New Year! New You?!

Posted on January 5, 2017 at 5:03 PM Comments comments (37)
Well, it's the 5th of January of a brand new year and maybe that list of resolutions you made for yourself is now looking a bit daunting?!

Maybe it's not about making drastic changes in our lives but looking at what small changes we could make to help us feel more fulfilled or content with our lot?  Or maybe that is the crux of the matter...not being content with your lot?

Change of any kind can seem daunting, even a little bit scary but also, changes can be positive.  Afterall, if you're feeling that something is not quite right in your life then making a change surely would be a positive thing to do?

So, maybe it's time to take stock...what do you feel is missing, wrong, needs to change?  It could be your job is not fulfilling you, your life isn't turning out the way you expected or you are part of a couple and you feel at an impasse...poor communication, possibly arguing or just not feeling on the same wavelength?  You don't want to give up on the relationship but you don't know the way forward?  Maybe you feel isolated and don't have anyone to discuss things with?

Change in all these situations is probably the answer for you but how to go about it? Over the past year I can honestly say I have counselled people in all the above situations and helped them make positive changes in their lives.  Exploring your feelings and helping you to make positive changes in your life with the support of an experienced therapist may be the best resolution you make this year...go on, give it a try!
