Change can be a scary thought and actually taking the necessary steps can feel daunting, even terrifying!

Change however brings hope, adventure, challenges and new possibilities. It allows us to move forward, plan, experience and live our dreams.

By embracing changes and tackling the fears that holds us back we grow, we learn, we flourish, we live, we become who we want to be and create the life we want to lead.

Are you asking the right questions of yourself?

As a therapist work I with individuals to help them to help themself. Asking the right questions is an important part of my work. If you are suffering from stress, anxiety, depression, work/family/relationship issues, or anything situation or problem that has you feeling stuck or unable to cope contact me at carol@believecounselling.ie.

Take Care of Yourself, there is only One You!!

Self care is the most important gift we can give to our self. No one knows better than us what we need day to day, moment to moment to make us feel good. Taking time to ask yourself what do I need? What am I missing? What would make me happy?

Never be afraid to say NO to requests if you don’t want to commit. Doing what makes you happy keeps you healthy mentally, physically and spiritually. Remember if we are not feeling strong and happy within we won’t have anything to give to the people around us.

Take care of yourself first then enjoy life and the people around you.

Life is about choices. Be sure that when you make a choice it is the right one for YOU.

Everyone has an opinion and loved ones may try to help you make choices but trust your heart and be true to yourself. Never make a decision you are not happy with to please others. Always value your decisions they are your truth.

It’s your life live it your way, just be kind to others on your journey.

How far are you willing to go?

Never stop pushing yourself! Learning, growing, facing your fears, this is Living!!! 

Live well and be Happy!

Living Your Dream??

What are your dreams? Are you actively chasing them or are you afraid to try?

Live and learn,

Try and fail,

NEVER give up before you start!

We get one life and we choose what to make of it! Choose well so that you will never have regrets…

The Truth About Depression BBC Documentary 2013

Depression is possibly one of the most common and spoken about mental illnesses experienced today. With reportedly a one in four risk of someone experiencing depression in their life time and yet there is still a massive stigma around it and mental health in general.

Thankfully mental illness, in particular depression, is being highlighted in the media on a regular basis which is helping to educate and encourage those who suffer to seek out treatment be that talk therapy, anti-depressants or a combination of both.

I wanted to post this BBC Documentary because I found it to be particularly interesting both from a medical understanding and from first hand accounts of people’s experiences of depression in how it affects them, their lives and the lives of people around them.

How would focusing on the positive change your life?

If we are to simplify our lives by focusing on what is really important (family, friends, love, fun, a sense of belonging, helping others etc) and took the time to appreciate the little day to day things, how much of a difference do you think that would make to your life?

Happiness

Growth Yes Please!

If we are to grow we need to recognise where we have been, where we are now and where we want to go. Growth is achieved through making mistakes and learning from them. Perfection is an illusion, a standard not possible for anyone to reach. Be yourself, make mistakes and move forward on your journey for your mistakes will make you stronger and wiser enriching your your life.
