How Counselling Can Help

Counselling can help if:

  • you are feeling stressed and anxious
  • you wish to improve your relationships
  • you lack feelings of self-worth
  • you feel low, sad or depressed
  • you have suffered loss, bereavement or other trauma
  • you frequently feel lonely and isolated
  • you suffer from physical symptoms with no clear organic cause
  • you seek greater self-knowledge
  • you wish to develop your potential
  • you are worried about feelings and emotions, you cannot explain, or have difficulty managing

How can Counselling help?

  • by offering a reliable and confidential relationship free from the pressures of ordinary life
  • by offering support during times of crisis or transition
  • by deepening awareness of yourself and your relationships
  • by offering a safe place where you can speak about feelings that worry or frighten you
  • by making sense of recurrent problems
  • by exploring their links with the past
  • by challenging tendencies to repeat unhelpful patterns of behaviour
  • by clarifying choices and helping resolve old hurts and conflicts
