Where do I go from here?


​Making that first step to see a counsellor can be daunting, especially if you have no previous experience of counselling

Counselling is about offering a therapeutic relationship with a trained professional to help you understand the underlying causes of your problems and find different ways of coping with life’s challenges.

As we journey through life, we can all experience  difficulties at some point. But these difficulties will be different for each individual. Whether it be current stresses and worries or an aspect of life that is troubling you, counselling can help you:-


  • ​By gaining a greater insight and understanding into your thoughts and feelings and actions
  • By providing new perspectives on your situation which allow you to have a greater range of choice and possibilities in your life
  • By providing support during difficult periods in life, such as bereavement, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, anxiety or depression
  • By helping you sort out your priorities and make clear choices about the future
  • By supporting you in facing difficult feelings 


This will help give you a better awareness of who you are and what you need.  It can be both empowering and freeing, enabling you to see things clearly, move forward and to make positives changes in your life.
