Why have counselling?
There are many different reasons why people seek counselling and it can be difficult to ask for help when you need it the most.

Counselling can help to alleviate your distress, help you to be less self-critical, support you to process and make sense of your experiences and leave you feeling more in control of your life.
If you feel conflicted and that life is getting on top of you, taking some time out to talk to a counsellor can help you to find some breathing space, clarity, and improved emotional and physical well-being.

Increase your confidence by learning how to compassionately address the negative self-image you may have.
Expressing your thoughts and feelings in a safe and non-judgemental environment can be an empowering and life-changing process.
Are you ready for change?

Some of the many issues I have helped people with are;
Depression, anxiety, bereavement, relationship difficulties, anger, long-term health issues, stress, feelings of guilt or shame, abuse, domestic abuse, trauma, redundancy, low self-esteem and coping with change…
