We all have times in our lives where talking to someone can help us find the solutions to our problems. At times though, it can feel like there is nobody to turn to that can listen, without judgement and where it feels safe to openly express how you are feeling inside. You might be feeling sad, anxious, worried or scared and get to a point where it can all be starting to feel overwhelming.
Talking to a counsellor in a safe space, where there is no judgement or criticism about the choices you have made or the experiences you have lived through can help to make sense of it all and enable you to make positive steps towards finding the right way forward for you.
The relationship between client and counsellor is one built on trust and empathic understanding and can be a powerful experience that changes lives. If this feels like the right time for you to start your own counselling journey, please feel free to get in touch. Counselling is for anyone who wants to invest in getting their life on track.
Typical problems that people bring to counselling include low-mood, depression, feeling stuck or trapped, anxiety, stress, feeling unhappy at work, eating issues, over-doing drink, drugs, gambling or computers, relationship issues (work or personal), identity issues, family problems, bereavement, career uncertainty or dissatisfaction, life-stage issues (eg mid-life crisis, retirement), a sense of something being ‘not quite right’ or a desire for greater well-being or personal development.
'The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.' Carl Rogers
