Helping those who help others

Stressed out and at your wits’ end?

When was the last time you took care of yourself?

Have you ever asked yourself:

“When will I have time for myself?”

“Why am I so tired?”

If so, you are definitely not alone!

Many people walk through life without knowing how to take care of themselves. Relaxation is not part of our education system and I hadn’t heard the term “self-care” until I was in post-secondary school. Finding good ways to relieve stress for your lifestyle can take time.

Whether you work in a hospital, a shelter, care for family in your home or anywhere else that serves others on a daily basis, you are more than likely getting frustrated and exhausted with the pressures in your life. Regardless of how you pump yourself up to go to work in the morning, or how many times you decline your friends who have invited you out, you just feel stuck.

You so graciously assist and aid others on a daily basis and find time to listen or make a very important phone call, but you have no time for yourself.

You crave a life where you are not constantly trying to “catch up” with things.

Maybe you experience:

  • exhaustion from everyday life
  • feeling alone because you have no energy to go out after work
  • jealousy of others who seem to have time for themselves
  • depression with no way out
  • being frustrated and lashing out at your loved ones
  • having days or weeks when you call in sick
  • panic attacks for no known reason

If you are experiencing any of the above problems, you need to keep reading…

You can eliminate stress and pressures from your world to become the person you want to be.

Through individual counselling, you can achieve:

  • Energy levels that allow you to spend time with your loved ones
  • A complete and healthy self-care regime
  • Fulfillment in the workplace
  • Thoughts of happiness that motivate you to explore and appreciate those things around you
  • Maintaining loving, cherished relationships
  • A balance between your work and your home that enables you to get the most out of life

You don’t have to suffer alone. Counselling can help.

Counselling is a process of working together to find the activities that suites your schedule and allows you to maintain a happy life-style as you help those under your care. You can reduce the pressures you experience daily. You can have the frame of mind to empower yourself and be able to challenge anything that comes your way.

Counselling is a safe place for you to vent out what is bothering you and somewhere you can work on yourself without feeling selfish.

What makes me different from other counsellors and therapists?

I have over six years of experience aiding individuals, couples and families with struggles that you may be dealing with today.

I am passionate about improving, supporting and promoting self-care and mental health to others.

My travels and life experiences have given me a worldview that aids me with each and every part of you.

I work from a person-centered approach so you can have a backpack full of skills that work for your way of life. The approach enables you to use your own inherent abilities to heal, because the only expert on you is YOU. I use treatment plans made up of mutually laid out goals on the short-term and long-term, so progress can be seen with each session. 

If you want to be cared for, consider counselling with me at Leanne Dorish Counselling & Resources.

What you need to do:

Call me to book an appointment.

If you are not ready to book an appointment, but would like to chat about your needs and how I would be able to assist in your self-care, give me a call or send me an email to schedule your FREE, confidential 15-minute phone consultation.

    Hi Dear
    I have been experiencing a lack of energy and negative feeling about my work. I heard in the past about counselling, and I think it’s not a bad idea to hear your opinion about possible strategies to follow.
    Thank you for your answer,
    Best regards

      Thank you for your email.

      When it comes to low energy, there could be a change in diet, a change in exercise, or even a change in heart. A combination of these is not uncommon too.
      With the negative feelings about your work, try to remember why you chose that work in the beginning. What were your reasons and how did it make you feel?
      Life transitions happen all the time and sometimes they make us view our routine differently; which then makes us ask new questions of ourselves.

      Does this help? I hope so.
      If you would like to chat further, just let me know. Email or in person.

      Take good care,
