About Green Shoots
Have you ever been walking along and noticed a plant growing, seemingly against all odds?
Maybe it's emerging through a crack in the concrete, poking through a wooden fence or clinging to a cliff face.
Some might consider it remarkable that it's still alive, but nothing can prevent its inbuilt capacity to grow and flourish.
Green Shoots Counselling was founded on this premise - that we all have this ability to develop and thrive, regardless of our circumstances.
From time-to-time we need a little help along the way with this. Perhaps depression has fallen on you like a ton of heavy paving slabs, or anxiety feels like a ring of barbed wire that fences you in. Sometimes the simple pressures of everyday life feel like too much and start to affect your mood, self-esteem and enjoyment in life.
This is where counselling may help.
Counselling is different from any other supportive relationship. In a friendship, for example, you're as concerned with what's going on in your friend's life as you are for your own. Counselling provides time that is exclusively for you, offering a supportive, non-judgemental environment where you can explore what's going on, how it's affecting you and what you might like out of life instead.
