Look to Eleanor Bigden for a gentle, holistic and encouraging approach to CBT Counselling in Waterloo.
We all know about training our bodies, but not enough people know about training their minds, despite the fact our inner-most thoughts have a significant impact on our lives. When we get hooked into painful spirals of self-defeating thinking, for example, we may not know how to get our minds truly unstuck and focussed on a more helpful course.
With so many of us being brought up to hide and judge our emotions or to push them to the side, it can catch up on us and leave us feeling anxious and even ashamed when we feel overwhelmed, stressed, lonely or nervous. We may not have ever been taught to relate to difficult emotions in a truly constructive way.
