You might want to know about counselling before your first visit. Perhaps you want help for a problem? Or to have more self-awareness, better understand your feelings or try new things? Counselling could be your answer.

What is Counselling?

Counselling is the activity of discussing your problems with a qualified mental health counsellor. Your counsellor will listen and give you full attention. Sometimes, an understanding ear might be all that is needed. Discussing things makes them clearer. You may learn new skills and new ways to look at things. With counselling, your understanding broadens and confidence increases.

Reasons why people come

Clients come to see us for many reasons. You might have a problem you can’t quite cope with by yourself or a vague feeling that something is not right and you want to talk it over. You might want to explore your world-view, take a new direction, get more out of life or be happier. Or improve your relationships and self-confidence.

You might be anxious or stressed, or dealing with something unexpected. If you’ve lost a loved one or a job, received bad news or there’s a serious illness in the family, talking things over can help ease the change and stress.

You might want to stop smoking but cannot quit by yourself. Often smoking is related to other problems, such as anxiety and stress. Managing these problems as well as quitting will get you where you want to be – healthier and with more money to spend on better things!

Problems that clients bring to counselling include addiction, anxiety, depression, grief, panic, phobia, relationships and recovery from abuse or trauma. Some people feel anxious all the time but don’t know why. If you would like to book a counselling session, go to the Counselling Booking Calendar.

The Corona Virus

At the present time, the COVID-19 Pandemic is causing anxiety for many people. Their lives have been turned upside-down. Work and study is now taking place in the home instead of at the office or school. The potential for domestic violence in vulnerable families and relationships is increased. But, while we cannot change the bigger picture, we can take charge of what we do ourselves. We can learn strategies to manage our feelings and avoid catrastrophising. What is happening now will pass, and life will resume a new normality, with the same challenges as before, and probably a few new ones. If you need help to talk things over or manage strong emotions, reach out and get in touch. See the links under the ‘Counselling Bookings’ menu tab and make your appointment today.

Coping with life-changes or milestones, such as children leaving home, menopause or a parent dying could bring you to counselling, In fact, any problem relating to how you are feeling or thinking could be a reason to visit a counsellor. They will let you know if they can help you, and if not, point you to someone who can.

Whatever your concern, counselling can be a rewarding experience. You can gain confidence, independence and a new lease on life. If you need help, why not give it a try?
