In Courage: ‘It takes courage to tell your story’

In COURAGE Counselling’s soulful approach helps people overcome struggles.

In an increasingly fastpaced, social media warped, politically strained world, we are exposed to overwhelming amounts of anxiety-provoking messages.

With 1 in 4 people experiencing mental health related issues and only 15% of these receiving support from the NHS, mental health is hitting the headlines more than ever.

Charlotte, founder of In COURAGE Counselling, admitted it is still a subject that many people find very difficult to talk about.

“There is still a huge fear of judgement and a sense that we have to suffer in silence,” she explained.

“But if we can’t express what is going on for us on the inside, we often act out our struggles in detrimental ways.”

Inspired by her own counselling experience, Charlotte qualified as a psychotherapist and chose to take a more soulful approach with her counselling practice.

“Whilst other therapies may just deal with symptoms, I work with the ‘whole’ person to help them find the root cause of their struggles,” she said.

“I believe it takes courage to seek support and want to understand what is going on at a deeper level.

“Bringing conscious understanding of how our history may have influenced our relationships, life patterns and behaviours can be an empowering gift to yourself and those around you.”
