An important focus of our practice is to provide quality psychology services to individuals and families. These valued clients typically book in to see us for a number of confidential one hour consultation sessions, where we provide selected tools, strategies and techniques to deliver the ideal outcome, uniquely tailored for each person. To maintain the quality of our work helping people gain consistent positive outcomes over the past twenty years operating in our community, we are very selective in recruiting the right professional staff to join us as team members. Accordingly we are delighted to announce that Ms. Roz Erdelyi, a widely experienced Psychologist has recently joined our team and is available immediately for client consultations in our Southport office. Please enjoy reading a little bit more about Roz in the following paragraphs where she highlights aspects of her warm and supportive professional style. “I am very excited to be joining the Guidelight Psychology practice, I’m passionate about utilising positive psychology techniques to assist my clients to overcome adversity. I believe that empowering my clients to face the challenges of life in an adaptive manner, assists them to develop emotional resilience and a reliance and belief in one’s own abilities to cope – in doing so, further developing confidence, self esteem and positive life outcomes.
I respect each and every client’s individual differences and assist people to clarify their own personal values (without judgment) as a helpful basis for developing future life and treatment direction.
I have worked with clients from diverse social, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds and am devoted to providing a confidential and respectful environment free from judgment, in which my clients can obtain the therapeutic outcomes they seek, regardless of their circumstances or personal history. “
Across the range of interesting clients we appreciate being able to work with, we regularly encounter hard working individuals who are seeking to change old patterns of behaviour that are keeping them in a rut. Aspects of their life can feel stunted, or not well grounded, leading to restrictions in the level of joy, excitement and zest for life currently being experienced by that person. One form of powerful breakthrough to help people move out of that rut in their life is to explore the concept and feel the emotional shift associated with choosing to “ Let Go” !
This can be a challenging step if the person mistakenly assumes that letting go is a sign of weakness or capitulation or failure. Nothing could be further from the truth ! Appropriately letting go requires wisdom, courage and trust in yourself.
If this concept of wisely “Letting Go” of past limiting patterns or personal setbacks seems important to you at this point in your life, then please enjoy taking some moments to reflect on the following selected themes :
“To Let Go” does not mean to stop caring. It just means accepting I cannot do it for someone else.
“To Let Go” is not to try to change or blame another, it is to make the most of myself.
“To Let Go” is not to be protective, it is to permit others to face reality.
“To Let Go” is not to adjust everything to my desires but to take each day as it comes and cherish myself in it.
“To Let Go” is to fear less and love more.
If you are finding it difficult to let go, call Guidelight 07 5527 0123 to arrange a confidential appointment with one of our caring counsellors.
Across a 12 month calendar cycle we committed to the rigorous task of coding the number one reason a client stated as to why they had booked an initial consultation with our practice to seek assistance with some aspect of their work or home life ( or both ). The size of our sample base of clients was over 1,000 people drawn from all walks of life around the Gold Coast and Brisbane regions
27% of people identified that the number one reason they were not currently performing or feeling at their best was because of difficulties associated with Interpersonal Issues. This meant that they were having some level of communication breakdown, conflict, disharmony or mistrust with at least some of the people they worked with. The workplace issue could have been with colleagues, or customers or suppliers or all of them, but the common point is that problems with some aspect of work related relationships had negatively impacted the mental health and well being of our individual client.
A further 26% of clients that we assisted with an initial consultation over that 12 month period told us that their number one reason for them seeking an appointment was to deal with difficulties created by relationship issues with people in their home life, such as spouses, children, relatives and neighbours.
Combine these two categories and it is revealing to understand that more than half ( 53% ) the people who had the good sense to seek professional assistance to find solutions and regain peace of mind when they experienced a problem affecting their mental health, booked an appointment because of unresolved issues with other people.
Many of these issues were quickly fixed through skilling our clients to develop crisp, clear communication strategies and learning advanced positive psychology techniques to change the previously negative impact of the situation on themselves.
People wisely consult their lawyer for contracts advice and their accountants about tax advice, so it is appropriate more of us start to consult our psychologist about relationship and communication advice.
