What is counselling?


 "The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.”


Ralph Waldo Emerson

 Invivo means 'in life'...  


 Our experiences in life affect and shape us. They're at the    heart of who and what we are.  At times, we all feel pain,    loss, confusion, anger, frustration and sadness.  Sometimes    it might feel like there's something missing from our lives.    We can often lose our way and struggle to be the people    we want to be.  


 Our lives are complicated, making it hard to find time for    ourselves.  Sometimes it's hard to see the wood for the    trees...  


 Counselling is a type of talking therapy.  It allows us to talk    about our lives and problems, and to  explore and make    sense of our thoughts and feelings.  When we do this we    can accept, understand and change our lives for the better,    both in the present and the future.  


 Counselling helps us:  


 explore our thoughts & feelings  /  make sense of    our experiences  /  increase our self-awareness  /  form    new perspectives & options  /  develop our ability to make    choices & take action for ourselves.  ​


 It gives us the chance to look at ourselves and make    changes for the better.  It can give us the knowledge and    skills to tackle life on our own terms and grow into the    people we hope to be.
