COUNSELLING WITH ANDREA MURRAY
Hi, I’m Andrea and I’m a qualified professional counsellor helping those struggling with both everyday problems or confronted by more difficult issues. There may be a new situation in your life that you’re finding confronting and overwhelming. My goal is to work with you for the best outcome for your situation now.
WHY BOTHER WITH COUNSELLING?
Managing daily life can be overwhelming when some of our stressors become out of balance or something is added to the load. It might be an old issue that’s resurfaced and now has become unmanageable. It may be anything from loss of a job, illness, moving countries or just across town, finding out your partner has been unfaithful, separation, conflict or a traumatic experience. Maybe you're struggling with an addiction. These issues can be difficult and can cause major anxiety and even depression.
Counselling can help identify and clarify current issues, teach new ways to manage emotions and find solutions to help manage or resolve your situation. Burying the issue won’t make it go away. Finding a counsellor to talk with may be the key to moving forward to the resolution you need. Sometimes you just need to talk with someone confidentially, without judgement and who is caring. You want to feel heard and understood.
Seeking help from a counsellor, also known as a therapist, and finding the right fit for your needs is important. Research has shown that finding a professional best suited to you, leads to a much better outcome from counselling.
If you are holding on to a burning issue then maybe it’s time to talk. Make that first step and connect.
