You might be struggling with anxiety, depression, loneliness or suicidal thoughts. You might be worrying there is something wrong with you, or feel isolated. It may be that you have had a relationship breakdown, suffered a bereavement, or be worrying about someone in your family. So many different feelings and situations can bring us to counselling.

Counselling offers you a safe and confidential space for you to explore your experiences and feelings without judgement.

Sessions take place in a quiet and confidential space, on a one-to-one basis. You will have an hour a week in which to talk about whatever you would like. You will be listened to with great care and attention, and over time, I will work with you to help you to think about yourself and your experiences, through my objectivity and curiosity about your experiences.

I am not there to advise or judge you. In time, you will hopefully build up trust in the relationship and find yourself able to talk about the situations and feelings that are worrying you. Counselling can help with many things too numerous to list here, but including: 

Abuse

 Addiction

 Anger and aggression

Anxiety

Bereavement

Depression

Diversity

Domestic violence

Fertility

Loneliness

Loss

Mental illness

Paranoia

Parenting

Phobias

Relationship difficulties

Sexual issues

Here is a helpful guide to some of the things you might bear in mind when deciding whether to start counselling or not.
