Why Counselling?

People come to counselling for all sorts of reasons. Here are just a few of them:

  • feeling stuck or trapped
  • to identify why ‘the same old things keep happening’ and how to change this
  • overwhelming emotions
  • support in times of crisis
  • self-harm
  • finding self-confidence and self-esteem
  • help with relationships and family issues
  • a search for identity, direction or meaning
  • specific problems which are ‘getting in the way’ of living life to the full
  • support in dealing with life changes e.g. new baby, retirement, changes in health, bereavement.
  • coping with stress or depression
  • making decisions
  • learning to live and cope with past events

There are many more - as many reasons as there are individuals. Your reason does not have to fit into a neat ‘slot’, neither does it have to be specific or well-defined. Whatever you come with can be worked with. Sometimes, however, there might be another counsellor or support agency that would be better placed to meet your requirements, and in that case I will discuss this with you and help you look in the right place.
