What is counselling?

When you have found your counsellor, someone who you feel comfortable sharing your thoughts with, you can begin your therapy.

In a safe environment with a qualified counsellor’s presence, you will have the opportunity to address and understand your feelings, thoughts and fears and get closer to your authentic self.

With greater awareness of the difficulties, you may also realise the opportunity to positive change for yourself.

Why do people look for counselling?

Have you ever experienced feeling stuck and not being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel?

Have you ever found yourself in a dead end in your relationship?

Have you ever thought that your life has lost its meaning, it’s sense of purpose?

Have you ever wanted to escape from unpleasant feelings?

Have you ever felt unworthy or unlovable?

We all have these feelings from time-to-time and learning to trust ourselves and to work them is how we can begin to heal. You can make this journey in the presence of a professional counsellor.
