There are are many reasons why people seek counselling, you may be experiencing relationship difficulties, dealing with feelings of loss and grief or have lost self-esteem and lack confidence.
You may be struggling with the after-effects of childhood abuse and don't know how to move on from painful memories.
Difficult, unmanageable feelings of anger, sadness or fear could be making you feel overwhelmed, anxious and/or depressed.
Whatever is troubling you, sharing your experience with a counsellor, someone unbiased, who will listen to you with out judgement is therapeutic.
Therapy can be reparative and transformative. It can offer you a feeling of empowerment as well as heal traumas and psychological wounds.
The counselling process can enable you to work through your feelings, move on from painful issues, and help you to lead a more fulfilled, happier and healthier life.
