Interestingly, our bodies tell us how we are feeling if we take time to notice; e.g. sweaty palms, racing heart, clenched jaw. These are all messages we can learn to understand which, in turn, can help with fear, grief and other uncomfortable feelings. Working with the sensations of your inner world can equip you with a greater sense of freedom and power and help you to understand yourself more fully.
Did you know you have conversations with yourself? Just as you talk to other people, you also talk to yourself (self-talk). Uncovering both your helpful and unhelpful thinking styles can assist in many areas of life because what you think has a flow on effect; impacting your feelings and behaviour.
Would you like to learn to live more in the "here and now"? People of all ages find this to be a wonderful source of peace and enjoyment. You can learn strategies to help you live in the moment more often so you are not overly focused on the past (which can contribute to depression) or the future (which can contribute to anxiety).
These are ways of discovering more about yourself and your thoughts and feelings in a non-threatening way through art, music, photography, writing or whatever form you choose.
If you would like your counselling sessions to have a Christian focus, I am more than happy to accommodate this.
