Welcome to Equilibrium Therapeutic Counselling

If life throws you off balance we are here to help

Sheila Samuels MSc, MBACP

Why Counselling?

 A general first question that is asked of clients is "What has helped you to make the decision to come for counselling now? "

An answer to the question could be something along the lines of......

There may have been a time in your  life, when an event has  happened  out of the blue to knock you off your emotional and mental balance,  it then overwhelms, resulting in you feeling less able to manage all the thoughts and emotions that arise.  

What tends to happen is that you continue with your day to day activities however the overwhelming incident gets pushed down inside and is not dealt with and carrying on proves to be more difficult than usual.  

At times you may decide to talk to partners or friends and this might help.  However, you may not want to disclose your thoughts or feelings to someone that is in your circle of friends or family. This could partly be,  not wanting to feel judged, or for what has been disclosed, not to be repeated at a later date, by the person you have told, or simply not wanting your issue to be known by another person you may see on a regular basis.   

Life can have a way of working its way out and things may feel lighter, then another life event  might occur and overwhelms again. However, this time it proves harder to carry on with your regular activities without thoughts of the issues affecting your everyday life, whether it be  at work,  or affecting personal relationships.  what or who ever it affects can cause you to have negative views on self and may manifest in feelings of not knowing what to do or where to turn.

Here at Equilibrium Therapeutic Counselling  we concentrate on helping  to regain the balance back to your life.  Working collaboratively to help you realise your goals by creating clarity and insight so that you no longer feel overwhelmed.
