Counselling in PerthTherapy for Individuals and Couples Therapy Services.

Perth counselling  allows individuals and couples to manage emotional difficulties, while changing repetitive relationship patterns and unwanted behaviours. Therapy allows individuals to  become free from unconscious blind spots that get in the way of living a self  enhancing lifestyle.

As the principle counsellor, Nancy Carbone uses the Masterson psychodynamic therapeutic approach, which is aimed at building the self capacity.

Why Counselling?

Like servicing a car, a service makes the car run smoother, counselling  focuses on strengthening the ‘self’s’ capacity to function, so life runs smoother.

Just like ignoring your car when it needs to be repaired, ignoring what is going on inside, can be like driving a car that does not work. In a similar way, many ignore the signs that things are not working, by ignoring the self.  Instead, many distract themselves or  find comforts, to deflect feelings.  Many stay stuck by avoiding what may be going on inside, because it might be hard to face or evoke uncomfortable feelings. The more we ignore these feelings or concerns, the more ‘out of order’ one can feel, resorting to unhealthy coping mechanisms, which  makes it worse.

The self stays weak  when emotions cannot be managed or tolerated within ourselves, so they become defended against or avoided, leading to destructive ways of coping that further impairs the self’s capacity to function effectively. In couples, partners can discharge unwanted  feelings, which can negatively affect relationships, hurting love ones.

Therapy manages unwanted emotional states, so the individual feels more equipped to handle life, developing more adaptive coping styles, as well as fostering a stronger sense of self.  Psychotherapy builds the  ‘self’s foundation, building the inner resources to refuel the self, increasing the capacity for  stability in self functioning. Counselling  improves  all areas of ones life, including work, relationships and love. Making sense of what is happening for us allows the self to become more cohesive and strong.

The more we know what is going on inside, the more we can self activate, gain clarity, act upon our real desires, gain inner strength, improve self functioning or coping ability and foster healthy relationships. So, one feels more in control of their actual life.

Nancy gently contains emotional distress, so individuals can work on what they want to achieve in counselling. Nancy works at getting the natural resistance out of the way, so individuals can embrace their real potential in life.
