Spiritual issues

Spirituality involves experiences of a deeper sense of meaning and purpose in life, and a sense of belonging. Spirituality can help to achieve inner peace and happiness. It relates to the human spirit, and discovering the ‘true self’.

For some, spirituality does not relate to any kind of belief, but relates more to how they live their life, and their outlook on the world. It can be a path that will lead them towards a higher state of awareness of the self, and having a better way of life. Some see spirituality as a life source that flows. For others, spirituality helps them feel more connected to a higher being, God, or the universe, and connected to everything and everyone around them. Counselling can help explore these ideas or perhaps resolve the spiritual crises many people find they encounter in life. Being able to explore different ideas and beliefs without judgement can be hugely rewarding and allow individuals to develop that part of themselves and develop a sense of

  • being honest
  • able to focus, be alert and attentive
  • being able to rest and relax and have a peaceful state of mind
  • having a deeper sense of empathy for others
  • being of help with someone who is suffering
  • having better judgement
  • able to deal with grief and let go of the past.
