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
- 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
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.
