Counselling provides a safe, impartial and confidential space in which to explore your feelings. Talking to a counsellor in a professional environment, safe in the knowledge that what you say will be listened to in a non-judgemental way. Counselling can help you to understand what is at the root of the concerns, and help you to work to resolve them.
All of us at some point in our lives will experience times when we feel that we are overwhelmed or cannot cope. These feelings often impact on other areas of our life leaving us feeling that we are unable to live life happily. This may be the time to seek out a counsellor.
Feelings such as anger, grief, anxiety and depression can be distressing and cause anguish especially if they have been with us for a long time. Counselling can help you to explore and reflect upon these feelings. It can help you to understand what is at the root of the concern, and can help you work to resolve the difficulties
