How can Counselling help?

Counsellors will not give direct answers to your problems but will help you to find your own answers and to develop more effective ways of coping with everyday life and feelings.

Counsellors are trained to listen to you and sometimes to ask questions or reflect on what you say, giving you a space in which to explore and better understand your thoughts, feelings and relationships.

Counselling gives you the opportunity to talk about what you choose, in a confidential setting, with a trained counsellor.

Group therapy gives you the opportunity to talk with other people, also in a confidential setting, and with a group conductor, lessening anxieties that you might be alone in how you feel, and giving you different viewpoints on your concerns.
