Why Counselling?

There are many reasons why someone may wish to seek therapy. Sometimes, there may be an issue that dates back many years - something that you’ve been trying to push to the recesses of your mind.

It may affect other areas of your life and it might have felt preferable to try and compartmentalise the issues and your feelings around it rather than deal with it. You may fear that talking about it might be like opening Pandora’s Box and that once it is opened you may not be able to close it again. But rest assured sharing the problem can provide the means to set yourself free and I will only ever take things at your pace. We will only explore the issue if and when you are ready to.

You might simply feel you are stuck, or at a crossroads, unsure of how to break the deadlock of a situation or which direction to take. Many people find that therapy enables a deeper understanding of themselves and their life experience.

People seek counselling for many different reasons. These are just some of the issues I have helped clients explore:
