About U Counselling & Psychotherapy
Dublin specialises in the following areas: Coping with Depression, Addiction
Counselling, Couples Counselling, Anxiety Counselling, Cancer & Counselling,
Bereavement Counselling, Employee Assistance, Anger Management, and Sexuality
Anger Management Counselling
Anger, though it has its place, may express itself inappropriately, either towards others or yourself. We cannot control anger provoking situations, but we can manage our attitudes to them and how we react. Anger management counselling will look straight to the sources of your anger to get it in context. About U then put strategies in place to manage it and to minimise anger confrontation or self-harm.
Counselling to Cope with Depression
There are many reasons why we can be frustrated in our ambitions. Fear of failure, lack of self worth or perhaps lack of confidence after many years bringing up children. We may feel very stuck and trapped in the work that we do or the life we have with no purpose or connection to the world around us. Creativity can be stifled and eroded through a lack of self-esteem thereby continuing the cycle of feeling unfulfilled.
The manifestations of anxiety may range from mild apprehension to fully-fledged panic attacks and phobias. Panic attacks can often be associated with agoraphobia. Many sufferers of agoraphobia can become prisoners in their own homes. Phobias involve fear being directed towards one specific object, activity or situation, which is then avoided. For example fear of spiders, flying, enclosed spaces and heights. Many people suffer silently and secretly for years. This does not need to be the case.
Addictions come in many forms and About U Dublin specialises in counselling for alcohol addiction, gambling addiction, drug addiction, eating disorder, and sex addictions. The counsellor is experienced in a harm reduction / minimisation approach to substance misuse. Each client will have their own particular set of goals, which can be reviewed, if necessary, as work progresses. The importance of addressing underlying issues is recognised. This may be painful work. By supporting clients in working through these issues, the risks of relapse can be reduced.
Cancer Counselling Course
This Psychological / Physiological / Educational course gives men an opportunity to learn all they need to know about prostate and other cancers. It is a six week course with numbers limited to a maximum of eight men per course. The course is given by qualified and experienced counsellors who are men that have personal experience of cancer.
Grief is a natural and positive emotion. It enables us to heal from the inevitable sadness and losses of life. However we all grieve differently. Some feel devastatingly pained by it, they can talk of nothing else and appear to be stuck and unable to move on. Others believe that they need to suffer in silence. Current losses may have triggered off old unexpressed grief from childhood. The feeling about the lost person may not have been straightforward. A difficult relationship may result in a confusion about grief. Grief is also complicated when the person has not died, for example a divorcee or broken family relationships. About U counsellors can help to guide you through the different stages of bereavement.
Employment Assistance Programme (EAP)
An Employee Assistance Programme is a confidential support service available to assist employees with any difficulties or challenges they are experiencing at that particular time. The purpose of an EAP is to provide employees with access to confidential counselling and information services to assist in dealing with a broad range of issues such as personal, work, financial or legal issues. When employees are worried or concerned, it helps to have someone who will listen. When that person is a skilled counsellor or a specialist in a particular area, then you are taking the first step to resolving these worries or concerns. Apart from receiving support, you will discover your own strengths, skills and resources.
The most secretive part of oneself, the private self, containing all the excluded and hidden desires and impulses. There is a deep wound for both men and women around our sexuality; it is hard to bring this to the surface. Fears, taboos hidden desires are cloaked in shame. Society mirrors this with how we should be to fit into and conform; public persona can hide a private experience around our sexuality. To begin to explore our sexuality can feel deeply exposing, a sense of nakedness and vulnerability and fears. Stripping the layers away to the most hidden parts of ourselves. At its core feelings of annihilation, destruction and death can be experienced. However, our sexuality is also our creator, to sit in the fire holds the huge potential for transformation.
Counselling for Couples
families as we've known them seem to be falling apart at a rapid rate,
inevitably this leads to feelings of hurt and anger. It often puts into
question our ability to trust again and experience feelings of loneliness,
rejection and loss. Relationships with our children can be tense and this
can result in feelings of guilt, anger and sadness. In order to understand
our own relationship difficulties
we first need to take the courageous step of developing a more intimate
relationship with ourselves.
