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.
In the film Ghostbusters, when ghosts are captured they are placed in an electronic storage container, which keeps them safely out of harm’s way. Safely, that is until a government official decides the container is a hazard and shuts off the power. Then the ghosts escape and wreak havoc in New York City.
And it can be like that with our emotions – we can store them safely out of sight – until someone or something ”turns off the power” and we are engulfed in a flood of emotions – typically fear, anger and sadness.
And just as the ghosts wreak havoc in NYC, so too can such a flood of emotion wreak havoc with those near to us.
Counselling can help you to find safer ways of dealing with your emotions, perhaps by letting things out gradually, letting your friends and family know if you are annoyed, sad or fearful, rather than bottling things up until they escape in an uncontrolled way.
