Counselling helps you make peace with yourself, both in the present moment as well as with your past.
Learn how to regulate your emotions – when you feel ‘flooded’ ór ‘triggered’ by your emotions, it can seem impossible to calm yourself down. It is vital for your mental and physical well-being to be able to do this.
Counselling can help you to get a better handle on your emotions and manage situations which are likely to fuel them more effectively.
