How Can Counselling Help?
Counselling is a talking therapy. It is different from discussing things with your family, friends and colleagues. A trained counsellor will help you to explore what is troubling you and also to express and explore your inner most thoughts and feelings. Everyone can benefit from counselling.
As a counsellor I do not judge. I offer you respect, confidentiality, and I will value you as a person. The counselling process is reviewed regularly. We will decide together when the time is right to end. This will depend on your particular situation and needs.
Counselling can be useful for many issues and the following list is just an example of the areas of support people come to counselling for.
Low self-confidence & Low esteem
Bereavement and loss
Separation, Divorce, & Marriage Problems
Anxiety Stress & Panic Attacks
Loss of Identity, Lack of Purpose & Loneliness
Addiction, Drug & Alcohol and Substance misuse
Rape or Sexual Assault
Painful Childhood Experiences
Post and Prenatal Depression
Health, Feeling Low and Unhappiness
Life Changing Decisions
Greater Personal Fulfilment
These are feelings that all humans can suffer from at some time in their lives and unfortunately prolonged negative experiences can reduce the quality of your life. This can become damaging to relationships not only with others but also to the relationship you have with yourself.
