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 effect not only emotional wellbeing but also physical health, ability to work or relationships with others. The difficulties may arise from:
- Stress at work or at home
- Unexpected change or crisis
- Feelings of worthlessness
- 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.
