Counselling is a form of talking therapy and can help people regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic origin or religion. There are many different reasons people seek counselling. Counselling provides a safe and confidential space for you to talk about yourself and your life with someone you can trust to listen to you. Through this, you can find support to work through a variety of issues which may be causing you distress and/or preventing you from living life to the full.

For example, you may be struggling with:

  • Difficult emotions (anger, anxiety, guilt, depression)
  • Problems in relationships with friends, family, partner or others
  • Bereavement
  • Redundancy/Unemployment
  • Long-term health problems
  • Crisis pregnancy, miscarriage, post-abortion, infertility
  • Separation/divorce
  • Decision-making
  • Lack of motivation
  • Low confidence
  • Parenthood

Counselling may be able to help you with these and many more issues. Alternatively, you may be seeking counselling in order to help you get more out of life in general.

You may find that you do not “click” with a certain counsellor or therapist. We are all individuals and some people will find some counsellors or modalities of counselling (theories and tools used) more helpful than others. If you don’t feel your counselling is helping you, you may find another counsellor more helpful. I may be able to suggest other counsellors you could contact.
