What is counselling?
When can counselling help?

Sometimes counselling is the best way to start to tackle difficulties in our life. The reasons for seeking counselling may be varied. You may be experiencing any of the following:

  • Be unhappy with how you are feeling or behaving
  • Feel dissatisfied with your relationships
  • Lack confidence
  • Loneliness
  • Anger
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Loss of a relationship
  • Feelings of hopelessness

What can counselling offer?
Counselling is an opportunity for you to explore difficult issues in a safe and confidential space. The counsellor will not judge you but will support you in finding your own strength to deal with the issues.
Often people come to counselling because they are experiencing some relationship problems. It may be that you recognise that things are not as you would want them. You may feel frustrated in the need to change yourself, others, work or life in general. Often we recognise that we are repeating old patterns of behaviour that inhibit us from moving forward.
In order to understand our own relationship difficulties we first need to begin to develop a more intimate relationship with ourselves. Counselling can provide support for you to explore your own world, to discover what is meaningful and of value to you. From understanding come new opportunities to learn and practice new skills. Make new choices and the ability to create more of what we want in our lives. This can become the gateway to a richer and more fulfilling experience.
At the healing rooms we offer individual, couple and group counselling, support for eating disorders and counselling supervision. Please check individual counsellor's details for further information.
