How can counselling help?
Counselling aims to help you deal with and overcome issues that are causing pain or making you feel uncomfortable.
It can provide a safe and regular space for you to talk and explore difficult feelings. The counsellor is there to support you and respect your views. They will not usually give advice, but will help you to find your own insight and understanding of your problems.
Counselling can help you to:
Counselling can often involve talking about difficult or painful feelings and, as you begin to face them, you may feel worse in some ways. However, with the help and support of your therapist, you should gradually start to feel better. In most cases, it takes a number of sessions before the counselling starts to make a difference, and a regular commitment is required to make the best use of the therapy.
What to expect from counselling
During your counselling sessions, you will be encouraged to express your feelings and emotions freely. By discussing your concerns with you, the counsellor can help you to gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes, as well as identifying ways of finding your own solutions to problems.
The counsellor may encourage you to identify issues and, if appropriate, take personal responsibility for them. They will be able to help you recognise the effects of other people and their actions, and explore alternative ways of coping with them.
It can be a great relief to share your worries and fears with someone who acknowledges your feelings and is able to help you reach a positive solution.Let's Talk

Thank you so much for the support and guidance. It’s really helped to build my confidence, set personal goals and be assertive. I now can go out with friends, enjoy life more and look forward to the future.
I have found therapy has changed my life. I no longer feel disconnected from the world, on my own and isolated through EMDR. I have made sense of the traumatic events in my past and now look forward to the future with optimism.
Thank you so much for working with my 15-year old daughter. At school she suffered a great deal of anxiety because of exams and this affected her confidence with friends, her self-esteem and she found it hard to manage her social-media. As a result of therapy, she effectively can manage stress due to exams, her self-esteem has improved and she now deals with social media in a more resilient manner.
