Why have counselling?

People come to counselling for many different reasons. Some because they do not wish to share their worries with family or friends, no matter how great their support is, out of worry of upsetting them, being a burden, or being given misguided advice or biased opinions. Some feel they have exhausted other avenues, or because they recognise that their current ways of coping aren’t helping.

Counselling offers a safe space to explore thoughts and feelings giving you the opportunity for growth and change.

Even if your thoughts and worries seem trivial to you, finding out why they are bothering you could make a huge difference to your life.

It can help you to...

  • Gain better self-understanding and self-awareness

  • Let go of guilt and shame

  • Stop self-harming

  • Become less defensive and less insecure

  • Learn more effective, healthy, coping strategies

  • Gain a fresh perspective

  • Find some balance in life

  • Gain a greater ability to trust yourself

  • Have healthier relationships

  • Improvement in self-expression

  • Gain a healthy sense of change

Unfortunately, therapy is not a ‘magic wand’ or a ‘quick-fix’. If the issues which you wish to address are long-standing, then recovery may take time and effort. Therapy can be difficult at times, especially in those situations where issues have been pushed away for a number of years.
