Facing a crisis and/or uncertainties

The world is constantly changing. And so do we. However, change can be scary and challenging but also rewarding and liberating.

We often react to the need for change (external or internal) with anxiety, with ‘fight’, ‘flight’ or ‘freeze’ behavior, wanting to hold on to what we know, the secure and comfortable place.

We tend to avoid facing the ‘unknown’ and therefore remain in a ‘stuck’ place, dissatisfied with ourselves, our relationships and life.

We don’t take time to look ‘into’ ourselves and remain unaware of our core beliefs, how they serve or limit or how they perhaps prevent us to adjust to something that is necessary but perhaps less desirable; e.g. having less money or being alone.

In the counselling/psychotherapy sessions we will explore those core beliefs, social conditioning and inner conflicts to assist you to move out of a ‘stuck’ place.
