Maybe you are in pain. 2015 was a troubling year, and 2016 does not look to be any better. Maybe it is just an irritating itch you've put off getting sorted out, and are looking to straighten that up very soon. Maybe it is something that has bothered you for years, and for some reason it is getting harder and harder to merge into a happy life, leaving you in a state of anxious, miserable survival. Maybe something unexpected has happened, and 2016 is not going to be the year you thought it was, bringing with it grief, shock and excitement.
Whether it is a six session 'tune up' to help you get started on the right track in 2016 or you want some long term support to make the changes you need, counselling can be a great place to start. Many people like to keep a constant check on themselves, and use a few session each year to raise their awareness, sort out some 'itches' before they become too annoying and generally refresh themselves with good human contact. This can be a great way to 'service' your well-being and make sure you are ok for the year ahead and any surprises that come along. It can also be good to keep a counsellor 'in your pocket'. Someone you've already met, worked with a bit and know you can go back to if anything more troubling occurs.
Perhaps you are reading this for yourself, or a friend or relative, that is really in need of something more substantial. Even if you've left it a long time, it is never too late to step into therapy and begin your journey to wellness. Sure, you could put it off another year, spend another year living in boredom, anxiety, stress or depression. But if you keep doing the same old thing, the same results will occur.
