Anxiety, Stress Management and Relaxation

Depression is one of the most common of all mental health problems, and left untreated can be debilitating in nature. Exploring some of the core life factors so as to address the source of depression is as important as treating the corresponding symptoms of depression.
Individuals who have been subject to trauma from a range of situations, often experiencing complex trauma, require intensive support to address these concerns. Despite some temptation to avoid the challenges that come with trauma, these concerns tend to compound and therefore require more immediate attention.
Grief and Loss
Experiencing a significant loss is unique for each person. It may be the loss of a close relationship, loss of health, or the loss of a job. It can be a very difficult process and getting professional support can be of great benefit to your healing.
Addictions and Dependencies
Addictions can often be a coping behaviour that left untreated can lead to further problems over time. If you are concerned about your drug and alcohol use for example you may be noticing how central it is becoming to your way of life. Confronting these issues may change your life for the better.
Youth and Family Support
Often it is difficult for young people to either seek counselling or to be steered into counselling by parents or loved ones. Given the natural stages of development and life challenges that youth are faced with it is understandable that these reservations may be present. Youth need to feel understood and heard for their valid concerns, and when a genuine interest for support is conveyed meaningful change may begin to occur. The needs and interests of all family members often need to be attended to when addressing the family dynamic.
The tendency of some men to want to be self reliant, stoic, or overly self determined can lead to isolation and sometimes depression. Finding humility and vulnerability of expression can often be followed by improved intimacy, connection and communication with loved ones and greater self-empowerment in their endeavours.
Individual and men’s group therapy sessions are available.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my personal coaching sessions with Monique. I learned to unpack my confused thought matrix and embrace the deeper issues at hand. She has a gentle way of helping you to suspend self-judgement and stay with a creative process. Monique does not leave you in the shadows of complacency. She finds the right moments to extend the boundaries of conventional thinking. I felt myself making cosmic connections so I had a holistic picture of the solutions available to me. In her reflective session I felt the exciting possibilities pulsate through my brainwaves and this has motivated me into action. The moment of ‘doing’ as such, was inspired and not cumbersome. I recommend Monique’s coaching services to anyone who wants to unleash potential and be their most authentic self. She is a master at her art, which is to help you colour in your life, without staying inside the lines!
