The journey of life can be wonderful but it is understandable that most of us will experience difficulty at some stage and this can leave us feeling quite distressed. Our previous coping style may not be effective. People attend counselling for various reason and there is no right or wrong reason; it is unique to you. Feelings such as depression, stress, anxiety, anger may have left you feeling quite overwhelmed and isolated. Sometimes these feelings can be linked to the relationship we have with ourselves e.g. how we view ourselves, body image, self-esteem, self-worth and / or relationships with friends. work colleagues and family. This can also impact on our behaviour be that ways of coping through alcohol, avoidance of certain events, obsessiveness, not being able to talk to people close to us or eating habits (to name a few).

Counselling also provides a safe place for those who may not know the reason for their concern and wish to develop a greater understanding of their emotions, life choices and behaviour.
