“JuSt BeCauSe”

On entering my counselling room this is the very first thing you will read:

“Love Yourself JUST BECAUSE”

I display this phrase because I find it simply powerful. There are times when we search for a reason to give ourselves as to why we should be valued, worthwhile or lovable, and so we begin this quest looking for any reasons to give back to ourselves as an answer. This quest starts off hopeful, yet it isn’t long before we realize that there isn’t any satisfying reason to be found. Eventually, what started out as a positive search, becomes negative and soon we find ourselves becoming despondent.

So, I would like to suggest, that the next time you doubt your value, worthiness or reason to be loved, just repeat this phrase: I am valuable/worthy and lovable…JUST BECAUSE” and thus your search will end!

“Cementing” my sessions

IMG-20170301-WA0004

As a counselor with a *unique* approach to the counseling of children, adolescents and adults – I find these little cement discs I have made very insightful. After each session, I offer the client a cement disc with a word/words written on them. The client’s choice of disc acts as a reflection of what they have discovered about themselves during the session, and reveals to me a little of where they are at after a session. Clients also use these discs as a way of “summing up” how they are now feeling and what their future intentions are going to be.

Although these cement discs are simple, they have a profound ‘ability’ to help clients verbalize their emotions, attitudes and perspectives clearly:)

I just *LOVE* them!
