So when they then come across something like the Humanitas Counselling Course information, it is completely understandable that many are sceptic and that both legal and ethical concerns are raised.

When innocence is stolen

TRIGGER WARNING: CHILDHOOD SEXUAL ABUSE | Sexual abuse victimizes a person,  and the partner can play a crucial role in the recovery and healing process of the abused. The love and support of a partner, friends, and family, can encourage the process of healing. It is crucial for those surrounding the abused, to understand the mixed signals they convey daily. The abused can; in many instances, turn to their loved ones for help, but in the wink of an eye, turn against them.

Everyone in our lives can need a caring, non-judgmental, and empathetic room at some point in their lives. When the time comes, the relationship you already have will serve as a basis for constructing this "container" in which you keep space for the other individual. If you accept the challenge, your desire to be of service to the other person will be the first building block for holding that sacred space.

Anxiety – Fighting The Monsters Of Our Day (Article 1)

By |

Anxiety, Fear, Worry and Concern. Hopelessness, Loneliness and Isolation. Distrust and Paranoia... These are just some of the monsters who have taken up, what often feels like, permanent residency in many of our homes and communities. In a series of articles, I would like to address some of these monsters, one by one, so that we can actively start evicting them from our mental and emotional homes. It won’t be easy, and some of them are persistent little buggers, who will fight us tooth and nail to maintain control and power. But we are stronger, we will persevere, and we will do what it takes to stay true to the course on this journey to emotional and mental wellness.

Selfsorg vir beraders, sielkundiges, maatskaplike werkers en terapeute

Om daagliks, uur na uur saam met iemand deur hul diepste seer, hul donkerste vrese en hul grootste teleurstellings te werk, eis sy tol.
