Most of us are very good at being kind, understanding and supportive of our friends, however how well do we apply this same care to ourselves?
At times our thoughts can be self-critical, we tend to focus in on the areas we believe we aren’t achieving in. We can convince ourselves that our needs are not as important as others. Other times, we set impossibly high standards and expectations for ourselves, and then feel as though we are not good enough when these are not met. It may feel like we are constantly dwelling on things to improve or fix and comparing ourselves to others.
If this resonates with you, you could benefit from focusing on self-compassion and self-care. At Seed, we can help you cultivate self-compassion and implement effective self-care routines. Let us help you to create a more kind and gentle relationship with yourself, and observe your confidence, resilience and wellbeing flourish.
At Seed, we work with individuals to improve their relationships, both with themselves and others. Relationship counselling can support you in reconnecting with your values and allows you to reflect on the type of connections you’d like to have with those around you.
Relationship counselling can help you grow confidence and skills in areas such as: creating and maintaining boundaries, cultivating your communication skills, learning to say no, balancing your relationships, parenting and navigating relationships through life changes.
In addition to individual appointments, Seed also has couples and family counselling sessions available. Please contact us for more information.
Burnout is best described as living in a state of overwhelming mental, emotional and often physical exhaustion. Workplace burnout is characterised by exhaustion, cynicism and feelings of inefficacy, or powerlessness.
People who are passionate and committed to their work, such as those in the helping professions, tend to be more likely to experience workplace burnout. This chronic stress can impact not only your work performance, but also your relationships, emotional management, view of self, energy level, physical health, problem solving skills and memory.
At Seed, we can support you in overcoming your experience of burnout, and assist you to rest, reset and find your balance again. By reflecting on your own personal experience, we can help you understand your own stress warning signs, develop effective coping strategies and implement preventative measures, such as routine self-care.
Personal burnout, or lifestyle burnout, is more than everyday stress. It is when we experience an overwhelming, unrelenting amount of stress over a period of time. We forgo rest and self-care in a bid to ‘catch up’ and meet the, often impossibly high, standards we have set for ourselves.
This has a huge impact on our emotional, mental and physical health. Often people experiencing lifestyle burnout feel overwhelmed, anxious, quick to anger, trapped and tired.
If this resonates with you, you could benefit from getting in touch with us. Let us help you work through your experience of burnout, and assist you to rest, reconnect and find your balance again.
It can be a big leap when you decide to seek help for the mental wellbeing of yourself or someone close to you. At Seed, we fully appreciate that there needs to be a connection with your therapist in order to receive the best results possible.
To ensure your journey to a better self is not marred by the feeling of obligation that you must commit to the first counsellor you reach out to, we offer the invitation of a free session with no obligation to continue if you feel it’s not the right fit for you.
We are all different and different approaches resonate with different people. At Seed Counselling and Wellness, we are dedicated to ensuring that we assist in helping you find the right path to a happier and healthier you, however that takes place.
