Perhaps life is going fairly well however you can’t help but feel that you could be more fulfilled. Maybe you compare yourself unfavourably to others, wondering if the grass is greener and whether you should try a new type of work or find a new relationship. A Person Development counsellor can greatly assist those who feel restless and dissatisfied or are simply curious to learn more about themselves. Indeed contrary to popular belief, therapy is not just for those who are unhappy. It can also be a great tool to optimise your life. Personal development counselling can promote increased awareness of what you need and want. This can lead to a shift in perspective allowing you to feel more contented with the status quo or, alternatively it may uncover greater possibilities in your current life empowering you to make positive changes.
Your personal development counsellor will start by listening to you attentively as you discuss your concerns. The simple fact of feeling truly heard by an empathic practitioner who gives you their full attention is in itself beneficial to discovering more of yourself. They will ask pertinent questions to get a good understanding and then together you will collaborate on your objectives and decide on an initial set of sessions. Your counsellor works on the premise that you hold the keys to unlock your own answers and that with the right questions and support you will gain clarity and insight to view your life situation from a fresh perspective and to make changes, if you wish. The sessions will go at a pace that is comfortable for you. You will play an active role in your sessions, undertaking different exercises and developing your creative problem solving skills, with the support of a caring counsellor. You leave feeling as if you are more able to influence your life circumstances, make the desired changes, or at the very least be more at peace with how things are.
