Why come to counselling?
Sometimes it is difficult to know what’s wrong – just a vague feeling that all is not well, or an anxiety or depression that seems to have no clear explanation or solution.
Other times it is more clear what the problem is but friends and family just don’t seem to be able to help, or it may be too hard for whatever reason to open up to them.
You may feel embarrassed, ashamed or afraid to speak about whatever is bothering you. It can be such a relief to talk to someone who understands.
I aim to provide a safe, supportive, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to bring your problems and feelings, and to be able to talk freely and openly about what is troubling you.
Counselling helps you to become more self-aware, which means you will be better able to understand why you feel and act as you do and how you relate to yourself and others. Your uniqueness is important to you and it is important to me and together we can explore what it means to be you in the world.
