Cognitive Behavioural Therapy ( CBT ) and Counselling may be helpful when dealing with difficult issues such as, stress, anxiety, loss, depression, anger, low self -esteem, relationship Phobias, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, panic disorder, difficulties and trauma. It could be that we are looking for a new direction in life, or are feeling stressed and unhappy. Talking with an independent, trained person who adheres to the BACP /BABCP codes of conduct can be useful in increasing ones own sense of well-being, happiness and reducing anxiety.
