Counselling Services Perth
Our Counselling Services in Perth involves a process where the current impact and possible underlying causes of your presenting issues are explored with a skilled, compassionate counsellor. Your counsellor will support you to find possible solutions to your problems and give you specific steps to implement. We provide a safe, non-judgmental and confidential environment at our counselling practice.
What Is Counselling
Our Counselling in Perth is a traditional form of “talk” therapy where the counsellor discusses with you the particular known issues and behaviours. We provide counselling to individuals, couples or families.
Counselling is often conducted in a shorter term context to address a specific issue. If you seek guidance on a broader set of issues which are complex, counselling may take a longer time.
What Does Our Form Of Counselling Involve
Your therapist at the Energetics Institute will help you review and address specific problems you may be experiencing. This will help you gain greater clarity and understanding of your issues. The essence of talking helps to explain and process events or situations which are causing you distress. There may be a cathartic release if needed, where the counsellor is a compassionate and supportive witness. You may find you can process and bring to completion some troubling concern, issue or event.
Neuroscience reveals that you develop neural circuits or associated maps in your thinking which left unchallenged will keep you stuck in the same thought patterns. The intervention of counselling can change the mental associations you typically adopt.
What Counselling Cannot Treat
You may find that counselling may uncover trauma related to earlier experiences in your life. Your therapist may then seek permission to work with you using psychotherapy or trauma release techniques.
Our Counselling in Perth will not be enough for certain mental health issues or personality disorders. It is not suitable for Schizophrenia, Bipolar, Narcissism, Borderline Personality Disorder or complex abuse issues. The counselling could possibly be an adjunct to deeper psychotherapy work. You may need to seek out the services of a qualified psychiatrist to help these conditions.
How Does Counselling Differ From Psychotherapy
An Energetics Institute’s counselling session in Perth involves an intervention that can change the mental associations you typically adopt when stressed. When you feel stressed, there are concurrent changes in your brain neural circuits that link and fire.
Our Psychotherapy in Perth builds on counselling to widen the dimension of your experience with us to more fully explore and express your feelings in actual embodied processes. This can help you feel deeper changes in your being, promoting a healthy body and mind.
Our clients normally report that our form of psychotherapy process creates a new level of conscious awareness and new unconscious patterns of associated thought. It can also create a heightened sense of self-worth and the ability to tackle ongoing life issues with new strategies and awareness.
