The need for Individual counselling may be the result of a difficult life situation, challenges with significant relationships or the inability to find a solution to one’s problems. It is not necessary to have a diagnosis or know exactly what you want help on when contacting a counsellor. If you are feeling unsatisfied with your life’s current situation or direction, your therapist and you can work together to determine the best focus for therapy and course of action. We are able to help adults on a wide variety issues using evidence based therapeutic interventions.
According Dr. William Glasser, happiness or mental health is enjoying the life you are choosing to live, getting along well with the people near and dear to you, doing something with your life you believe is worthwhile and not doing anything to deprive anyone else of the same chance for happiness.
Mentally healthy people don’t accept unhappiness but rather see it as a warning sign that something needs to change and a person may choose to enlist the help of a professional trained counsellor for their individual counseling sessions. Individual counselling can help a person to look inward to see what needs to change and to find solutions and build skills to address their problem.
A professional counselor can help give you the skills and tools to regain internal control, stop blaming others and help you find your path to happiness. A professional counselor has a master’s degree with at least 6+years of training, usually passes national exams, continuing education courses and supervision. They can help you stop self-defeating patterns and improve important relationships.
