About Counselling

Imagine if you could:

Wake up and go through the day with ease and a sense of calm

Fall asleep easily at night and wake feeling rested

Feel more confident in yourself and your self-worth

Feel clear about where you are going and look ahead with enthusiasm

It IS possible to feel these things, but as you are here I imagine you are struggling.

Perhaps you feel anxious a lot of the time and overwhelmed.

Or maybe you are struggling with feeling disconnected and frustrated with your relationships.

You may have been suffering with low self-esteem from events that happened a long time ago and you long to be rid of these feelings.

Or perhaps life just seems flat and meaningless.

If you connect with any of the above, or any other of the many other ways in which we can suffer, you are not weak or flawed. Just human.

Everyone deserves love and support when life gets too much, but sometimes we get in the way of ourselves by piling blame and self-loathing onto the problems we already have. That's not going to make you feel better. When things get too much, maybe what you need is support from a professional. And that's ok.

 

Here are a few ways Counselling can help: 

  • It gives you a dedicated time and space to speak to someone who won't judge you.

  • It can help you make sense of things and understand yourself better.

  • It can help you manage your emotions, and generally make life feel easier.

  • It can help you resolve complicated feelings, or find a way to live with them.  

  • It can help you recognise unhelpful patterns in the way you think or behave, and find ways to change them (if that is what you want)
     

I know what it is like to be thinking about getting professional help, wondering if it is worth reaching out and easing the heavy load. I've been there myself, and discovered the benefits.
