We can feel so devoid of hope, so empty, so powerless. We can feel so overwhelmed with emotional pain that the only way out seems to be to take our own lives. We can feel so alone, and yet this is when we need someone more than ever. This is when we need the courage to reach out to someone or for someone to reach out to us and just talk.

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day

Today, the 10th of September, 2012, is World Suicide Prevention Day. I have had a number of clients who have seriously considered killing themselves because they felt unable to cope with emotional issues or saw no point in living (suicide ideation).

My approach to counselling

I see Counselling as a personal encounter between myself as a therapist and my client where we work together to deal with issues of concern. Those issues may be of psychological pain or a desire for personal growth. 

I have worked with clients experiencing various degrees of anxiety. From being so overcome, carrying such a heavy burden that they were unable to function to being anxious about a decision.
