If something is bothering you emotionally it can feel difficult to know what to do about it. Just making the first step to finding a counsellor demonstrates your commitment to change, and is a big step towards feeling better.

In counselling, you are encouraged to explore your thoughts and feelings in a confidential and supportive space. You might have a strong sense of what is troubling you, or you might not feel so clear - either way we gently look at what is going on for you, and often this can give you a new perspective and greater insight into whatever is causing you distress.

You might come to counselling because you are struggling with a life event such as divorce, bereavement or having a baby. Or you may come for a specific reason, such as:

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • antenatal or postnatal depression
  • infertility issues
  • relationship issues
  • stress
  • confidence issues
  • loneliness
  • sexual abuse
  • suicidal feelings
