Positive Psychology for Relationship Counselling for Couples

What makes life worth living for couples? Hope, Wisdom, Creativity, Courage, Future Mindedness, Responsibility and Perserverance. When couples look into their Relationship in terms of  ‘us, our, we’  i.e. working as a team on developing and nuturing the above positive traits would enhance and strengthen these basic fundamentals conditions of existence, and if they are present, any amount of objective obstacles can be faced with equanimity and even joy together.

If you live in Cairns and want to make your relationship better than come and see me at runningonempathy.

Happy thought for the day

You cannot have a happy ending to an unhappy journey.

From the Abraham Hicks daily quotes

shame-2If you are on an unhappy journey, it’s time to come and see me so that together we can change your ending. You do want a happy ending don’t you?

Counselling is available in Cairns for couples and individuals. Relationship counselling is my speciality but I also work with all manner of bumps in the journey of life: depression, anxiety, sexual assault, self esteem, anger and life coaching.

Contact Jennifer McCabe, Cairns, for your private and discreet counselling needs.

WHY DO CLIENTS SEEK COUNSELLING

SOMETIMES PEOPLE ‘JUST NEED TO TALK TO SOMEONE’

SOMETIMES THEY ARE IN A CRISIS

THEY WANT TOOLS/TECHNIQUES TO CHANGE BEHAVIOUR

THEY WANT INSIGHT INTO THEIR FEELINGS

IT’S A SAFE PLACE TO EXPLORE DIFFICULT FEELINGS

THEY HAVE A ‘BUSY’ HEAD

AFTER MY COUNSELLING SESSIONs clients should either:-

“HEAR SOMETHING VALUABLE

FEEL SOMETHING REVEALING

OR LEARN SOMETHING USEFUL”

I operate Tuesday – Saturday and after hours if required during the week. My counselling room is at 3/120 Hoare Street, Manunda 4870 – upstairs from Inform Chiropractic Services. Bookings can be made by contacting me directly on my mobile emailing me at runningonempathy at iprimus dot com dot au.
