What brings people to counselling?

Ever felt worried, down, stressed, sad or scared? We all experience these emotions from time to time, and they usually pass and we move on. Sometimes though when you find yourself in a difficult situation such as divorce, losing a loved one, relationship difficulties, problems at work or with your children, the feelings don’t pass so easily and you begin to feel stuck. At times like these it can be helpful to to talk to a qualified, professional, caring counsellor.

As someone who has no vested interest in a particular outcome, a counsellor can provide a non-judgemental, unbiased, listening ear. Exploring with you what has happened, why that might be and how it feels for you to experience that situation, and what might be the best way for you to move forward. Many Clients come to counselling looking to work in a short-term way on a particular problem or issue in their lives.

You may however be someone who has had a bereavement, or experienced abuse which has been difficult to deal with; or perhaps you might have been told by your GP you have anxiety or depression. In these cases you may be looking for longer-term support to help you come to terms with what has happened, and to be able to experience life in a more fulfilling way.

Alternatively, you may have a teenager who is struggling with their school life, exams, bullying, self-esteem, relationships or just growing up, and you don’t know what to do to help them. They may benefit from talking things through with someone, outside of their everyday lives whom they can share how it is for them.
