the processes

What will happen in your sessions?

In a Counselling session, you will have the chance to speak with a therapist about concerns of your past, anxieties of the future, relationship issues or general life challenges you are facing at this time. It’s always nice to be able to just talk to someone non-judgemental. We will help you find clarity, resolve conflicts within yourself, and give you coping skills to deal with your hardships. The therapy will also help you gain new perspectives on things you have failed to realise in the past.

What is Counselling?

Counselling Therapy is about finding truth and meaning within our inner world, allowing inner resources to assist in the healing process. What most people believe about ‘deep introspection’ is that we all need to practise like a devout monk to achieve a high level of awareness. Although this is partly true, all we need to do is begin our deep inner journey within our deep inner self. We access our unconscious mind through deep introspection and reflection, with the assistance of a therapist in our sessions.

Counselling Therapy is about feeling safe and comfortable to express your emotions and concerns without being judged. Within the adult self in every present moment holds all the wisdom we need for healing. You can be of any religion, culture, or race to get the benefits of this Counselling therapy. For Counselling Therapy, please give us a call if you have a particular issue not listed above. Once you give us a call, we can discuss the process of Counselling, discuss if this therapy is appropriate for you and work out ways to assist in constructing a change plan.

Relationship counselling

Marriage, divorce and separation anxiety

Anxiety and depression can be experienced when we’re having relationship issues. It may be a breakup, going through a divorce, or a very hard separation. Marriage can also trigger feelings of uncertainty and anxiety. Depression can set in when our expectations of marriage have not been met. If you’re experiencing emotional abuse, physical abuse, and domestic violence, just know that you are not alone. We can help you overcome these issues with Counselling, and work through new strategies to overcome your challenges. So, you can feel confident and empowered to move forward with positivity and certainty.

Trauma and Abandonment in children

In childhood, sometimes we can experience trauma or abandonment. We refer to these conditions as Attachment Theory. Attachment Theory is grouped into three categories.

Anxious attachment is associated with a negative self-image, where an individual seeks the approval of others, anticipating fears of rejection and abandonment. Avoidant or Ambivalent attachment is characterised by a negative image of others, a withdrawal from society with a fear of depending too much on others. Secure attachment is about long-term relationships based on trust. Where an individual has high self-esteem, seeks out social support, overly shares feelings with other people and seeks approval from others for self-esteem.

If a carer of a child has abandoned a child, the development within the child will not be developed properly. The neurosis then starts to manifest as a young adult. Whatever the child is lacking in development, the person compensates by seeking relationships that give them what they lack. It’s the inner paradigm of the individual that acts out as a behaviour that reflects the inner beliefs of what the outside world presents to them. This therefore creates unhealthy relationships of dependence, isolation and neediness that can be a burden on a person and their partner, friends, or family members. This then can continue as a neurosis of behavioural addiction that can manifest as sex addiction, drug and alcohol addiction, work addiction and many other undesirable behaviours.

Here at Awareness Healing, you are not alone. We offer safe and non-judgemental therapies that can help the person develop parts of themselves that were not developed as a young person or child. For more information about Trauma and Abandonment Hypnotherapy, please
