If you (or someone you love) are thinking about suicide, especially if you have planned how you want to do it...please call now.
Loss and Grief Counselling
Loss is part of the human condition. There is no way we can avoid loss. It is something we experience from the time we're born to the time we die. We experience losses every step of the way throughout our lives, such as the loss of a job, loss of health, or loss of relationships through a break up or through death, to name a few. Allow me to help you through your pain.
Communication and Conflict Resolution
Conflict is something that can't be avoided no matter how hard we try. It's inevitable because people are individuals with different views, feelings, experiences, and ways of perceiving things. Petra's objective is not to eliminate conflict, but to help you to work with conflict so that it has a positive outcome, such as bringing people closer, or creating new ideas, and new possibilities.
Anger, Abuse and Domestic Violence Counselling
The abusive person is sometimes jealous and often aggressive, threatening, and controlling. They struggle with feelings of inadequacy, low self-worth, and insecurity.Their use of violence may be evidence of low self-confidence and a sense of powerlessness.
The experience of sexual abuse in childhood is one of the most sensitive kinds of trauma addressed in counselling. Petra recognizes that the healing process may be lengthy and that a single counsellor may realistically only be able to help the individual partially heal the pain and effects of the abuse. Petra can guide clients to the right services if and when needed.
Couples and Family Counselling
When doing couple or family counselling, Petra works on two levels. The first level is communication skill training. She finds that most of the problems that couples or families present could be solved by the couples or family members themselves if they had adequate communication skills. The second level that Petra works with couples or families on is to help each of the individuals to gain insight into repeating life patterns, because those patterns are interacting with each other in such a way as to create or exacerbate problems.
Crisis Interventions and Problem Solving
A couple or family can be understood as being in crisis when they're in a fight and one of them says, “There are so many problems, I'm having so much trouble, there's so much stress that I can't take it any more.” Petra loves to work with couples and families, and has many excerises to help resolve problems. Most find these excersiese an eye opening as well as enjoyable experience.
