Counselling Sessions in Pretoria Can Help You Live a Full Life

Nobody can honestly say that they were fully prepared for 2020. The year has thrown an uncanny number of unexpected – and highly challenging – situations at us, many of which are unlike anything the majority of us have ever had to deal with before. Add this to the expected stress and challenges of everyday life, and it is no wonder that most of us are having a hard time processing it all. Whether you feel completely overwhelmed or simply off centre and are struggling to find your rhythm,… Continue reading

Married people live longer

Single men have mortality rates that are 250% higher than married men. Single women have mortality rates that are 50% higher than married women (Ross et al, 1990). Having a spouse can decrease your risk of dying from cancer as much as knocking ten years off your life. Single people spend longer in the hospital and have a greater risk of dying after surgery.

The Purpose and Benefits of Seeing a Family Therapist

Our
generation is living in unprecedented times. There is absolutely nothing wrong
with you if you are finding life truly challenging at the moment. As the novel
coronavirus continues to threaten our health and force us to stay in our homes,
previously suppressed issues might be boiling over under pressure. This is not entirely
unexpected, as we are isolated from the outside world and forced to spend
extended time with our household while under immense pressure. This could, of
course, also be a great time for introspection and to rebuild connections… Continue reading

Relationships can be hard work, but also really fulfilling. Everyone deserves to be loved and respected, but life is never just straightforward and easy.

Improve the Quality of Your Life with the Help of one of
the Leading Pretoria Psychologists

No
one needs to tell you that life is filled with its fair share of challenges.
Every day we fight some sort of battle, big or small. At times, we might feel
invincible while, at other times, we struggle to see the light at the end of
the tunnel. This is a very normal and very human experience and everyone goes
through this in some way or another. However, it is so important to realise
that you never need to tackle all of this… Continue reading

Families Under Strain Should Consider Consulting A Family
Therapist

We
are all individuals with our own quirks, habits, and triggers. We have our own
ways of experiencing and dealing with situations. Yet, we never exist on our
own. While this social support structure is usually a positive thing, it can,
at times, lead to challenges and even conflict. This is especially true when it
comes to those we are close to and with whom we spend the most time. Our
families (whether it be blood relatives, adopted, fostered, or chosen) are
usually these people. What is meant to be a… Continue reading

Couples Counselling Can Dramatically Improve the Quality
of Your Life

Relationships
are one of the most beautiful things that can happen in life. At its most
healthy, it is nurturing, comforting, inspiring, and a source of strength.
However, life is not perfect. Daily pressures and stresses take their toll –
from financial worries to health concerns, job stresses, and everything in
between. This bombardment from all sides can lead to frustrations in a
relationship. People change over time and if a partnership does not keep up, it
can lead to miscommunication. Couples
counselling provides a way to address these changes… Continue reading

Breek Vry van die Boeie van Stres met

nie. Jy kan uit hierdie bose kringloop van ongeluk breek en weer beheer neem
