Are you looking for some help to support you through whatever is troubling you? Is something not quite right and you need to talk to someone? Eunice Gan, our resident a qualified counsellor offers counselling services to individuals in Bangkok. I am here to listen – providing that safe, private and non-judgemental place where you can be heard, and be helped as you explore your thoughts and feelings and consider making changes to improve your situation.
Problems for which counselling can offer help:
- Worry & Anxiety
- General feelings of indecision and fear
- Low Self-Esteem
- Difficulties and Stress at Work
- Relationship Challenges
- Managing Change
What can be said of the relationship between you the client and your counsellor? In essence it is
- Private and confidential
- Non-judgemental and unbiased
- Solely based on trust and empathy
When it is difficult to talk to family and friends about what is causing us anxiety, worry and stress, because the matter at hand may be very personal, or we don’t know whom to trust, or we fear that they will think us weak or silly – talking to a counsellor may be the answer. The counsellor works alongside you to understand what is troubling you, and why – and help you facilitate greater self clarity to identify areas in your life where you want change, to be more effective and happy.
Eunice Gan, founder of Evolve to New Beginnings, is a Certified in Choice Theory/Reality Therapy with the Dr William Glasser Inc., of which I am also a member. Besides her counselling work, she also has extensive corporate experience with senior responsibilities in sales and marketing, as well as in corporate training – from which I honed significant leadership and mentoring skills. These, I believe, stands her in good stead to especially help people who face anxieties related to workplace challenges such as stress and conflicts.
On a personal note, she am blessed to have come through significant challenges – crisis and change – in her life journey, the experiences of which now enriches her to better understand human behaviour – helping her to help others when they go through unhappy episodes in their lives.
- How do I know if counselling is for me?
Having to talk to someone about what is troubling you can be overwhelming. It takes courage. The first right step would be to meet for an initial consultation and for you to then decide if we could work effectively together. After the first meeting, you can also decide to go to someone else. However if you do decide to meet regularly we will identify a time and date, and agree on the duration of the counselling.
- How long is each meeting? What can I expect?
Each meeting lasts about 50 minutes. The counsellor strives to build a trusting relationship with you, – leading with questions that help you talk about what is the problem at hand. The counsellor neither gives advice, nor judge – putting aside her own views, values and beliefs, but listens to, and respects yours. Along the way, goals of what you want to achieve through the counselling shall be identified and you would need to commit to work with the counsellor to achieve the results you want.
- How many times do I have to meet?
The number of times to meet can be discussed and agreed upon at the consultation meeting. Counselling can be for a short period of time over an agreed number of sessions. It can also be without any fixed time limit. The counsellor will review this with the client as the counselling progresses.
- Can the meeting be over Skype?
Yes – if it is not convenient for the client, skype sessions can be organized at a mutually agreed date and time.
