In today's world, social networks are shrinking. The number of people who report having no intimate friends is increasing. Simple eye contact, along with a caring "tell me your story," can go a long way toward diminishing someone's feelings of alienation and aloneness. Counselling provides the chance to talk things through, very often relieving emotional pressure, clearing the way for people to focus and decide what to do next. Just like you seek advice from a doctor for health issues, a counsellor can help to give you tools for better decision making and improved mental health. "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change." - Carl Rogers Gold Coast Counselling, NLP and Family Mediation Based in Currumbin, Ghita Andersen is a professionally trained Counsellor, NLP Practitioner and Family Mediator.

How Ghita Works Using the best technique for your situation, Ghita will provide a practical and supportive approach to explore what is causing you to feel unhappy.

Who Goes to Counselling? Everyday people (Doctors, Tradespeople, Parents, Teenagers), turn to counselling when they need support, or are at a crossroads in their lives. Every year, 1 in 5 Australians face emotional, financial or relationship challenges. Couples and Marriage Counselling When things are not perfect in your relationships, it can be daunting to consider help, and scary to admit to friends and family. However, counselling is a confidential process that has been proven, time and again, to have been a lifesaver for many couples. Most couples say that it was the best investment that they ever made in their family.
Couples Counselling Benefits One of the areas where marriage counselling can definitely benefit a married couple is in the arena of communication skills. Relationships are one of the most difficult things we attempt as humans and communicating with each other is one of the single most problematic areas for many married couples. Ghita uses the following methods with her couples:
