Sometimes you may know what it is you would like to change but not know how to go about it. Or you might feel an insuppressible urge to change things without knowing what the change should lead to. Consulting a counsellor or therapist is often a phase on the road to exploration, processing and change. A phase that can be shared with someone who listens, queries what you say and do, and who mirrors your behaviour so that you can learn from the image that appear to be presenting to the world around you. Someone who more than anything else, can be a witness to your personal journey of vulnerability and strength.
Don’t we all know them – those moments in our lives when we feel that we have ground to a halt yet still keep repeating the same old choices and responses, simply because we are unable to come up with any other option?
Or those times when we are confronted with choices that are supposed to give direction to our lives but whose basis, for example, any sense of “who am I, what do I actually want, what am I actually good at?’ is clouded by old habits, limiting beliefs and imposed expectations, either implicit or explicit?
Most of us are familiar with such moments. Struggling with emotions such as anger, grief, disappointment or shame – emotions that may play a major role in determining your behaviour but that you simply do not know how to deal with. Or being on a quest for a solution to your restlessness, you passiveness or the frustration you feel, knowing that there is more to you, that there has to be more to your relationships or your life than you are getting out of them at the moment.
As personal counsellor I am happy to guide you as find your (new) path.
I don’t know what your path or even what your destination is. Deep inside, you are the only one who knows this. I believe that each human being is born with their own unique set of gifts and talents and that sometimes we all need a little guidance from someone else to help us find our way. That is what I do – I offer guidance, temporary support so that my clients can get back on their feet and follow their own paths. The figure ‘2’ in Move2More symbolises this. You need to take the steps yourself, but not necessarily alone.
