Counselling and psychotherapy can offer you a confidential, non-judgemental space where you can feel safe to talk and be properly heard. We work together with you in order to process the issues you’re facing, and give you the time to explore your feelings and emotions, no matter how difficult or unpleasant you feel these may be.
Most people at some point in their lives will struggle with painful feelings or may feel overwhelmed by past or present experiences. Together you and your counsellor can work through what’s going on for you, help you gain awareness, and support you to work on a way to move forward. Counselling is not just for supporting people through a crisis, as many people also come to counselling to explore and get a better understanding of themselves and their lives.
People can start counselling for many reasons, such as:
- Feeling overwhelmed by stress
- During times of loss or loneliness.
- Feeling generally unhappy
- Difficulty coping with the death of a loved one.
- Feeling anxious, concerned, or worried about life and the future.
- Feeling challenged by difficult life events
- Experiencing relationship difficulties with a partner, family member, friend or colleague.
- Low self-esteem or confidence
- Following redundancy, or wanting to change career
- Life stage transitions
- Feelings of frustration or anger, sometimes from nowhere
- Simply needing support.
Whatever difficulty you are experiencing, counselling offers you a place where you can be understood and heard, safe in the knowledge that your words and feelings will be treated with dignity and respect.
