It is based in Auckland New Zealand, with sessions available via Skype for other locations in the country. The name life in progress recognises that we and our circumstances are changing all the time, and that we are all works in progress. 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.
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.
Unlike self-criticism which asks if you are good enough, self compassion asks, what's good for you.
You are enough, not because you did or said or thought or bought or became or created something but because you are.
Your life does not get better by chance, but by change.
Self care is not self indulgence, but self respect.
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.
