WHAT IS COUNSELLING?
Counselling is time set aside by you and your counsellor to look at what has brought you to counselling. This might include talking about life events, (past and present), feelings, emotions, relationships, and ways of thinking and patterns of behaviour. I will do my best to help you to look at your issues, and to identify the right course of action for you, either to help you resolve your difficulties or help you find ways of coping.
WHY COME FOR COUNSELLING?
Usually people choose to come for counselling because they are experiencing difficulties and distress in their lives. Life issues and events may be very difficult for you to deal with such as abuse (emotional and sexual), anxiety, anger, bereavement and loss, bullying, anxiety and depression, disabilities, eating disorders, relationship issues, self-confidence and self-esteem, self-harm, sexual issues and sexuality, suicidal thoughts, and work related issues. Or you may be experiencing underlying feelings of unhappiness with life in general, or be seeking balance in your life and spirituality. All of these reasons and more will bring individuals to counselling.
