Counselling Melbourne for Individuals and Couples
Many individuals and couples seek Counselling Melbourne during difficult times, when they feel down about themselves or feel unhappy in their relationship.
Are you feeling stuck in a behavioural pattern and can't seem to find a way out? Do you find it difficult to cope? Are you feeling unsure of yourself, feeling lost or lacking direction in life? Is your relationship becoming difficult to manage?
Our Counselling in Melbourne approach will assist you to deal with the underlying feelings that underpins unwanted behaviour.
Why choose a counselor? It can feel overwhelming when we hit low moments in life. Often, the way we cope can cause us to remain stuck in our problems, rather than resolving them.
Life can be stressful and painful, especially if we get triggered. In these moments we may not be able to deal with situations, which can lead to unhealthy coping mechanisms. Addictions, affairs, moving on from partners too quickly, running away and holding on to abusive relationships can become self-destructive pathways.
Many commence psychotherapy when these coping styles take control of them, as they become depressed and anxious. They find ways to alleviate the tension by looking for comforts, escapes or distractions. Yet, they remain stuck in self-perpetuating and self-defeating behaviour, searching for the quick fix to gratify their feelings of emptiness. Therapy targets the underlying issues to eradicate destructive behaviours and resolve them.
Counselling Service Melbourne aims to sort out the defensive behaviour that keeps the individual or couple stuck.
We can hold ourselves back by avoiding how we feel. In fact, the way we avoid our feelings can prevent us from fulfilling our real self. We might give up on ourselves because we feel we are not good enough, or lose ourselves in relationships to avoid feelings of rejection.

A healthy sense of 'self' creates the foundation for healthy relationships.

Many are afraid to be themselves because deep down they fear abandonment, judgement or they feel unsafe, so they compromise themselves for the sake of the relationship, often sabotaging themselves and their relationships.
Overcome self-limiting beliefs and defensive coping behaviour by unlocking the real self. Psychotherapy allows individuals to be free from the unconscious blind spots that interfere with how they perceive themselves and others.

Individual therapy or personal counselling works for those who may feel stuck, lost or are not coping with an aspect of life.
Often not being sure of ones self occurs from not registering ones thoughts or feelings. Avoiding to pay attention to ourselves can have a self-debilitating impact on the individual. Many lose themselves by adapting their behaviour to please others, or escape by distracting themselves from what is really going on inside. Sometimes individuals come to anger management counselling when they ignore their self and act out with anger toward those they love.

We utilize the Psychoanalytic Masterson approach from the International Masterson Institute in New York. James Masterson, a pioneering psychiatrist, found that addressing the acting out and defensive behaviour causes the person to face their feelings. This allows them to give up unwanted behavioural patterns that cause them to get stuck. When the defensive behaviours are eliminated the real self emerges, along with a stronger sense of self.
