Individual Counselling Perth
In all that I do in counselling, I want to promote your wellbeing. I want to communicate hope. That through our conversations a confidence may arise that anticipates change. I will attend to the particular change you looking for and the goals that we mutually agree to work on. Over the course of counselling, your goals may change significantly or become redefined. It is also important to discuss the validity of particular goals being pursued. During the course of counselling we may explore your personal history, particularly if it is helpful for understanding current relational themes. At times recalling your personal story may provoke uncomfortable emotions. A central reason for going into personal history, is to sensitively encourage honesty and to face all that is there, both inside us and outside, with courage, knowing that pain and shame from the past can motivate us to hide things about ourselves that we and others actually find enjoyable. For example, your partner’s courage and strength, or that tenderness, and care. Her desire for beauty and expression of that desire. His humour and strong creative side. The end point of going into our past, is to release the best of who we are, for our enjoyment and for the enjoyment of others! This is the idea of transformational love.
