Are you fed up of feeling low, stressed or anxious? You can now refer yourself to our local provider, Dorking Hospital, for talking therapies.
If your doctor has referred you to a counsellor we can offer counselling with Mrs Evelyn West.
How can counselling help me?
All of us face ups and downs in our lives and often we can find ways of coping, but at times difficulties seem overwhelming or never-ending. This in turn can affect not only emotional well-being but also physical health, ability to work or relationships with others. The difficulties may arise from:
- Anxiety or depression
- Bereavement or loss
- Stress at work or at home
- Relationship problems
- Identity crisis
- Unexpected change or crisis
- Lack of confidence
- Feelings of worthlessness
- Low self-esteem
- Ill health in yourself, or in someone close to you.
- Incapacitating fears and phobias
The opportunity to discuss your problems with someone who will give you their undivided attention, who will hear what you say and respect and value who you are, can be of enormous value at these times. A counsellor is trained to do just this, and more and more people are turning to counselling at difficult times in their lives.
