If you have not had counselling before you may have questions about what it involves.  You may feel uncertain about committing your time and money to see a counsellor when you do not know whether it will help.  Hopefully the information I provide on my website along with the video link will help answer any query or reservation you may have.

'Talking therapies can help with many difficult life problems - from coping with traumatic experiences and events, to dealing with depression and anxiety or managing harmful emotions and behaviours'.

Counselling might be beneficial for you if…

  • Something has been troubling you over a period of time and you are having difficulty finding a solution on your own

  • Things are getting on top of you, and affecting your well being, for example, causing depression, anxiety or stress

  • You find it hard to talk to friends or family because they are directly involved in the issues

  • Issues from the past are having an impact on your day to day life

  • Things that are troubling you are having a negative impact on your relationships or work

Counselling can help you reflect and make sense of difficult life events and find a way to move forward. 

Some of the benefits are…

  • Talking to someone neutral, outside of your immediate situation, can show you a different perspective and help you find a way forward

  • Talking with a trained counsellor who is skilled at listening can help you to process difficult thoughts and feelings

  • Sharing your worries helps you feel less alone with the problem

  • You can gain a better understanding of yourself and a clearer sense of what you want and need

  • You can practice communicating more clearly and honestly in the safety of the counselling relationship

  • Counselling can help improve your relationships and your ability to communicate
