Sunrise

Is there anybody there?

 

It’s all in my story.
Counselling is about “telling my story”

in a secure and gentle space, where it will be heard and respected.


People often say

“Why drag up the past?”
Yes my memories go back years but I am enmeshed in my subconscious
and so much of my life is

lived out of my subconscious.
I react and am triggered by 
past negative experiences which I may have suppressed.


Not to attend to trauma

often leads to addictions.


Unnamed Loss and Grief
may well be the source of depression.


A major issue in many peoples' lives is that of shame which is a deep (unconscious) feeling that
I am fundamentally inadequate. Our inferiority complex.


There is somebody here who will l
isten and understand and help to lead towards self-awareness.


This can light up the dark places and direct you to an easier path, a lighter burden and a more fulfilling life.
