What is counselling?

Counselling gives you a safe space in which you can reflect on and talk about what’s going on for you, to understand more about why you are feeling as you do and to consider any changes you may like to make.

A counselling environment gives you the opportunity to begin to explore what is troubling you without fear of judgment and without the intrusion of someone else’s opinions and needs.
