No one knows what 'Life' may bring
In the movie, "Forest Gump", Forest said, "My mom always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.”
It may be true that we do not know what life will throw at us, however there are ways to manage all the unpleasantness that life can throw at you and me. Sometimes it may seem that you have no way out in times of trouble, and it seems like everything is beyond and above your ability to cope.
Though we are not given life manuals on how to solve problems that may come upon us, there are effective ways others have managed in difficult situations.
This is where I can help you to discover the best way to find resolution to your problems and manage your life better.
If you are struggling with life issues such as family life, social life, work stress, depression, relationship issues, parenting, whatever the issue may be, I will work with you to find ways that are specific and suitable for you to get your life back on track and develop personal resilience to sustain you through future challenges.
Nothing beats talking things through with someone who listens and understands you.
What you do not know
I grew up hearing this saying ‘what you don’t know is bigger than you’. I find this to be true. You only know what you know, and what you know or do not know may be limited and limiting you from achieving your potential or living a wholesome life. Counselling can help you discover more about yourself.
The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.
Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise.
Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak knits up the o'er wrought heart and bids it break.
By William Shakespeare, Macbeth
It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.”
William Ernest Henley – Invictus
We can hardly bear to look. The shadow may carry the best of the life we have not lived. Go into the basement, the attic, the refuse bin. Find gold there. Find an animal who has not been fed or watered. It is you!! This neglected, exiled animal, hungry for attention, is a part of your self.
—Marion Woodman (as quoted by Stephen Cope in The Great Work of Your Life)
