"You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf" (Jon Kabat-Zinn)
We all experience difficulties in our lives; they may be related to work stress, prejudices, divorce, sickness, social isolation, relationship issues, midlife crisis, loneliness, abuse, loss of loved ones, disappointments, failures or others. We can’t avoid pain, and we don’t have control over upsetting events, but we can learn to understand, accept and deal with them better.
“The truth that many people never understand, until it is too late, is that the more you try to avoid suffering, the more you suffer” (Thomas Merton)
What is Counselling?
“The term ‘counselling’ includes work with individuals and with relationships which may be developmental, crisis support, psychotherapeutic, guiding or problem solving....The task of counselling is to give the ‘client’ an opportunity to explore, discover and clarify ways of living more satisfyingly and resourcefully.”(Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, 1984)
