What is counselling?
Counselling is an opportunity for you to talk about your thoughts and feelings in a safe environment without fear of judgement or criticism. Whether you are currently experiencing difficulties or you want to understand yourself better, speaking to a professional can help make sense of things.
Counselling works by creating a space in which you experience being understood and heard. There are times when it can be too difficult to talk to those who are close to you, as they may be dealing with their own difficulties or may be unable to hear what you are really saying.
Why come to counselling?
People seek counselling for many different reasons. You may be experiencing relationship difficulties, or perhaps there has been some major life event which has affected you. Or maybe you are struggling with stress, anxiety or depression and want to understand what triggers your negative thinking patterns.
Coming to counselling doesn't mean that you are unwell or unable to cope with things. If anything it shows that you have the courage to face reality head on and look at the things that are challenging you.
