Life direction counselling
Finding the right direction in life is an existential problem that all of us face at some time.
Whether you’re fresh out of university and figuring out what you want to do with the rest of your 20s and beyond, or you’ve realised your existing lifestyle you’re living no longer “does do it for you”
Sometimes we can feel lost, stuck and confused which life direction counselling can help explore other options. We might have mixed feelings about a particular course of direction or about our relationships, hopes in life, career, and other aspects of life. Feeling ‘off course’ can stir feelings of emptiness, anxiety, frustration, confusion, restlessness, irritability and tiredness. Sometimes we might feel like we’re living our life for other’s approval such as our parents, partners or peer pressures. Sometimes our hopes conflict or we might feel paralysed by fear of moving forward due to perceived risk, uncertainty and loss of familiarity leading one to feel vulnerable of anxiety and depression.
Your psychologist will partner with you. Together they will share your troubles, explore options, discuss strategies, develop a plan, build support, elicit clarity and encourage your strengths. If you want to change your mind, to change your life, your psychologist will get the outcome you deserve.
