Each of us experiences emotional difficulties or distress at some point in our life and sometimes this can leave us feeling anxious, overwhelmed and finding it hard to cope. Counselling (also referred to as psychotherapy) involves talking through your problems with a trained therapist who can help you to make sense of your feelings, learn about your role in relationships, build confidence and self esteem, address issues from your past and find ways to make positive life changes.
Counselling is effective for a wide range of issues, including: Anger, anxiety and depression, suicidal feelings, abuse, behavior difficulties, low self esteem, loss and bereavement, relationship difficulties, life changes, loneliness and isolation, hopelessness, stress and body image.
Making the decision to come to counselling is a brave and important step forwards to making positive changes in your life. By coming to counselling, you will be giving yourself the space, time and respect to listen to yourself and to be listened to in a supportive and non-judgemental environment.
