How Can Counselling Help?


Psychotherapy & Counselling are forms of therapy which can help individuals understand and work through painful and seemingly overwhelming issues. It can help you discover new directions and positive ways of enriching your life

  • It offers a safe and confidential space where personal and private feelings can be explored
  • Issues can be shared without the worry of being judged
  • The time is given in order to make sense of your own concerns   
  • Counselling allows time to identify the problem and to look at alternative options
  • Counselling empowers individuals to make necessary changes 
  • There are many different things you may want to talk to a counsellor about, however, they are not there to tell you what to do

What Sorts of Issues Can Counselling Help With?

  • Self-Harm

During the  first meeting we’ll give you the chance to talk about the difficulties and concerns you are experiencing (past or present).  By the end of this session you will be better informed about whether counselling can help and if it is right for you at this time.
