About Counselling

What is counselling and how can it help?

People seek counselling to help resolve a range of issues. They may be experiencing difficult and distressing events in their lives, such as bereavement, divorce, health issues, job concerns, or they may have more general underlying feelings of anxiety, depression or a general dissatisfaction with life.

For many of us, there are times when life can be challenging and events in our personal or work life can be overwhelming. At these times, we may turn to friends and family for help and support. But sometimes this is not possible, or not enough, so we can feel alone and unable to cope.
Some clients come with difficult or painful life experiences, and some feel low and just don't know why.

It is at these times talking things through with someone who is not directly involved in your life can be beneficial. Counselling will give you the opportunity to be with someone who is trained to listen attentively, and discuss personal issues that may help restore the balance to your life. Counselling can enable us to understand ourselves better, make changes to how we think and feel about things and help us to cope with challenges, so we can lead a fulfilling and happier life.

As a counsellor I provide a confidential, safe, non-judgemental and supportive space for you to explore issues to enable you to take control of your life, resolve your difficulties and increase your sense of well being.

Counsellors and psychotherapists help people to talk about their feelings, think about their choices or their behaviour, and make positive changes in their lives.
