Counselling is a form of Talk Therapy that helps individuals with psychological and emotional issues to explore their difficulties in a safe and confidential setting.
There are many reasons why we all need to speak to a counsellor at some point in our life. It does not have to be after experiencing a traumatic event but it often can be.
Counselling can help individuals when they are experiencing personal difficulties such as exam stress, bereavement, relationship problems, family problems, harassment, bullying, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, or dealing with stress whether work or personal, or to overcome a phobia – for example sickness phobias, animal phobias or agoraphobia to name but a few.
People come to therapy when they need a non-biased person who doesn’t know them to help them to work through a dilemma they may be facing. People also come to therapy when they are trying to come to terms with understanding what ADHD & ADD is and to understand what OCD means. In other words, there are lots of reasons why people seek therapy at difficult times in their life.
The opportunity for a client to think and talk about a difficulty(ies) they may be facing in their life in a safe, calm, confidential and non-judgemental environment can not only bring about a sense of relief to that person but also helps them make meaningful changes to their life and their relationships.
Counselling can help individuals make sense of difficulties they experience which affect their mood, their behaviour, their feelings, their thoughts and even their physiological well-being.
