Sometimes, life becomes a little too uncomfortable.
Our problems may seem insurmountable.
We can’t seem to see through our own personal fog.
What can we do about it? Who can we ask for help?
What happens in counselling?
Justine will ask you about your background and ways you have tried to deal with the problems. Then discuss with you the the most appropriate approach she will take and give you a chance to ask questions.
Justine discovered in 2017, after dealing with multiple health issues that she had been adversely affected by surgical mesh and went to the USA for full removal.
Regaining her health has brought another dimension to her work and capacity to help others heal also.
A counsellor is a health professional who uses his or her expertise to assist people to function better in their lives. Counsellors work in a wide range of locations in both the Public and Private sector — wherever they can help people to feel better about themselves or their relationships, to achieve more and be more fulfilled in their lives.
Many people are anxious about seeing a counsellor. This is natural because we like to feel that we are in control of our lives. We are often anxious about sharing our secrets, sensitive or personal information, our fears and concerns with someone outside the family or our community. We need to feel safe and that we can work with the professional that we choose.
The counsellor is like a coach—to help you figure out a game plan but not to do it for you.
Justine has been working with individuals, couples and families for over 20 years. Her experience as a woman, parent, wife and mother of special needs child helps her connect and understand issues that arise in people’s lives.
