A reviewers comment
Love the tools , light bulb moments and things to think about sections that create a pause and help whatever idea to sink in as well as the diagrams explaining some of the processes people go through. Altogether a very useful addition for anybody who is in the process of trying to work themselves or how they have come to fit in the world as they do out.

A small investment for years of happiness.


About Us

Hi my name is Ian and I started Counselling Wakefield over 12 years ago. I and my professional associates work at Counselling Wakefield. We are fully qualified to deliver the Counselling, Supervision and the other therapies we offer. I am also the Counsellor for Relate Wakefield and offer counselling services for all WF postcodes, although the Relate Wakefield is a paid for service.

We all have many years of extensive practical experience counselling Client’s. We work with all the areas of life’s conflicts and issues, from helping with your relationships, bereavement, self-esteem, sexual issues and mental health, which may be affecting you. If you feel you are seeking change and seem lost, stuck, or with no one to turn to? Then counselling will help you find a way forward.

If you would like more updates and information then why not drop by my Facebook page and if you like it then please say so. Many thanks Ian

What about you!

So you want to help others that’s a great motivator to make a difference and one which all therapeutic helpers can engage with. Without this motivator most charities and helping bodies would not exist, it’s the giving and caring process that makes the world the place it is. We as professionals will normally have the same motivator, ok we get paid for it but that’s not the main reason most of us commit to turn up and do the work day after day. It’s this helping drive which makes us the people we are and as I have said that is great but what about the title what about you.
We can lose sight of our own needs and our mental health with this complicated drive of helping. Have you ever left your work and mentally taken your Client home with you worrying about them and their life, this as we all know is not a healthy process. You have to disengage from your work to enter your life, without this disengaging we would be exhausted and being unable to carry all our Clients on our backs, which would weigh us down enormously. So although it will not be our most prominent driver, US, we need to give ourselves as much respect, importance and validation as our Clients, after all if we are not healthy we can never help our Clients.

This, what about us, process is hard to engage with as I have said but we have to fight against our priority driver, the Client, and balance ourselves to have a similar prominence and importance. Make sure you don’t underestimate this delicate balance and tip more towards the Client making sure you give yourselves the validation you deserve, don’t feel guilty giving yourself that time and space to gain a mentally healthy life, whatever helps you to relax and de-stress use and if you find yourself mentally taking your client home then see whether something in your life which has not been fully dealt with is engaging, reflect on this and deal with the issue you still haven’t fully engaged and dealt with. Reflect each week on the following questions,

Have I spent enough time on me?
Is the balance between my time and the Client in harmony?
If your answer is no then deal with it re-balance and make your own needs as important as your Client’s.
