Counselling is a journey of self-discovery and personal growth, however it can bring into awareness, some parts of ourselves that many find temporarily distressing. Acknowledging these "less than helpful" parts can be uncomfortable. It is important to expect a process that is up and down, both fulfilling and challenging at the same time.
Counselling can best be described as an experience that carefully peels back the old layers of who we are, in order to welcome and make room for the new! Inviting ourselves to process the discomfort of change, can foster a sense of confidence and clarity around who we are and who we want to become.
