Catalyst Leeds Counselling
Many situations can arise in life that can be worrying or distressing and it in some cases it is possible to muddle through on your own but sometimes understanding or moving beyond the emotional obstacles faced can prove difficult. For those in and around Leeds, counselling is offered by Catalyst Counselling which can help obstacles to be understood, explored and overcome.
Counselling is a support service which is provided to clients, either alone, or as a couple, which can help the client in dealing with obstacles or difficulties which they face in their private life. By having a private space, support from a counsellor and time to reconcile or discuss issues which are causing problems, clients can be helped to understand what the basis of the problems are and how they can better cope with them by themselves.
For some clients, the issues that are being faced may be relationship problems. The relationship may be family, partner or friends however, some difficulties may have arisen that the client, or clients, are not able to resolve effectively on their own. At Catalyst Counselling in Leeds, counsellors can work either with an individual client, or with both partners, or parties, in the relationship, to talk through the problems in a safe, neutral environment. The counsellors are professionally trained and will approach the counselling session objectively to support the client or clients in talking through the difficulties. Often, this can help focus on what issues require to be resolved and how the client can go about coming to terms with the situation.
For those with low self esteem and self confidence in Leeds, counselling services can be provided by Catalyst Counselling to help support the client in improving their self image. Clients with self esteem or self confidence issues may be understandably nervous about seeking out counselling services. Leeds clients can be confident that Catalyst Counselling counsellors will take time with them on the first visit to get an overview and details on what the issues are and then consider whether counselling is the appropriate service for the client to use. Then, by supporting clients in exploring their worries and difficulties, the counsellor can help guide them to a place where they are able to reach choices and decisions of their own in a way that they are empowered and at ease with themselves.
Clients who have suffered from ongoing depression may be at a loss as to how to improve their situation. Medication can help alleviate the symptoms of depression. However, for depression to be overcome effectively, the root issues causing the depression must be addressed. Often, it is difficult for clients with depression to clearly see a way forward. In view of this, counselling can be of great help in addressing what the root causes are and also establish how these can be overcome. The objective and professionally trained counsellor can help clients explore the root issues and also help guide them when seeking ways in which to move forward effectively.
For anyone who has lost a loved one and is suffering from grief, adjustment to the loss can be aided through bereavement counselling. Leeds based Catalyst Counselling can provide bereavement counselling which supports the client in coming to terms with their loss. This can be of particular value to those who feel they cannot speak to others around them about the loss, as the gentle and professional approach of the counsellors mean vocalising fears, worries and sadness can help these issues be overcome.
Stress and anxiety are also issues which may dominate a client’s life, or may simply be a symptom of a traumatic period that the client is currently experiencing. Whatever the basis of the stress and anxiety, the effects can affect the ability to enjoy life and may go on to cause significant health problems. Trained counsellors in Leeds Catalyst Counselling can help each client work through the causes of stress and anxiety and help them find their own way to manage and master them.
Issues relating to sexuality can be extremely difficult to discuss with loved ones: fear, shame, disappointment and anger are emotions which are often felt when addressing this emotive subject. However, as Catalyst Counselling’s Leeds counselling services are delivered in a confidential and non-judgemental way by neutral, qualified counsellors, sensitive issues such as these can be discussed safely. In turn, this can allow these issues to be explored and faced fully so that each client can reach a rational decision on how to address the issues further.
Eating disorders are another issue which can be difficult to address with loved ones. Food is a necessity for survival, but eating can be an emotional issue and an emotive topic. The open and non-judgmental approach of the counsellors at Leeds Catalyst Counselling can help clients gain perspective on their relationship with food and help them break free from eating disorders. Underlying emotional issues can be explored with clients to help them understand the triggers for their disorder and to gain the tools to address these issues in other ways thus preventing an eating disorder continuing to dominate their life.
