Most of us experience difficulties at some time in our lives. They might be about something specific, a loss or bereavement for example, or perhaps feelings of general dissatisfaction with life, or loss of sense of direction and purpose. Bottled up feelings such as anger, anxiety, grief and embarrassment can be very intense and, left unchecked, can become a heavy burden.
Counselling offers an opportunity to explore these feelings, with the possibility of making them easier to understand. In a counselling session, you can talk freely and openly in a way that is rarely possible with friends or family. By listening attentively and patiently to what you have to say, a trained counsellor can help you see things more clearly, possibly from a different perspective.
