FIFO / Defence Force Counselling
It is not always the lifestyle we anticipated we would be in – and anyone living in this lifestyle faces stressors that many don’t understand.
Sometimes families are separated due to a member needing to work away from home. This can impact the emotional state of either the person who works away – or the family members who are left at home. Further, the family dynamic isn’t always enjoyable when the person returns home.
The separation, disconnection, longing and missing, communication or lack thereof, etc can affect people negatively. This can impact our day-to-day lives, and then we are in a negative emotional state because of this.
Long-term effects of such a lifestyle could result in personal ongoing emotional issues; and at worst, families don’t always recover and end up separating indefinitely.
With so many variables to each situation, I am experienced in counselling people in this area. We can work through the troubles you are going through, and put in practical practices that can help you in your current situation. Or sometimes, you just need someone to talk to.
A better emotional state would mean a better life, for both yourself and the person you are separated from.
I cater to those working away, and to the families that are left at home.
Contact me if you think we would be a good fit.
