Counselling and Psychotherapy

'The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon,

but that we wait so long to begin it'

What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?

Are you feeling anxious, stressed or depressed? Is the Covid-19 pandemic causing you more anxiety than normal? Are you finding it difficult to manage your day to day life? Do you have thoughts or feelings that it would be helpful for you to talk to someone about?

Counselling and psychotherapy can help by allowing you to talk about your problems, and any difficult feelings you may have, in a supportive and confidential environment. Sometimes people come to counselling and psychotherapy because they have something specific in their lives they want to change, while others come to explore their thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

Often people come to therapy because they cannot talk to other people about such personal issues, or because they want to speak to a professional with an objective viewpoint. Counsellors and psychotherapists are not here to tell you what to do, but rather to help you to talk about what is bothering you, and encourage you to find new ways of coping.

Counselling and psychotherapy can help you to understand yourself better, which in turn often helps you to find new ways to resolve problems. Counselling can also help you understand other people's points of view better, which can help with the way you may interpret other people's words and actions.
