This is a sort of counselling “blog” to give you a flavour of how I work. You can find more information about me by clicking one of the links above. This blog was previously at http://www.pcrc.berkshire-website.co.uk where historical entries from November 2008 can be found.
Sometimes we feel out of control, and of course things can happen to us that we can’t control – people close to us may move away, we might be made redundant, we might become ill.
There are also things that we can control, though it may feel as if we can’t. Maybe you are being bullied at work, for example, or maybe you find yourself drinking too much and feel that it’s bigger than you are.
The first step in taking control can be to identify what you can control – and what you can’t. Then you can try to change the things that are in your control and try to accept and be at peace with the things you can’t control. If you are trying to change things that are outside your control you have little chance of success. If you focus on the things you can change, you stand a chance – and then you can start to take small steps to regain control of your life.
