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.

Sub-conscious or Conscious that is the question

We all work from a conscious or sub-conscious processing the difference is that as a sub-conscious process we are not normally in a decision based process more in a reaction based process. This reaction is based normally on a historical experience or an inferred action process based on knowledge, unless it’s a safety issue then it will normally be based on a primeval reaction.

If we experience in over previous life that when someone moves their hand quickly it will hit us and cause pain then any quick hand movement might instigate a response of moving away or hitting them back, without thought or conscious processes. This reaction will not be a thought out process but instead an immediate reaction which will happen without any pre-thought. If this is something that we have learned and is not a problem in interacting with others the likely hood would be that we were never aware of it. If for example someone had grown up within a religious family and every time a family member made the sign of the cross when passing a graveyard then from a young age we may never be told that it was right to react this way but that by watching the body language of others it became a consistent process, then it’s likely we would grow up acting out this way when we passed graveyards.

Now again this might never be a problem but say we learn to drive and in heavy traffic we took both our hands off the steering wheel of the car to make the sign of the cross then that might endanger life by having an accident, someone else in the car might see it or take exception to the danger of this movement and say something to alert us to the danger of what we do. In this example then we might move that behaviour from a sub-conscious process, just a reaction, to a conscious process where we have thought and we might then modify the behaviour, from the input of the accident or the other person in the car. Then we would likely create and new sub-conscious reaction, due to the input given of a safety issue, of maybe not doing this crossing when driving whilst still doing it when maybe walking or not being the driver of the car, or we might even stop the behaviour completely now that we are aware of it.
Its estimate 82% of each person’s day is governed by sub-conscious reactions, that’s a scary thought isn’t, what are doing when we are not aware of when we are actually sub-consciously doing it.
