Not sure if you need counselling?
People typically see counsellors because they are experiencing difficulties with relationships, friends, family or work.
Consider the sample questions that follow. Are you:
- Continuously feeling sad, blue, down or irritable?
- Having difficulty stopping or controlling worries?
- Feeling fearful/anxious about and avoiding social situations or specific objects or situations (e.g. flying)?
- Experiencing intrusive and repetitive thoughts or images and/or continuously repeating certain acts to reduce the distress you feel?
- Re-experiencing horrific events that may have happened to you, or that you witnessed, in dreams, flashbacks, or memories?
- Worrying excessively about your physical health?
- Experiencing sexual difficulties or issues around gender and sexuality?
- Feeling bullied or harassed at work?
- Not making the progress in your career that you expect?
- Experiencing verbal or physical domestic violence?
- Grieving the loss of someone or a relationship break-up?
- Unable to trust other people?
- Focussing too heavily on getting everything perfect and in control?
- Avoiding other people because you feel inferior and fear being criticised?
- Needing someone to take care of you to the point that you feel clingy or submissive?
- Feeling frustrated that other people don’t recognise your accomplishments?
If you answered “yes” to one or more of the above questions then counselling may be of real benefit to you. If these questions didn’t capture your particular concerns or you find it hard to say what is troubling you, then I invite you to call me and chat about it for a few minutes.
Feel free to have a free 15 minute chat with Rodger to discuss how he can help you moving forward.
