Can counselling help me?


Counselling can help with a variety of issues, these broadly fall into one of two categories


  • Mental health issues
  • Relationship issues


Counselling has been shown to help if you wish to:


  • manage anxiety, stress or anger
  • overcome depression, including post natal depression
  • move on from separation and divorce
  • desire a deeper understanding of personal or professional relationships
  • better manage work related issues
  • cope with bereavement or other loss
  • improve your self-esteem and confidence
  • find more meaning in your life
  • adapt to life changes such as age, disability or illness
  • address issues involving drug, alcohol or other forms of addiction
  • find ways to deal with domestic violence
  • need to talk about rape or sexual abuse
  • discuss your sexuality and gender
  • talk about your childhood
  • work on sensitive issues around shame and guilt
  • speak about dissociation and trauma (including post traumatic stress)
  • learn more about yourself and develop mindfulness
  • change unhelpful behaviours
  • cope with phobias


Even though this is long list, it is by no means exhaustive. We know you are not defined by a set of symptoms or issues, counselling accepts the whole of you. If you are unsure if counselling is right for you please call one of our counsellors and they will be happy to listen and help you determine the best way forward.


If you are struggling with physical symptoms then please talk to your doctor. They may determine that the symptoms are psychosomatic (originating from mental or emotional causes or are aggravated by psychological factors) in which case your doctor may suggest counselling as part of your treatment.
