“It takes everything I have just to get out of bed in the morning.”
“I don’t recognize the person in bed next to me. I feel so alone and frustrated. I ache to feel connected again.”
“I know I shouldn’t get so angry! I know I hurt people I really care about, BUT something just clicks, and the words start coming out.”
“I can feel it hanging over my head. I know I need to get it done, but I just can’t bring myself to do it. I just can’t! What’s wrong with me?”
“The thought of being in a crowd makes me want to run away. Even leaving the house feels overwhelming. But I feel restless and want to do something. It just all feels like too much!”
“I love my kid, but they are exhausting! Nothing is easy with them. They always seem to be getting upset about something. I wish we could just have ONE calm day.”
“I want to get help. I really do. But I don’t know where to start, and I’m afraid if I start crying, I’ll never stop.”
“Every cell of my body misses them. Now there is this big black hole inside me sucking all the colour and joy from my life.”
“I want to do more, but the thought of getting in a vehicle makes my heart pound, and it feels hard to breathe. It’s just easier to stay home.”
“There are moments when I wish I wasn’t even here, and I wonder if anyone would notice or care if I was gone.”
“I don’t know what to do. Nothing seems to work.”
We’ve got you!
You are likely here because you are struggling, and wishing your life was different.
Making changes, moving forward and healing are all so much easier when you have someone to walk with you—someone who knows what you are going through, that you trust will be there and most importantly, believes in you.
What does it take for counselling to be a success?
Change is complex and can be uncomfortable. It rarely falls on a linear trajectory. You will need to make a commitment to yourself and the counselling process to ride out the short-term discomfort and get to where
you want to go. We will be there with you every step of the way.
Counselling is a relationship where you are an active participant trying new ways of being, observing the results and making adjustments. It’s a place to learn and practice. We help you feel brave and have faith in
your ability to do something different.
Hope and optimism give room for a sense of agency over your life to develop. Hope springs from knowing that something distressing is temporary and that you have, or will soon have, the ability to navigate
it. When you aren’t feeling hopeful, we carry the hope for you.
