Did you know that healthy people also go to counselling?

Did you know that healthy people also go to counselling?
I know right, it was a surprise to me also until a few years ago. My understanding was that only people who were desparate or really messed up went to counselling.

You could say that there is some kind of stigma attached (wrongly) to people who see the need to attend counselling. I am here to tell you that the truth is something quite different.

You are actually the expert in your own life, that’s right, you and no one else. Sure, we can get a little blind-sided at times and things that are obvious to others may not register in our minds. However, that doesn’t take away from the fact that you are the CEO and ultimate decision maker in yourlife.inc

My first experience of counselling was when I sought out a local counsellor for some advice. That advice was in fact around whether they thought I would be suited to the profession. So my idea was that I would go along to the session, tell the person what I need and they would tell me precisely what I needed to do. Oh, how misguided I was!

The very first thing they said after welcoming me to the counselling room was that they weren’t there to tell me what to do, but rather, to come along side and help me figure things out for myself. What a huge disappointment I felt deep in my spirit. After all, if they couldn’t tell me, how was I to work this out?

Enter counselling 101, active listening and an empathetic listener as my guide. By the end of the hour long session, I had managed to talk out what I was thinking, sought some guidance and had a good idea of my next right step, wow! (disclaimer: you will most likely need more than just one session for most things)

I felt energised, reaffirmed and positive that counselling (counsellor) had a part in my life and the very next year, I began my studies in counselling. But that is a subject perhaps for another post or 3 🙂

Let me finish by saying that if you are stuck or struggling or simply looking for some help with goals or direction in life, whatever the need, having a chat with a qualified counsellor is most likely going to be of significant benefit to you.

If you need a recommendation, feel free to contact me and I will be only too happy to refer you to someone suitable in your area.

Some very simple Weight Loss Tips

As I mentioned in last week’s blog post ‘A Journey of 1000 miles starts with one step“, it was time for me to become more serious about losing weight and weight loss in general.

I am happy to report that I have managed to achieve this goal (well at least for 7 days) and of course, 7 days doesn’t a weight loss target reach. And so I went searching again (maybe just like you) to discover some simple weight loss tips and came across the following article.

Some simple weight loss tips
Fall River Herald News
Jamie Walker, co-founder and president of the online health community Fit Approach, www.FitApproach.com, shares her tips for shedding pounds and living healthier. 1. When preparing meals, consider proper portion sizes for vegetables, lean proteins,

As mentioned, men should be drinking at least 3 litres of water per day. Well, I really do try and achieve this mark, but I have to tell you, it ain’t easy. Right now, we are in the middle of winter here in Australia and the need to drink 3 litres doesn’t seem applicable. However, I am committed to the concept of wieght loss and therefore I shall persist with this and other tips.

Please share by making a comment and offering what successes and helpful tips you have found in your personal quest for weight loss and weight management. I look forward to reading some great ideas!

Cheers for now, Peter 🙂

A Journey of 1000 miles starts with one step

Hi there! Welcome to my new blog!

Indeed a journey of 1000 miles starts with just one step and so does the plan to become more healthy and achieve a greater level of fitness.

An apple a day, right?

As I am now enjoying the 2nd half of this journey, the vigor of youth starts to slide away (and in it’s place a few extra pounds) OK, well maybe more than a few 🙂

I read this interesting article this evening and thought you might enjoy; Three habits are key to weight loss and sustained weight control, a new study finds.
