What is Counselling?

Counselling and psychotherapy are established and respected forms of working with people to enable them to better understand the ways in which they experience and live their lives. By working together in a confidential relationship with a therapist, individuals can explore difficulties and dilemmas in a  safe and supportive setting. Such work does not provide answers or a magic cure for life’s everyday mysteries and discontents, but rather an opportunity to clarify your own unique way of being in the world and the choices available to you. Counselling and psychotherapy may be short or long term depending on invidual preference and need.

Individuals come to counselling for a wide range of reasons, including: Addiction - Depression - Difficulties with relationships - Anxiety - Panic attacks/phobias - Serious illness or bereavement - Eating disorders - Self harm - Emotional, physical or sexual abuse - Trauma - Improving self awareness - Engaging with uncertainty and meaninglessness
