Hello everyone, and welcome to Wednesday’s new ongoing series, where I’ll be showcasing the blog posts that the graduates of my workshop via onlinevents experiential workshops have written.

In this week’s post, Tonia introduces her second blog post in her new series, which leads us to think about counselling in a different way.

In this post, Tonia challenges us to think about counselling as something more than a cure for ill-mental health.

It can also be a preventative measure to ensure we keep mentally healthy.

Therapy can be about so much more, and the things affecting our lives can be very subtle, as Tonia mentions in her post.

She also talks about a topic dear to my heart – self-care. There are subtle things we tell ourselves that hinder our lives in small or great ways.

Have a read of Tonia’s post to find out how counselling can help with these.
