The Meaning Behind The Name  


Everybody has a story to tell 

In our lives, we can experience challenging situations and upheavals that are overwhelming.  These events, may take us beyond our 'normal' capacities for coping.  When someone is faced with a major crisis situation, there is a tendency to want at some stage, to discuss the experience, dilemma or event with a trusted person or persons.  At times, though we may have mixed feelings regarding who, how much detail to divulge and what should be 'open' for discussion. It really can be an overwhelming experience.

Unfortunately, a person may assume that disclosing there difficulties may be a burden to others, it may be assumed that the dilemma and its impact may be minimised by others not involved.  At times, unsolicited advice may be offered which was not beneficial or appropriate for the circumstances. This may create a fractious situation which potentially may cause a person or persons to 'shut down' if not supported appropriately.  

So, what can you do? Maybe see a counsellor because........
It can be quite a significant experience and a relief when a person feels that they are not alone. It can be extremely validating to not feel judged but supported within a safe and neutral environment, can be extremely healing.  Even sitting with someone in silence and being in the moment can be significant and cathartic.  

Every person does have a story and a journey that is interwoven with many intricacies and variations. Sonder Counselling Services believes that you don't have to tell every minute detail of your story but enough to feel comfortable sharing and that will assist the counsellor to form an understanding and a context to support the client.  Counsellors are not here to cause further pain. For many clients the greatest gift is learning the significance of trust, and that they are not alone. 

This can be the start of the next chapter of your story -  because everybody has a story to tell.
