Why counselling?  

There is a new awareness today of issues surrounding mental health and emotional intelligence. We can all struggle at times to recognise our feelings and to respond to them adequately. Life can throw difficulties in our path which cause stress, anxiety and frustration. The way we respond to problems may reveal  deeper hurts, or unmet needs, causing emotional pain and a feeling of being lost. Just as physical pain pushes us to go to the doctor, so emotional pain causes us to seek help. This can begin with friends and family, but sometimes it’s good to talk to someone who is trained to listen and to ask the right questions. 
In the counselling room you can talk freely about whatever is on your mind, without worrying about repercussions to other relationships. As counsellors we adhere to a professional code of practice which includes confidentiality, respect, impartiality and empathy. We don’t have all the answers, but we’re here to support you as you explore your thoughts and feelings and try to make sense of life. If you feel you would benefit from counselling, or would like to know more, please get in touch by sending us an email.

The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.
