Counselling Services

I provide a range of counselling services in the areas of:

What is Counselling?

Counselling is a way of exploring your personal situations and issues with a professional who is empathic, impartial and non-judgmental.

While counselling does not provide ‘magical answers’ or direct advice, it will help you to explore yourself and find resolution.

Counsellors respect and promote your ability to make decisions in the light of your own beliefs, values and context.

Counselling is ultimately an early intervention method of working through issues before they can become too big or heaven forbid ‘organic’, where your body / health in some way suffers.

Getting help sooner rather than later with a professional counsellor / therapist is always the most helpful. You will have opportunity to work through issues before they become more of an impact on and in your life.

Counselling helps you to work through issues free of diagnosis and prescriptions.

Counselling can also help you to:

  • Help restore the balance holistically through the mind, body, heart and soul
  • Help to find the answers within – empowering
  • Deal with difficult family situations
  • Apply effective parenting techniques
  • Help to improve relationships
  • Work towards solutions to life’s challenges
  • Find better ways to cope with life
  • Handle stress/anxiety and conflict in a healthier manner
  • Assist in breaking problem patterns of behaviour
  • Help with career planning and transition

And much more…

Professional Counsellors are there to help you!

Even if it is a chat once a month, I know you will feel the benefits to yourself and your life in talking things out rather than letting them ‘fester’. Leaving issues unresolved for too long often results in health decline, so a lesser feeling in the joy of life and ultimately a longer journey in working through things.

Many of our answers lie within, and working with Josephine provides the opportunity to explore and search out resolutions in a confidential environment.

Counselling and Psychology

Counselling is very different from Psychology, and many can get the two confused. Professional Counsellors are trained quite differently from Psychologists. I have attempted to briefly outline these two very different approaches to therapy for your information.

Counselling is ultimately an early intervention method of working through issues before they can become insurmountable. Getting help sooner rather than later with a professional counsellor / therapist is always the most helpful. You will have opportunity to work through issues before they become more of an impact on and in your life.

Counselling does not diagnose or prescribe, but allows you to discover the answers from within yourself and restore the balance holistically working with the mind, body, heart and soul.

Counselling is a way of exploring your personal situations and issues with a professional who is empathic, impartial and non-judgmental. It does not provide ‘magical answers’ or direct advice, but helps you to explore yourself and find resolution. By achieving this can only help in your journey through life should other obstacles come into your path.

Psychology is the science of the mind and its mental states and processes. Psychology can involve the use of behavioural science, as this is a special branch of psychology which deals with the study of observable human behaviours.

Psychologists are trained to be able to provide a diagnosis of a mental disorder.
