counselling as a form of self-care
When people really listen to themselves and their needs, all too often this is referred to as being ‘selfish’. Your wellbeing is paramount to living a fulfilled life. Sessions can help you to develop a tool kit to manage life demands, support your emotional wellbeing, increase self-understanding and awareness, enhance self-esteem and attend to YOU (not the labelled you… Insert: mum, dad, wife, husband, child, friend, work role etc). Furthermore, by attending to your own needs you are better positioned to give to others as well – if that’s what you want.
So, Selfish or… Self-care, self-compassion and self-love?
