Resilience Counselling

Everyday we experience uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure. We are vulnerable. Yet, there are a number of factors that influence our ability to develop strategies to move through life's challenges and cultivate resilience. 

We encounter obstacles on every journey we make: the Wholehearted journey is no exception. (Brené Brown)

Who is resilience counselling for?

Adversity can emerge in any domain of life, as a result of developmental experiences, trauma, tragedy, threat or other significant sources of stress. Sometimes we need support to develop a process of positive adaptation.

 Resilience counselling can help you:

  • Learn how to lean into uncomfortable emotions
  • Manage feelings of distress and develop a greater sense of calm
  • Develop strategies to enhance your capacity to cope
  • Problem solve and identify inner resources to respond
  • Identify and develop personal strategies to enhance resilience
  • Renew a sense of connection with others
  • Problem solve and identify inner resources to respond
  • Maintain hope
  • Build shame resilience
  • Reduce the sense of isolation and aloneness
  • Cultivate courage and self compassion
  • Restore your sense of self and a feeling of wellbeing

Being resilient does not mean the absence of struggle or distress. The road to resilience is likely to be paved with considerable emotional vulnerability.  As a dynamic process of adaptation, resilience counselling will help you identify your own sources of strength and develop ways of responding to adversity that restore a sense of wellbeing.
