what is counselling


What is counselling?

Counselling is about helping you to find ways to live your life more satisfactorily. To feel more comfortable with yourself and your relationships, to feel more in control, to make changes that might be needed, to come to terms with events in your life

Who is it for?

People from all walks of life seek the help of professional, qualified counsellors. Many of us at some point in our lives require counselling and may need help to work through issues for example such as;

  • Anxiety
  • Low self esteem
  • Bereavement
  • Depression
  • Stress Management
  • Loss
  • Relationship issues

How can it help?

As an independent trained listener, a counsellor’s aim is to assist you to find confidence within your own resources to manage the difficulties inhibiting you and your life more effectively.

How long does it last?

Counselling sessions are usaully 50 minutes long and take place on a weekly basis. How many sessions you have will depend on what you want to work on and and what we agree together.

Our work together will be reviewed at agreed intervals.
