What is counselling?
Therapy offers you the opportunity to explore the areas of your life where you are struggling, with a trained professional, who is there to listen to how it is for you. It offers the opportunity for people who are facing difficult decisions, or finding it hard to cope with life, or who just need a safe space, to talk about their feelings.
What is the process?
You and your therapist will be meeting at the same day and time weekly for up to 20 weeks. Together you will decide and agree on the approach that is best for you; you may wish to explore in depth the issues that are making you feel anxious, depressed, stressed, stuck, or unable to cope. Alternatively, you may use a solution focused approach, with a focus for the sessions, to help you to explore your options, reach decisions, make choices and find your own solutions.

What are the benefits?
