How does counselling help?

Categories: live, love

At The Health and Wellbeing Studio, we have been reflecting on what might inspire people to really look after themselves, not just the physical but also the mental, emotional, spiritual and relational aspects of life. As a team of health and wellbeing professional we have noticed our clients experience conflict, anxiety, stress, big life stuff and seemingly small (but it's so not).

The common thread is so many people focus on managing the physical signs and symptoms they experience but are less comfortable acknowledging the mental, spiritual, emotional and relational (and how this impacts the physical stuff).

Why do people not like counselling?

As a counsellor I get it. Opening up, allowing someone to see your fears, accept comfort and support can be terrifying. Change takes time. 

Beyond that, the association between stigma, shame and mental illness continues to be pervasive in our culture. If that is the lens you are looking through, then as a counsellor, I get it. Yet, counselling involves so much more. 

Do I really need counselling?

I prefer to use the lens of health and wellbeing. When we are healthy (the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and relational) our world expands and we are able to appreciate our vulnerability and our humanity. As we develop a sense of wellbeing, our confidence, self-esteem, appreciation of people and day-to-day life expands. We are then better able to deal with the challenges and transitions of life, use our abilities to reach our potential and build healthy relationships in all aspects of life.

What lens are you looking through? It might be worth considering...
