Family and Relationship:

  • We help you to learn more about yourself and family situation and receive the support and guidance needed to get yourself and/or family back on track.

Stress and Anxiety:

  • Talking to a counsellor can help you to identify what is causing your stress and/or anxiety, and how to apply appropriate ways of coping with them.

Bereavement:

  • Bereavement counselling helps you to adjust to the changes that occur in your life when you lose someone who was important to you, so that you can come to terms with your loss and carry on with life and eventually find acceptance.

Depression:

  • Unlike the occasional bout of feeling sad, depression affects your daily life making it hard for you to find enjoyment in day to day activities.  Counselling has been found to be beneficial in addressing the challenges brought about by depression, in order to function more effectively.

Loneliness:

  • Speaking to a counsellor can help you feel connected with someone and supported. By talking to a professional, you can experience validation - it’s OK to feel this way, it’s not your fault and support is available.

­Low Self-Confidence:

  • Counselling can help you improve your self-confidence. It offers a safe space to consider what is realistic and achievable, and to explore disappointments and setbacks. Techniques and strategies can be developed to build your self-confidence and change current negative thought patterns.

Low Self-Esteem

  • Counselling establishes a secure, safe space in which you can confront the negative sense of self-worth you may be experiencing and help you to improve your self-esteem, so that you feel better about yourself and your life.

General Mental Health:

  • Mental health refers to the way in which we are aware of our own abilities and can cope relatively well with the ups and downs of life. In counselling we discuss the feelings that arise in conjunction with mental health issues, as well as explore ways to overcome any personal challenges or frustrations.

Trauma:

  • Trauma victims are encouraged to explore their feelings regarding the incident and look into how these could be resolved or changed.

Dementia:

  • While dementia is not physically painful and does not affect the appearance or mobility of the person, it can change their personality unrecognisably and, sadly, irreversibly. Counselling provides support for the person suffering as well as their loved ones.

Anger Management:

  • Anger management therapy helps you reduce the negative feelings and actions associated with anger, by allowing you to explore the possible causes and triggers, and work through underlying issues.

Bullying:

  • Whether you are currently being bullied, have been bullied in the past or are affected by it in another way, counselling helps you explore what is happening and your options and responses, in private and without judgement.
