At some time in our lives, most of us experience times when we could benefit from counselling. It could help to explore relationships and reasons why they appear to be difficult. Counselling may also help with work and stress related issues. Alternatively, it could be to talk about feelings of emptiness, depression and low self worth. You may also feel distressed, isolated, helpless or burdened.
Counselling provides a safe place to explore your thoughts and feelings. A counsellor is trained to listen with attention, understanding and the ability to reflect on what you say in a non-judgemental way.
It is important that when you feel in need of counselling help, you can find someone who you can trust and is professionally trained. It is important that the counsellor is caring and empathetic.
