Mental Health Counselling and Therapy For Professionals

"It is the nature of our work that can make us particularly vulnerable [to mental health issues]"
writes one of my clients.

When you no longer manage to hold it all together, where do professionals, frontline staff and first responders find the support they need? Counselling professionals come in a variety of flavors: social workers, therapists, psychiatrists, medical doctors, lawyers, and many more; all regular people with human needs.

When counselling professionals need support, the lack of available, appropriate options can leave us feeling like we need to keep pretending that we've got it all together and "soldier on", often for fear of letting our clients, our reputation or ourselves down. Others should be shielded from our personal issues and we pretend as if we have our lives figured out. The rules of our profession force us to keep much of our personal experience concealed, which can lead to mental struggle and even trauma for us over time.

Confiding in friends or partners risks breaching ethics, our supervisor could react punitively or instructivly. What we truly need is support - a safe space where we can work with our own issues and the mental fall-out of our work. 

I provide a new approach to counselling professionals; an approach that supports mental health counselling; beyond supervision - beyond therapy. 

"Because of you, I stand bathed in light, in a universe of infinite possibilities. Through your genuine concern, skills and unique therapeutic approach to personal development, you have given me the skills and understanding to achieve a future of my own choice and creation"
