We believe that we can all aim to make positive changes to our lives and we already possess the ability to do so. As your Counsellors and Psychotherapists, it is our role to promote your own emotional and mental healing.
We support you to revive the inner strength that lies within you. Whatever the nature of the pain, stress or problem you are currently experiencing, steps toward change can happen and OCS is here to assist you with finding the missing pieces to the puzzle.
Conventional medicine alone cannot be expected to provide all the answers to life's emotional, psychological and social problems. We firmly believe that there are other effective approaches and methods of improving emotional well-being, other than just taking doses of medication.
We are not against the use of medication, as in certain situations it's necessary and very effective. Lengthy experience in the Counselling and Therapy field has taught us that while drugs can be lifesavers in the short term, on their own they may not be the ultimate answer to solving the problems. Some drugs can be addictive and sometimes pose side effects, which are not often apparent from the onset.
Combinations of medication, where necessary, together with Therapy and Counselling can be beneficial to the client in the long run. The Online Counselling Service believes in getting to the root of the issue, treating the problem, not just the symptom. This involves taking an in-depth look at the cause, as well as the result and solution.
As Psychotherapists and Counsellors, it's our aim to assist you to look at the aspects of your life that require development and to help you to eradicate harmful beliefs or thoughts that may be contributing to your ongoing distress. We are here to help you to improve your emotional state, as well as obtaining and maintaining a healthy mind, body and spirit.
With tailor-made therapeutic support and by slowly redeeming your own personal power, you can develop long term coping skills — skills that you can then apply to any and every aspect of your life.
Our focus is to provide a non-judgmental atmosphere, a place where clients feel comfortable to express themselves while receiving fresh insight that is geared at creating life-changing solutions.
