Low self esteem, what people essentially believe are facts about themselves, are more opinions about themselves which can be based on a host of factors that have played a role in their lives. Extreme low self –esteem is detrimental to the daily life of a person and is often indicative of deeper issues which can be dealt with in individual counselling.

Low self-esteem may also be a problem in some cases of life change such as adolescence and retirement. Working on increasing self-esteem can have a positive and far reaching effect on many areas of one’s life.
Self awareness is about knowing yourself, what do you like, what don’t you like, where you are going in life, goals, what are your values, what do you find acceptable in your life, how are you going to get to where you want to be in life and how you deal with relationships. When you are more self aware you are better equipped to make informed decisions and move forward in your life. When you are not as self aware you may get stuck, procrastinate or make poor decisions. A good self awareness also assists one in dealing with obstacles better.
Socialization is the individual’s ability to integrate into and become a contributing member of family, work and social circles. Often individuals struggle to socialize effectively in one or more of these areas and individual counselling is highly successful in dealing with more effective methods of socialization.
Dealing with conflict

Individual counselling deals with these issues as well as the prevention of certain potential conflict situations.
Anxiety and worry

At some point in our lives we all deal with physical, emotional and psychological trauma in various forms. This includes witnessing trauma or someone close to us experiencing a trauma. Individual counselling deals with all of these issues and helps the person overcome and cope with symptoms of trauma. Symptoms of trauma may include re-experiencing the event for example in flash backs, feeling numb, loss of concentration, certain places or sounds triggering you to feel like you are re-experiencing the event, feeling agitated or experiencing lack of sleep. If at any point you think you are suffering from any of these symptoms and they are negatively affecting your daily life it may be helpful to seek counselling.
