What is Counselling

Counselling provides you with a safe place to be yourself and to say how you truly feel in confidence without fear of judgment, criticism or unwanted advice.  Our counsellors will not tell you how to solve your problems, but will help you find your own solutions.

When something is getting you down, counselling can help you gain a clearer understanding of your emotions and can help you to see your own strengths, resources and opportunities you may not have seen before.

There are many times in our lives when counselling may be helpful, including times when we are coping with major changes, times when we are dealing with losses, or times when our self-esteem and confidence is low.

Counselling can provide guidance, help taking control of your life, or just be a listening ear.
