Maybe you are struggling in a relationship that does not seem to be working, or having difficulty at work or are out of work, maybe someone close to you has died or you are struggling as a parent. Or maybe nothing big is happening to you right now. Perhaps you just feel flat, stuck, depressed or lost, unable to shake off a nagging voice that something is not quite right and that life is not going quite the way you wish it would. You might feel you are existing, going through the motions and waiting for a future to begin in which you will feel better. We can get stuck in a rut in our lives, taking care of other people at the expense of ourselves, working too hard, eating or drinking too much. It can feel like the same things keep happening to us time and time again and we come up against the same problems and change feels impossible.
Counselling is a talking therapy which can take many forms and deal with a wide range of personal, emotional and spiritual issues past, present and future. Each therapist has their own approach so it is advisable to look at our professional counsellors to try to get a feel about who may be able to help you just now. Feel comfortable to contact them directly if you want more information about your requirements and we will offer some further guidance.
If we want to make changes in our lives, we may need support to do so. Counselling can be one source of support. It can give you time and space to listen and to understand yourself better. At times, it can difficult to do this by yourself, so finding a counsellor you can work with can help to encourage, facilitate and support you through the process of change.
We all face tough times through our lives
It is natural for most people to experience some level of anxiety and depression in their lives. It can be during times of change, life events and uncertainty. In some cases, it may be difficult to know how to manage those overwhelming feelings and emotions. People may adopt unhealthy and destructive behaviours to help them cope with the unhelpful thoughts and feelings. Long-term unhelpful behaviours can lead to problems in all areas of life.
