From time to time, life can present us with difficult experiences and periods of stress which can have a negative impact on our emotional well-being and our mental health. Because emotional well-being and mental health are important elements of personal health, it is essential that during times of stress and uncertainty we take steps to protect these.
“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves”. – Viktor E. Frankl
One of the ways that we can do this is by engaging in counselling. Counselling is a recognised talk therapy and psychological support which can be an important form of support and mental healthcare for people. For example,
Each person is unique in terms of their personality and life experience. This means that everyone responds differently to stressors, and it is widely acknowledged that there is no single theory inclusive enough to explain the complexity of human behaviour. Because of this, the method of therapy that I use is pluralistic, which means that my treatment approach is influenced by combining the views and techniques of numerous models of therapy, including the humanistic, cognitive-behavioural and systemic models.
