Counsellor Sheree Veysey offers online counselling via Skype and Zoom. . The name life in progress recognises that we and our circumstances are changing all the time, and that we are all works in progress.
Sheree is based in Auckland, New Zealand, and can offer one to two sessions in person (usually in Grey Lynn) for connecting in the first sessions. Sheree is unable to counsel people who are not usually NZ residents.
It can be difficult to reach out for help, especially the first time, but appropriate support can make a real difference. WINZ subsidies may be available for those on a low income and experiencing stress, anxiety or depression. Sheree is certified as HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) knowledgeable.
Counselling is an active process and you are the best judge of whether it is helpful or not. If you decide that you’d like to find other support, Sheree is happy to direct you to a range of other counsellors, information or professionals that may be of use.
Self care is not self indulgence, but self respect.
Unlike self-criticism which asks if you are good enough, self compassion asks, what's good for you.
Your life does not get better by chance, but by change.
Feelings are important information. They are not the only information we should pay attention to by any means, but feelings are important information; they need to be noticed and not judged.
You are enough, not because you did or said or thought or bought or became or created something but because you are.
