Life has a habit of throwing us curveballs, often at times when we least expect it. At the end of the day, it is how we deal with these curveballs that helps us stay afloat and keep travelling on.
Dealing with the challenges of life alone can be difficult and can leave us feeling overwhelmed and confused. With the help of counselling, you can learn the strategies to face challenges head on, while developing important life-skills and healthy coping mechanisms.
With the fast-paced and stressful nature of our modern world, stress and self-esteem related issues, such as anxiety and depression are on the rise. Counselling can help you navigate these challenging issues and prevent them from either developing or getting worse. If issues related to mental health and well-being aren’t addressed, they have the habit of spiralling out of control.
Whether you’re struggling with issues related to anxiety, depression, or substance abuse. Blue Horizons Counselling can provide you with a clinical psychologist with the specialised skills to help you get back on your feet and face life with the same passion that you once had.
Blue Horizons Counselling can help you deal with the following issues
Psychological and emotional difficulties often accompany drug and substance addiction. Counselling can help you recognize the thought and belief processes behind your substance abuse issues, getting to the core of the issue.
20% of Australians aged 18-85 experience a mental health related issue every year (Black Dog Institute, 2019). Many people avoid getting help due to the stigma related around mental health issues; however, getting counselling and receiving the right treatment can prevent breakdown and the symptoms worsening. Mental health issues that can be improved by counselling are anxiety, depression, eating disorders, bipolar disorder and substance abuse.
The psychological effects of trauma can be debilitating. You may have experienced a serious accident or been a victim of abuse. Whatever the circumstances, trauma can seriously impact your quality of life. Counselling can provide you with skills and techniques to reduce the hold trauma has over your life.
Healthy relationships are the key ingredient to living a happy and fulfilling life.
