I have been asked a few times why I chose the name Waypoint Counselling. To answer this question, I point towards the dictionary definition of the word “waypoint”.
“A waypoint is an intermediate point or place on a route or line of travel, a stopping point or point at which course is changed” (Oxford Dictionary)
For me, life is a journey and the role of the counsellor is to meet each individual where they are on their journey and get an understanding of where they want to be and help them get there. Maybe you want to come to counselling to process some trauma from your past or to better deal with anxiety, depression or daily stress. A good therapist will become a waypoint for you, whether you just want a couple of counselling sessions or stay in therapy for years. For many, having the support of a counsellor who walks alongside them without judgement can be a truly healing process.
Like most journeys, sometimes we can find ourselves going in a direction we don’t want and counselling can help people find new positive direction to steer themselves on a healthier course. It is a true privilege for me to be part of your journeys.
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
