Counselling (sometimes called psychological therapy or psychotherapy) is a confidential service that enables you to talk through worries or situations that are causing problems in your life and helps you to better understand and manage them.
Sometimes life can feel stressful and overwhelming, you might want to look at issues from the past or the present that are causing you difficulties and preventing you for leading a full life. It could also be that you are struggling with your emotions but you are not sure why you are feeling this way. Such issues may be leaving you feeling sad, frightened, confused, angry or guilty. You might be feeling stuck and want to make changes and move forward but you are unsure on how to go about this.
You will be given the time and safe place to freely explore your feelings and issues. You can be confident that when sharing your thoughts and emotions you will be met with understanding and acceptance, free from prejudice or judgement. You will be supported in making sense of your feelings and finding a way of moving towards future happiness and well-being.
You choose what you want to bring to counselling, based on what is most important to you.
Here are some examples of issues that you may want to discuss:
- Depression / low mood
- Stress / Anxiety / Panic
- Low self-esteem
- Chronic Pain and Illness
- Caring responsibilities
- Eating difficulties / disorders
- Relationship difficulties
- Work place issues
- Addictions or obsessions
- Loss of direction / purpose in life
