Total Health Counselling
How can a counsellor help me?
We are all aware of the ostrich with their head in the sand. Just like the ostrich, emotional issues, bereavement and anxiety will not disappear just because you ignore them. If anything, they get stronger. Ignoring these issues can often lead to other symptoms of poor health such as insomnia, headaches and general fatigue. For some clients more destructive behaviour can develop such as substance abuse or failing relationships.
Your counsellor can help provide you with the tools needed to deal with these strong feelings.
How does counselling work?
Counselling is the process that allows a person to better recognise the issues affecting them and develop the tools necessary to resolving them.
Counselling takes time. Just like the issues that have built up around the person, they rarely occur over night, and counselling works the same in reverse. But it is a very worthwhile process.

What is Counselling?
Counselling is one of the clinics most popular ‘talking therapies.’ If you are feeling a little out of control or just wish to gain a clear idea of where you would like your life to go, then counselling could be for you. Realising you need or want help is the first step towards getting a fitter, stronger and more happy life.
The world we live in today has never moved so fast and the demands and expectations we place ourselves under can often be unreasonable. It’s no wonder that sometimes we over do it and need a little help, or a push in the right direction.
What Happens At A Consultation?
After meeting your therapist you will be taken through a detailed consultation about your presenting complaint, recent and past medical history and general lifestyle questions. A physical examination of the face, tongue, hair, eyes etc is often useful to indicate your overall wellbeing.
Your therapist will then develop a treatment program tailored to your specific condition and will go through this with you. The first consultation is often a little longer than any follow up appointments that you may require. Expect your initial treatment to be approx 90 minutes, with follow up appointments around 60 mins.
