Boundaries Counselling

Setting clearly defined boundaries is crucial for maintaining healthy, supportive, and mutually respectful relationships. Whether with family, friends, colleagues, or clients, boundaries dictate how others can treat us and reflect our self-respect and expectations in relationships. At Heart Wise Minds, we recognise that not everyone has had the opportunity to learn this vital skill. Our boundaries counselling is designed to empower you to establish and communicate your limits clearly and effectively, enhancing your interactions and safeguarding your wellbeing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Personal boundaries are the limits and rules we set for ourselves within relationships. They can be emotional, physical, or mental, and are essential for protecting our wellbeing.

Many people find it challenging to set boundaries due to fear of rejection, guilt, or lack of self-worth. Counselling can help overcome these feelings by building self-esteem and communication skills.

Counselling provides a safe space to explore and understand your boundary issues, develop assertiveness, and practice communication strategies that respect both your needs and those of others.

While setting boundaries can initially lead to conflict, counselling can equip you with strategies to handle such situations calmly and assertively, ensuring your needs are met while maintaining respect for others.
