About me

What is counselling?

Counselling focuses on providing you with an opportunity to talk through your difficulties and explore different solutions or ways to manage them.  It can be helpful when there are many or sudden changes in your life.

How can counselling help?

Counselling can be helpful for people who have common difficulties likes stress, depression or anxiety.  It can also be helpful for people who have problems that are more difficult, like problems after trauma.

Counselling can benefit people in different ways.  There are no guarantees, but generally, the more you put into counselling the more you'll get from it

What should I expect at my first appointment?

During your first appointment (which will be an initial assessment), you will be given the opportunity to discuss your difficulties and decide whether counselling is the best type of help for you.  The focus will be on how you feel about your present life and what you want to be different in the future.
