Talking to someone outside of your circle of friends, family or work colleagues can help when you are troubled by emotional issues, mental health problems or life events. I offer a safe and thoughtful space to explore what is happening for you; we will work together to think about ways to cope with, or find a way through, your problems
As well as looking at the current situation it can be useful to think about how past events have affected the present. Awareness of this can shed light on how you react to problems and why patterns of difficulties seem to repeat themselves. How much or little of your past history you choose to talk about is entirely in your hands; you are in charge of what you want to discuss in the counselling sessions.
Sometimes people say their problems are not serious enough for counselling and this can put them off seeking help. If something is causing you distress and is important to you, it is good to talk about it, no matter what the problem is.
Counselling is one of many ways of managing life's challenges and there are many different types of talking therapies. To find out more about counselling and therapy please click on the links provided:
