Wisdom in child rearing : Don't spoil me I know quite well that I ought not to have all I ask for. I am only testing you Don't be afraid to be firm with me. I prefer it, it makes me feel safe Don't let me form bad habits, I have to rely on you to detect them in the early stages Don't make me feel smaller than I am, it only makes me behave stupidly big Don't correct me in front of others if you can help it, I will take much more notice if you talk to me in private Don't be too upset when I say 'I hate you'. It isn't you I hate but your power to thwart me Don't take too much notice of my small ailments, sometimes they get me the attention I need Don't nag if you do, I shall have to protect myself by appearing deaf Don't made rash promises. Remember that you feel badly let down when promises are broken Don't forget that I cannot explain myself as well as I would like . That is why I am not always accurate Don't tax my honesty too much, I am easily frightened into telling lies Don't be inconsistent. That completely confuses me and makes me lose faith in you Don't always put me off when I ask questions. If you do you will find that I stop asking and find my answers elsewhere Don't tell me my fears are silly. They are terribly real to me and you can do much to reassure me if you try to understand Don't ever think it is beneath your dignity to apologise. An honest apology makes me feel surprisingly warm towards you Don't forget I love experimenting. I could not get on without it, so please put up with it Don't forget that I can't thrive without lots of understanding and love.

Family Therapy Counselling

A family interacts with each other to create an organisation. There are unspoken and spoken rules, assigned roles for each member and a power structure with a unique form of communication.


Abuse and Trauma Counselling

The definition of neglect is the deprivation of your physical, emotional and intellectual needs. As human beings we have needs that must be met to survive .When our needs are not met in childhood it impacts our capacity to function as adults Emotional neglect occurs when we are not stimulated, comforted and loved. Being inappropriately disciplined, criticised and yelled at has a major impact on the child at the time leaving scars that are difficult to resolve as adults.


Anxiety and Panic Attacks Counselling

Worries, we all have them! They help us to figure out what we want and help us to protect ourselves from negative things that may happen to us. There is always something uncomfortable in our lives. People we have to face, decisions we have to make, things we have to do that are difficult, etc, etc. Usually with time and by talking to our friends and family we can resolve the issues that are bothering us until the next one comes along.


Depression Counselling

The word depress means to press something down. When we are depressed we have pushed our feelings down often leaving us in a dark heavy place. Many people use the word depressed flippantly, they say not having ice cream depresses them or failing at an exam is depressing. These feelings of depression that come and go often in our lives are not accurately described. Feeling down or disappointed does not mean you are 'depressed'.


Relationships Counselling

We roll over in bed and think to ourselves 'it's all a dreadful mistake' In every relationship there is a time when we ask ourselves whether our partners are right for us? Did we choose wisely? Were we too young or immature? Is there something lacking in ourselves that does not allow us to understand why we are not as happy as we used to be? Many of us want our partners to change, we blame them for not listening, caring or understanding.
