Stress Management Solutions

Directed Counselling

Most counselling seeks to explore the root cause of an problem before attempting to resolve emotional, mental or physical issues that may affect an individual.

Directed counselling is more concerned with addressing a specific situation through high impact counselling - where the problem is already known e.g. stress. It can provide you with effective management strategies and techniques to better cope with stress.

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)

NLP is all about language - and it provides questions and patterns to make your communication more clearly understood. NLP teaches you to better understand how language affects you through both implicit and embedded assumptions. NLP provides you with the skills to define and achieve your outcomes or goals and a heightened awareness of your five senses, allowing you to remain flexible, on track and maintain rapport with those around you.
